David H. French


“I learned my trade from my grandfather, who built Oklahoma City’s landmark Biltmore Hotel, and from my father, who taught me many lessons that a college education doesn’t teach about general construction. What I’ve absorbed from observing their work ethic, seeing their pride in a job well done, and following their business style has formed the foundation for D. H. French Construction Company.


Attended University of Central Oklahoma, O.S.U. Technical Institute.

Completed basic general education at U.C.O. and construction technology courses at O.S.U Tech.
