Genuario Construction Company, Inc. (“GCC”) is a Virginia-based company with a Class A Contractor’s license that has served customers since 1978. The company was founded by Louis V. Genuario, Sr. (West Point, 1950 & Harvard University, 1956) who was a career officer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and moved to northern Virginia in 1964 when he was assigned to Pentagon duty. After retirement from the military and working three years for the District of Columbia as the Area Engineer in charge of the Mall Tunnel Project, he established L.V. Genuario & Associates. Inc. in 1970 and began building homes in Northern Virginia.

Over the years, the company’s business activities have expanded to include infill lot development, small subdivision development, and new home construction. To pursue these activities effectively, two separate companies were formed: Genuario Properties, Inc. (“GPI”) organized in 1983 to concentrate on land acquisition, land development and land resale activities. Wakefield Homes, LC (“Wakefield”) organized in 1995 to build new homes on individual lots and in small subdivisions. Both Wakefield Homes, LC and Genuario Construction Company, Inc. hold Virginia Class A Contractors Licenses.

Rick Genuario (UVA, 1977) joined GCC in 1978 after working in California for two years with Hughes Industries, and soon thereafter became president.

Louis V. Genuario, Jr. (VA Tech, 1980) joined the family business after working for four years at Bechtel Engineering, and is currently president of GPI and Wakefield Homes.

Louis’ son, Arthur Genuario (VA Tech, 2013), represents the third generation of Genuarios to bring their knowledge and expertise to the family business. Prior to joining the company in 2022, Arthur spent nearly a decade building homes with national builders in California and northern Virginia.

Remaining members of the GCC/Wakefield Homes team are a legend in their own right. They have been working together, with Rick and Louis, for a minimum of fifteen years each and have a combined total of 70 dedicated years served (and counting) between the four of them!

The Genuario name represents a continual awareness of and respect for the excellent craftsmanship that builders over two hundred years ago produced daily. The Genuario Companies are committed to these same high standards, and most importantly, they are dedicated to their customers by providing responsive communication and quality level of service.

The Genuario family takes pride in their strong community ties, and have been active leaders in their community, their churches, and the building industry at the local, state and national levels. They look forward to continuing to serve their customers and their community with the same warmth and friendliness that has made them successful over the years.
