Hammersmith Construction was established in 2008 as part of the breadth of services offered by Hammersmith Management, Inc. What started out as an owners representative and consulting service has expanded to a wide variety of services tailored to our clients unique needs. In the last twelve years, we have helped our Commercial, Homeowners Associations, and Residential clients save more than $18,000,000 in project costs and have completed more than $80,000,000 in total projects ranging from rehabilitation to restoration projects.
CEO John Hammersmith founded Hammersmith Construction Services in 2008. Like many other offerings under the Hammersmith name, Hammersmith Construction Services was created from the intersection of Homeowner necessity and John’s desire and ability to fill it.
With more than 38 years in the real estate management industry, John began to realize that many Homeowners lacked the knowledge and experience necessary to make decisions on construction issues. From writing the scope to procuring bids and all the way up through the actual completion of the project, he recognized that the construction process is foreign and complex to many, and that Homeowners needed a representative available to assist them every step of the way. Thus, Hammersmith Construction Services was born.
John is a native of Colorado and enjoys the outdoors with his wife, their four children, and their two grandchildren.

Greg Gerlach grew up in various parts of Iowa from Okoboji, Clear Lake to Des Moines. He attended Iowa State University after he went to Simpson College to play football and studied business management. During summers he spent his time framing and roofing houses. He has been involved in a few startups, from a wireless internet service provider in the Midwest, to a moving and storage company franchise. Greg became involved in disaster restoration at Service Master in Des Moines for five years. There he secured new projects and managed the projects to completion. He became certified in several areas of restoration, including water, smoke/fire, and odor restoration. From there he became interested in learning the insurance side of the restoration business, so he studied and became a multi-line claims adjuster for ACE, specifically the Rain & Hail, Farm & Ranch division. Through handling large loss P&C claims for farm and ranch policyholders throughout the United States and working closely with underwriters, he obtained a clear understanding of the carriers’ claims process including strategy and settlement.
Greg and his wife Jessica moved to Denver at the end of 2012. He worked for a local roofing company managing their estimation and production departments. Greg felt there was more to his path and decided it was best to directly serve the Community and Clients with his knowledge of all sides of the industry. This led him to join a public adjusting firm in Nov. 2014 to help investigate, plan, and estimate commercial building and HOA projects. He joined Hammersmith Construction in May 2019 to further his experience managing construction projects in the HOA industry. Greg holds his Class C General Contractor Certification.
Outside of work, Greg dedicates his time to his son and daughter, wife Jessica, and their two dogs Yoshi and Chloe. He loves to be outdoors, workout, watch any sport, travel, and working on their old Victorian home in Denver. They absolutely love being in Denver, CO.
