Chad Gill has always loved construction. Growing up on a farm, he mastered the art of fixing things at a young age. However, after a stint in the Virginia Military Institute and then the nuclear industry, Chad realized that he wasn’t putting this skill—or passion—to use. So, he decided to start his own construction company focusing on his favorite medium: concrete.

Now, Chad and his company, Concreate, are famous for their unique concrete surfaces. Using an innovative and economical process, the team at Concreate designs and creates polished concrete masterpieces for both residential and commercial projects. So, what makes Chad’s concrete stand out from the rest?
