More than Construction

Greenferd is more than a construction company. We are a communication company that wears steel toe boots and hard hats! Communication is critical on any team and a project team running a commercial construction project is no different. Greenferd prides itself on being a team of great communicators, and on constantly finding new ways to collaborate effectively through different communication methods. Scroll below to see some of the innovative ways we have expanded and utilized different platforms to help communication be at the forefront of how Greenferd helps our customers succeed.
