Genuario Construction Company, Inc. 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, M.S. Civil Engineering & MS Harvard University 1956) who was a career officer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and moved to Norther 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.
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 four years for Bechtel Engineering, and is president of GPI and Wakefield Homes.
Over the years, the company’s business activities have expanded to include in-fill 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, LLC (“Wakefield”) organized in 1995 to build new homes on individual lots and in small subdivisions. Wakefield Homes, LLC holds a Virginia Class A Contractors license.
The Genuario name represents a continual awareness and respect for the excellence of the craftsmanship that builders over two hundred years ago produced daily from the most modest of structures to the more stately. As this was their standard, the Genuario Companies are committed to these high standards. And most importantly, they are dedicated to the customer through responsive communication and overall service. Our experience and achievements are a testament to our commitment.
The Genuario family takes pride in their strong community ties, and have been active leaders in the community, church, and building industry at the local, state, and National level. 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.
