Team Member Spotlight: Rachel Breuer

At Cardinal Construction, we think the greatest value we can bring to our clients is a strong team, comprised of individuals that work well to effectively manage the building process. From pre-construction planning through ribbon cutting and beyond, we want the building process to be fun and engaging for all involved.

With that in mind, we’ve been highly strategic in crafting the team we have in place today. Our company culture is defined by a belief that all team members are important to our process and our projects. We have high standards for quality, service and integrity, and enjoy working with Clients and design partners that share our values.

Over the course of the next several months, we’ll be introducing readers to the unique people that make up the Cardinal Construction team. It’s our hope that you’ll find connection as you learn more about who we are, and what makes our people tick.
