In 1992 Rich Guthmann acquired his General Contractors license and began Guthmann Construction. Since then the business has evolved into a successful design-build firm renovating homes in neighborhoods such as Myers Park, Foxcroft, Dilworth, Montibello, Providence Country Club, and Piper Glen. On February 5, 2015, Rich Guthmann announced a gradual transfer of ownership of his firm to Production Manager Rick Haase and Architect Tony Gray.
“We could not be more pleased and energized about the future of our company,” said Rich Guthmann. “Rick and Tony have been key to the excellent reputation and success that the company enjoys today.” Speaking of the longtime employees, he continued, “They bring matchless leadership and stability, and both have a deep sense of commitment to our distinctive way of doing business.”
We are dedicated to delivering comprehensive design-build services to homeowners seeking innovative design and impeccable construction. Our goals include building custom living spaces at a competitive price, maintaining client relationships through exceptional customer service, and upholding our reputation for consistent communication, superior craftsmanship, and attention to detail. We are committed to providing a safe and positive work environment, employing men and women of integrity, and achieving sustainable growth within our business. As we do business, we seek to honor and glorify God with our words and actions.
Exceptionally skilled in the trade, Rich has always believed having a great team is what makes a successful construction business. After 12 years of serving as Director of Camp Lurecrest, a career change led Rich to full-time construction with a Charlotte area remodeler. In 1992, he acquired his General Contractors license and began Guthmann Construction.
Rick is a licensed General Contractor and has received the Certified Lead Carpenter Accreditation. He serves as our Production Manager, overseeing and maintaining the highest standards in the field and delivering a professionally executed project. Additionally, Rick grew up as a “Missionary Kid” in Africa. There, he received a practical “hands-on education” in all types of construction.
Tony is a registered Architect in North and South Carolina with over 30 years of experience. As our Architect, he works closely with clients and oversees the coordination of our Design-Build process. Tony received a B.A. in Architecture from the College of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
