Company Owner / Project Executive
Rick McMinn is a seasoned 3rd generation builder with over 20 years of experience in the construction industry. His passion for construction started early in his career when he worked as a Master Electrician, where he honed his skills as a project manager and leader of a team of more than 60 electricians.
With his team's consistent delivery of high-end electrical finish-outs, Rick's clients began entrusting him with the entire construction process from the ground up to the finish-out. This led to a complete transition into the General Construction world, where he has since cultivated relationships almost entirely within the hospitality segment.
Rick has executed diverse builds, ranging from small-scale, eclectic dive bars to large-scale, high-end builds across different industries, including hospitality, industrial, and tenant improvement. He is committed to delivering turn-key projects that meet his client's needs and expectations.
Teddy Ryan - Project Manager
With over five years of experience in the field and over seven years in management, Teddy Ryan is a skilled project manager with a wealth of knowledge in estimating, managing, budgeting, and executing small to large-scale builds. Teddy is not content with merely sitting behind a computer screen and delegating tasks to subcontractors. He enjoys being plugged into his work and is unafraid to get his hands dirty. Teddy prioritizes cultivating relationships with managers, clients, and the men and women on the ground who help make his clients' dreams a reality.
For Teddy, General Construction Management is about keeping the entire team motivated and informed, providing regular updates on addenda/submittal revisions and RFI responses, and making those documents available for on-site collaboration through PlanGrid. His fluency in Spanish and extensive experience managing teams in high-end, high-stakes finish-outs, primarily in the TI and medical sectors, make him an invaluable asset to the team.
Teddy is the main point of contact for managerial and financial correspondence and is available as a backup contact for immediate on-site needs after Nate, our General Superintendent.
