Curtis Gahagan, Superintendent
What is the most exciting thing about working in this business?
I have worked on an array of projects in both commercial and residential for the past 36 years. That feeling of accomplishment after each project is completed is so satisfying for me. Seeing the result of our teams’ hard work and knowing I provided leadership and promoted a positive workplace morale makes me smile every time. Making our client’s vision a reality
What is your philosophy about giving back to the community?
What’s so unique about The Crowther Group is its consistent desire to build better communities for us all. This philosophy aligns with my belief as I’ve worked on some great projects like the Jesuit Preparatory School, DFW International Airport and the largest Volkswagen dealership in the U.S. In short, it’s about knowing I’ve made a difference.
Name a technology innovation that has made an impact in construction or an area where there are opportunities for innovation.
As superintendent, the way we work has certainly changed over the years. I’ve always done a lot of collaborative work with the general contractor and subcontractor. Today’s online construction technology like our project management tool, Procore, allows me to coordinate contract drawings, specifications, addenda and work order changes, efficiently and effectively with them via my smart phone. This reduces time and allows us to track budgets, processes and stages of the construction process in real time.
Tell us an awesome fact about yourself or the role you have in the company.
I was in the Air Force and actually began my construction career there as a journeyman carpenter. I have owned my own business and have worked in many facets of construction, including framing homes, structural steel, architectural concrete and more. My favorite type of construction is ground up, where I take a project from dirt to a building. The Crowther Group allows me to engage my entrepreneurial nature and take ownership of each project I oversee. It’s what I like best about the company and the people I work with.
