Gavin’s primary objectives are to ensure customer satisfaction and project completion. Gavin, like the owner of CORE, was brought up in the construction industry. Starting out working as a carpenter for his father, Gavin established himself as an exceptional Project Manager, which afforded him valuable experience around the home. Gavin began working with CORE Remodeling in 2011 as a carpenter and site superintendent. By 2013, Gavin hung up the tool belt and became a full time PM.
Gavin is originally from Vermont and has called Raleigh home since his youth. He currently lives in Raleigh and loves spending time with his family. He enjoys being a great dad, camping at the beach, and closely following his Patriots and Red Sox.
Adrian Harkey is CORE’s founder and President. Adrian grew up in the construction industry which created a driving passion from an early age to build things. Shortly after moving to Raleigh in 1997, Adrian finished college at NC State and launched his construction business. His roots in carpentry have enabled Adrian to obtain the skills and understanding required to efficiently manage a project from concept to completion.
When he finds free time, Adrian can be found at the gym, running, mountain biking, or any other outdoor activity. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons and is a huge fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and NC State Wolfpack.
Cheryl’s primary role is to manage the daily office duties and coordinate product selections between client and vendor. Cheryl is the newest member of CORE’s management team. She brings a vast amount of experience from previous years in the construction industry.
Cheryl is married and lives locally with her husband. She and her husband have raised their children who are now grown up and have provided her with loving and affectionate grandchildren.

Eric is originally from Ohio and now calls Raleigh home. He lives locally with his wife and two children but occasionally gets up north to visit family.
