ABOUT WIRTH

Gilbert J. (Chip) Wirth Jr. founded Wirth Development Corporation in 1988 alongside his wife, Patty. This family-run firm took off running with major home renovations and custom home building. Later these builders expanded into commercial projects and customizable single-family homes throughout the greater Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Whatever they set their sights on developing, Wirth team members go the extra mile to ensure clients are satisfied. Chip says, “We’re going to do what it takes to get it done.”

Something that sets Wirth Development Corporation apart from competitors is the relationships it has maintained with subcontractors and vendors for more than two decades. “They know we’re loyal to them and we’re not going to be building everything the cheapest that we can.” What this means to clients is that they can count on exceptional service and product consistency, regardless of economic swings.

"One of the things that makes us different from other builders is that I will meet with the customers if they have specific questions or concerns," says Tim Riley. Request for customizations, an area Wirth specializes in, are met with positive attitudes and creative mindsets skilled in overcoming challenges. "People will go with us for our willingness to adjust for them," adds Tim.

Clients truly get the total package when they work with Wirth. "We are a very competitively priced builder," says Chip. "We're able to give a much nicer product for a much much better price and we've been able to do that through some of the hardest times in the economy," explains Tim. Years of experience in various arenas show clients that builders at Wirth are committed to constructing high-caliber projects on time and on budget. Chip sums it up best, "We offer people a great combination of quality and price."

OUR TEAM

CHIP WIRTH President & Builder

Gilbert J. (Chip) Wirth, Jr. is the person that makes things happen behind the scenes of Wirth Development Corporation. His thorough nature ensures budgets are followed and deadlines are met. He developed an understanding of the business-side of home building during his 30-plus years in project management. Such experience allows clients to rest easy knowing their homes will be delivered as promised. A true fan of Hampton Roads and all it has to offer, Chip says, “It’s a great place to raise a family.”

Even as a teenager, Chip could be found on construction sites working as a part of a framing crew or assisting a brick mason. Graduating from Old Dominion University with a degree in mechanical engineering gave him the educational background to compliment his growing practical knowledge base. He expanded his project management experience during his employment at Virginia Power. Hired as a project engineer, this confident self-starter earned a promotion to shift supervisor. “The organizational skills required in project management are the same, whether you’re building a house or a steam turbine.”

TIM RILEY Partner

Tim Riley is a local builder with a spirit of integrity. This graduate of First Colonial High School has dedicated his life to creating homes that are not only beautiful to live in, they’re practical to own. He is construction manager and partner alongside his brother-in-law, Chip Wirth, at family-operated Wirth Development Corporation. Growing up in a family where ingenuity was revered helped mold Tim into a builder known for creating homes today’s buyers appreciate. He brings a myriad of skills to the ever-changing industry of residential construction.

His bachelor’s degree in economics from Radford University provided Tim with the perfect foundation for success. His summers off from high school and college were spent learning about the business from the ground up on construction job sites. He later accepted a position as a superintendent at Wirth Development Corporation. This builder then began learning all of the construction trades. “Having that hands-on experience for that amount of time is more beneficial than coming in with just a scheduling or pricing background,” Tim adds, “I am definitely more well-rounded in that respect.”
