Chris Greene started his construction career in 1980, but the history of CGI extends back to Chris’s childhood. He worked during the summers for his grandfathers (both of whom were contractors).

These influential men helped to inspire his entrepreneurial spirit that ultimately formed Chris Greene Incorporated (CGI). It is Chris’s philosophy of teamwork that he credits with the firm’s success.

“We have high standards for everything we do and utilize all available resources to get a job done. Everyone is an important part of the team, from the owners to the vendors, subcontractors, project managers, field and office staff, we all work together to make these high standards pay off into a high quality project."

  – Chris Greene


Just as important as client relationships are our relationships within the community; that’s why CGI is a proud sponsor of RCOC - Racine County Opportunity Center (for children with special needs), Germantown’s Survive Alive House and Germantown’s K-9 program and the Germantown Relay For Life. We have been involved in local activities with a sponsorship of a youth hockey team, a race car at the Slinger Speedway, and a program sponsorship at the Feith Family YMCA in Port Washington.

CGI is a continued member of the Associated Builders and Contractors (Wisconsin Chapter), the Better Business Bureau, the Associated General Contractors of Greater Milwaukee (AGC), and the Germantown Chamber of Commerce.


CGI is so proud of our achievements and awards. We are thankful to the community for the recognition.
