Chad has been building things his whole life. At just five years old, he built a working go kart out of his dad’s form boards (of course Dad didn’t know they were cut up until afterward).
Chad started his company while in his senior year of high school, beginning his contracting career performing foundation repairs. Those projects included everything from deck stabilizing on hills, to glass home lifts and stabilizing, to 20 foot deep drainage excavations.
Jobs gradually led to bigger projects and the services GFR offered expanded. Now, GFR not only performs services as a sub doing concrete, foundations, house lifting, waterproofing, shoring, side sewers and storm lines, but also acts as general contractor on projects like million dollar home builds, apartment and multifamily builds, and remodels.
Always eager to learn more about his chosen industry, Chad continues to expand his knowledge of engineering and building. This led to GFR joining the approved list of companies on the small works roster for WSDOT, Sound Transit and Port Of Seattle.
Chad plans to grow this division of the business performing soldier piles, tiebacks, shoring, concrete, retaining walls, storm lines, erosion control, bridge and road repairs, expansion joint repairs, marine work (including floating pods for homes and piles and marine concrete repairs), and acting as prime contractor to complete these government contracts.
And on top of all that, if you ask nicely, he just might build you a sweet go kart out of form boards.
