Radu has over 15 years of experience in construction – starting when he was 16. He was a painter for 7 years in Austria, then moved on to tile installation. He later grew into a general contractor role as he gained knowledge in all aspects of construction. Radu loves to remain ‘hands on’ and installs tiles, paint, frame, and performs everything needed at the site. His work philosophy is to not cut corners and to communicate clearly to provide the best finished outcome for his client. His military service in Austria at age of 19 taught him to be disciplined and punctual. Radu also has a bachelor degree in theology. When he is not at the project site, he loves to spend time with his six children and wife. He also enjoys exercise and playing chess.
