As a project executive for Turner Construction Company, Tim Krueckeberg helps clients maximize their investments. He connects architects, engineers and subcontractors, while ensuring a safe, high-quality project.
He also makes time to mentor young professionals and help community organizations with service projects.
“I am lucky to have been involved with meaningful projects that improve the world,” says Krueckeberg. “From hospitals to higher education facilities, when I get involved with these projects, I think about how many lives might be saved or how many future leaders will learn and create new cures for the human race.”
Krueckeberg calls the School of Construction Management Technology “the gateway” for his professional success.
“My Purdue degree provided the training and education to become a professional in the construction industry and in life,” Krueckeberg says. “Professor Wes Crawford would be at the top of the list [of favorite professors]. He provided guidance with my first job assignment out of school.”
Krueckeberg has been helping Purdue with campus projects for more than 11 years, and has been recruiting students for Turner Construction for nearly 20 years.
He also has been involved with the Construction Advisory Council for 10 years and was honored to be an adjunct professor for three years, providing several guest lecture visits and judging student competitions.
Tim received the 2011 Staff Excellence award from Turner Construction, and in 2017, received the Excellence in Ethics award from the Indiana Subcontractors Association. He is a member of the U.S. Green Build Council and also serves on the Purdue Construction Advisory Council.
Krueckeberg lives in Westfield, Indiana, with his wife, Rachel, and their children, Jack and Megan.
