About Derucki

Derucki Construction Company was founded with four simple goals in mind – to exceed the expectations of our clients and the design team members we work with, to deliver an exceptional final product, to build positive relationships, and to be regarded as the most ethical commercial construction company in the industry.


To encourage craftsmen into higher levels of quality, safety and teamwork, there are certain things you must be, know, and, do. These do not come naturally, but are acquired through hard work and continuous learning. Our project managers and superintendents are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are not resting on their laurels – they work hard to make things happen.

John began his career in the construction at the age of 16 when he took his first position as a field survey crew member at a small civil engineering firm in his hometown of Anderson, Indiana. Since that time he has had the opportunity to work with some of the largest construction companies in the industry and has held the position of field engineer, superintendent, project manager, project executive, and vice president before becoming a co-founder of Derucki Construction Company.

Throughout his career, John has focused on gaining a wide range of experience. His background includes projects in retail, healthcare, hospitality, high-rise multi-family, restaurant, office, mixed-use and entertainment. Through these experiences, and his strong background in civil, structural, mechanical and electrical related issues, John brings a well rounded personal history to meet the unique challenges of each project.

John is steadfast in his commitment to ensuring the company meets or exceeds the expectations of their clients. He believes that when the team is committed to achieving their goals for quality, safety and schedule all other aspects of the project will follow. He is devoted to empowering his team with the authority to make decisions, ensuring they have the needed resources, constantly fostering leadership and being accountable for their projects success.

John received his Bachelor of Science in Building Construction from Purdue University, where he was named a Distinguished Alumni in 2005, and his Master of Business Administration from Keller Graduate School in Chicago, Illinois.
