Narrative and History
Gerald H. (Jerry) Ricci – Owner / President
In 1988 Jerry Ricci founded Schell Creek Construction. Starting out with a license limit of $150,000, Jerry pursued any job he could find, including digging post-holes, building fences, home remodels, additions and concrete work. Eventually these projects led to larger projects such as custom homes and commercial work. At the present time Schell Creek Construction continues doing small jobs as well as a variety of larger commercial projects, office complexes, convenient stores, restaurants, remote weather stations, information centers, dentist offices, medical offices, bar and grills, custom homes, water pump stations, and much more.
Schell Creek Construction now has a license limit of $7,000,000, and has completed construction projects for various mining and mining supply companies including: Silver King Mine, Robinson Bald Mountain Mine, Cortez Gold, Amselco, Kennecott Copper, Quadra Mining, Atlas Copco, and Wheeler Machinery. Other entities include Sierra Pacific Power Company, ATT, Nevada Department of Transportation, Nevada Department of Public Works, City of Elko and Frontier Communications.

The sne Includes an oil and lube and parts store and a bar and grill . Schell Creek Construction worked very diligently and was able to meet construction within budget. I would highly recommend them for any construction or remodel.

They are easy to communicate with and make every effort to accommodate any special needs as a non-profit cultural organization.
