Founder and President Greg Oleszczuk, and his father before him, were both skilled trade workers – a tradition that carries through much of Westwind’s leadership team today. In 1977, Greg founded a concrete construction company, G.O.E. Contractors, with a pickup truck, his tools and a crew of five. In 1982, he branched out to form Westwind. Greg’s son, Pete Oleszczuk, now carries on the family legacy as Westwind’s Vice President of Construction.
Passion for What We Do and Who We Do It For
Westwind does much more than build. We listen closely to get to know you and plan for your future, creating a building that will help you achieve your goals. By approaching everything we do with integrity, we focus on building lasting relationships with our clients and in the communities we build. Using our design/build model, we walk with clients through every step of the planning and building process – from master planning, design and construction, to completing maintenance and updates.
Investing in Our Communities
Westwind strives to improve our community and the world around us – whether it’s conducting every business interaction with integrity, standing behind our work, or investing in the communities where we build. We support local organizations and schools committed to equipping future skilled trade workers, as well as many other local non-profit groups.
Each year we give our time and resources to groups that make our communities stronger and brighter.
We recently contributed to the development of two playgrounds in our core communities – Traverse City and Grand Haven.
Deck for Veterans
After learning about deteriorating conditions at a local veteran’s home, some Westwind crew members organized a deck-build on their time off.
