Since 1990, Bob Gaudreau has watched his company grow from a startup to a major competitor in Maine’s construction industry. Bob’s love of renovation work was the fuel that sustained Hardypond Construction throughout its initial development. For years, Bob led teams working on countless renovation projects many contractors rejected due to the complexity and difficulty. These projects presented unique construction problems that had to be solved with out-of-the-box thinking. By never turning down a construction challenge over the course of decades, Bob acquired an immense knowledge of construction that benefits all of Hardypond’s clients.
Beyond his role as head of Hardypond Development, Bob is the founder of Hardypond Construction and recently served as Vice President. Bob now serves as a consultant at Hardypond Construction, and readily jumps in wherever help is needed. He can be seen drawing up estimates, checking on field progress, and doing anything in between. He helped set our culture — if Bob is involved in your construction project you will be able to reach out to him directly for the entire life of your project, as is the case for all Hardypond team members.
Outside of Hardypond, Bob has served on numerous committees and boards, including the Foundation Board at Central Maine Community College. He lives on the Maine coast and takes frequent trips to his vacation home in the Virgin Islands. Bob is an avid gardener and enjoys being active outdoors with his dog Oliver.
