After 16 years in the commercial construction market in the Mid-Atlantic region, we’ve come to realize that our passion is the people in this industry. Gael Force Consulting helps candidates find their passion and helps clients build successful companies.



At Gael Force Consulting, we flip the script, disrupting the traditional recruiting process. We look at recruitment from the candidate’s perspective to find the perfect position in the architecture / engineering / construction industry. 



At our core, Gael Force is a CONNECTOR. We love to find the similarities in people and match them together whether facilitating a deal or helping them grow their network.
