Jake V.

Project Manager

My family roots run deep in northern Minnesota and I’m proud to call it home.  I have a passion for construction, seeing project progress from concepts into reality, and client satisfaction. I value honesty, integrity, and fairness – values that Gardner Builders embodies well.  

My construction experience is broad covering the financial, educational, institutional, and industrial sectors.  Each project is unique with its own challenges, varying expectations, and desired outcomes.  I take great pride in developing relationships, learning about our clients and their specific needs to best deliver a project as expected.  

My attention to detail, experience, and skill sets allow me to help define a specific project, develop budgets, and ultimately coordinate the construction process from conception through completion.  My responsibilities include estimate preparation, contract documents, trade coordination, and project turn-over to the Owner.

Favorite Tool:

A Crane. They are a key component to any major structural construction.

Little Known Facts: 

I’ve traveled Europe extensively and learned to appreciate old-world building techniques in castles, cobblestone roads.

Winter is my favorite season – it provides many exciting activities with the snow and cold.

I’m a die-hard bow hunting enthusiast.
