Green Company over 29 years, as a General Foreman and Project Superintendent.  With an array of project experiences rooted in medical, commercial and education, his working knowledge of the build ability and coordination of any type of construction project was second to none.  Bob's experience, organizational skills, along with his willingness to be a team player made him among the best and most respected in the industry.  Bob was an avid MSU fan, loved hunting and enjoyed actively managing his farm.
