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 help you plan for your future by designing a building that will lay the foundation for your future success. By approaching everything we do with integrity, we focus on cultivating lasting relationships with our clients and the communities in which 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 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.
Organizations We Sponsor
Feeding America West Michigan Mobile Food Pantry
As the sponsor of half a dozen Feeding America West Michigan Mobile Food Pantry events in Grand Haven, Westwind team members bundled up to package and hand out 750 lbs. of fresh food to those in need.
We've 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.
