Building Culture

“In 1945, Edward J. Gerrits founded a quality-oriented, owner-friendly construction company focusing on the commercial construction industry in South Florida. More than 75 years, 8 countries and 17 states later, those guiding principles continue to be the foundation of the Gerrits family's third generation firm. Our solid reputation is based on our commitment to quality and client satisfaction. Gerrits Construction, Inc. will continue to build upon its reputation as a well-respected, innovative and responsive leader in the construction industry.”

-David P. Gerrits, 3rd Generation President

Integrity, honesty and fairness are important ideals that have enabled this company to grow from a small storefront operation in 1945 to the worldwide, well-tested and proven company it is today. Equally important is the company philosophy that we are not financially-driven, but client satisfaction-driven. With these guiding principles, Gerrits Construction is able to continue our exceptional reputation and commitment to our employees and clients.

In our commitment to consistent excellence in performance of our work we have instituted LEAN Construction Management into our culture. We strive to understand a client’s ideas and input on the final product. LEAN Construction serves to reduce waste, enhance quality, improve operations for a smoother flow and reduce operating costs.

We recognize that our most important asset is our employees and Gerrits Construction is constantly building on its team culture. We encourage innovation in a cross functional way by giving each employee the best leadership and training which in turn allows our Team to consistently deliver superior projects on time and within budget. 

Quarterly company meetings along with celebratory lunches and social gatherings help bring our team together, boost the morale and establish a family-like atmosphere within the company that carries over into our work ethic with our partners. Our employees thought enough of Gerrits Construction to nominate us “Best Places to Work” with the South Florida Business Journal, which we won recognition for. Employees’ hard work and projects are recognized by awards through the various construction organizations.

The company culture we have cultivated carries over to managing your projects with success.

 

 

Our commitment to quality and client satisfaction, teamed with steady growth and a strong financial status, has put us in the unique position of being able to provide our clients with innovative and workable construction solutions.

We are in the business of exceeding our client's expectations by providing the best construction related services available today. The cornerstone of our growth has been the company's proven ability to deliver consistent quality construction within the time and budget constraints of each project. Our accomplishments are possible because many of our original team of professionals have grown with us and share our beliefs in the value of a satisfied client. The tradition of long-term and rewarding relationships with fellow employees and clients is still one of our core values.

With progression and change comes growth. Our company has grown due to our visions to explore beyond what is current into the future of technology, education and training. Our company policy is to not only continuously train and educate our personnel on current technology and methods, but to seek out and test new means and methods to better serve our clients.
