Raised in a family that worked in construction, Chris Gucwa’s interest in the industry began early on. His 26 years of experience in the industry has taken him from carpenter to general foreman to his current role as a project superintendent. Chris’s career with Ideal Contracting began three years ago. His strong work ethic was apparent from the very beginning. Chris is always willing to pick up his tools to work alongside his team whenever needed to get the job done.
Chris brings a robust skill set to the Ideal Contracting team with his experience working with concrete, masonry, interiors, and underground work. He has managed work in many different settings, including automotive plants, steel mills, oil refineries, and offices. Chris recently worked on the DTE River Rouge and Warren Service Center projects installing concrete pads for air handling units. His ability to lead his team to complete a project safely and on schedule successfully has made him an asset to the Ideal family. Chris understands the importance of teamwork and how much more can be accomplished as a team instead of a group divided.
Safety is the most important of Ideal Contracting’s core value to Chris. He demonstrates that value- live, lead, and empower each other to ensure everyone goes home safely – every day when he is on site.
“Chris is never the one to say he can’t get it done. He consistently does what it takes to get the job done.” Kevin Kinney, Corporate Superintendent
