Executive Vice President
RUSH Construction Inc.
Al Forbes serves as executive vice president of RUSH Construction Inc., a firm with a portfolio of Central Florida projects that includes commercial, medical, marine and aerospace clients, notably NASA and Kennedy Space Center. RUSH was founded 35 years ago and is an employee-owned company.
Before coming to RUSH, Forbes’ experience included manager of facility construction at Wuesthoff Health System in Rockledge and project manager at another local construction company, where he was in charge of overseeing the construction of medical and health facilities.
After a conversation with William Chivers, the president and CEO of RUSH who has led the company for the past 21 years, Forbes decided to make a change and helped spur the evolution of RUSH Construction from a government aerospace/defense contractor into a diversified firm that provides construction services in the medical, commercial and marine industries. As executive vice president, Forbes is involved in all projects, but his specialty and focus is in the medical/commercial divisions.
“I enjoy the challenges of starting a health care project from conceptual design through development and how the results positively impact patient care,” he said.
He is proud of the way RUSH gives back through various philanthropic initiatives and the firm’s commitment to maintaining an outstanding safety program.
