Cathleen Gruver

Ready to transform your views on the construction and design industry? We guarantee that our conversation with a fifth-generation contractor will do precisely that. She’s not just a contractor, but also a skilled interior designer, and she’s here to share her unique journey of blending her family’s legacy with her passion for design. Cathleen talks about the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated industry, but also highlight the importance of truly understanding clients and the advent of new technological trends. Plus, uncover the shifting paradigm towards a collaborative approach to the design-build process. 

Can early collaboration revamp how we approach design and construction? We believe so. Our deep-dive into the benefits of a well-rounded team right from the start of a project will make you reassess traditional methods. An architect, a contractor, and an interior designer on the same page from the get-go can prevent potential issues and even save money. But it’s not just about the teamwork, the rapport between these professionals is equally vital. They essentially become an extended family. So, brace yourselves for some insightful advice on choosing your project family and the inside scoop on the future of design and build projects.
