OUR TEAM

ABOUT JOHN

John Thorsland entered the construction business at an early age. Brought up in the trades, John grew up working on his father’s construction projects, learning all aspects of building and framing. Developing a fondness for concrete, John began creating relationships with builders in the area and started pouring concrete during his breaks from school. After graduating from Brown University with a degree in Biology, John decides to break away from the family business and try his hand in concrete construction. He never looked back and continues to love spending time on job sites and meeting with customers. When John is not on a project, you will find him training in his karate dojo, fishing our local rivers for smallmouth, or spending time with his family.
