Rick Gudz

Defence, Planning + Security

Determined at an early age to go into construction, Rick supported his father on projects as a developer and builder, and was inspired to learn everything he could about how the orchestra of designers, trades, and suppliers come together to create something special for the community.

Inspired by the camaraderie and teamwork inherent in construction projects, Rick is guided by principles of honesty and integrity, and isn’t afraid to reach out to his peers when he needs help. Whether he is building the Integrated Security Force Facilities for the 2010 Winter Olympics, or 3 different homes for his family, Rick takes on every project attending to the impact his work has on others.

After 35 years delivering projects for Defence Construction Canada, Rick joined CGI in 2018 and leads our Defence, Planning + Security teams. When he doesn’t have both feet on the ground in the middle of a construction site, Rick spends his free time fishing the waters off Vancouver Island, or sharing pastimes like golf and hockey with his family.
