In this week’s release of Season 3, Episode 4 (46-minute podcast) of the Future Construct Podcast, our host Amy Peck (@AmyPeckXR) is thrilled to be joined by Barry Wurzel, the Founder and President at Wurzel Builders.
Join our host, Amy Peck, to learn from Barry about Wurzel Builder's work renovating commercial projects in several sectors. Barry brings 33 years of construction management experience to his work. He spent fifteen years working with excellent companies like The Target Corporation and CF Jordan before forming Wurzel Builders in 1998. Over the years, they’ve worked with numerous companies, including HEB, Walmart, Starbucks, Target, CVS Pharmacy, and Charles Schwab. While it takes a lot to put a building together, Barry has learned over the years that it’s just as important to pull together a team, to orchestrate the personalities toward reaching a common goal. Barry is confident that not only will the company be able to offer clients the best quality of work, but also offer coworkers an exciting environment of growth and opportunity.
Wurzel Builders' transparent process, comprehensive services, and key sense to detail ensure that they can confidently deliver on time and on budget. They see the gaps ahead of time and offer proactive solutions and discover new possibilities designed with their team’s creative viewpoint. As a full-service general contractor and construction manager, we have extensive experience in construction, renovating projects in the hospitality, multifamily, healthcare, retail, industrial, office, and restaurant industries. Their comprehensive construction services, leadership, planning, and proactive approach to projects ensure each client’s vision is executed efficiently to meet or exceed their expectations.
