Jeff Lekwa


I started my career working a few short stints after getting my Associates in Construction Technology. Eventually, I landed at CR Walls and worked for Mickey Stuefen for over 20 years before joining him again at HRTLND’s EIA location in Cedar Rapids.

I live in a small town in Eastern Iowa called Columbus Junction and have been a carpenter with the local union since 1995. I love fishing the Iowa River close to home and am an avid softball player. I also am a volunteer fireman

When asked what I like most about working for HRTLND, it’s the laid back atmosphere that comes to mind. They let me do my job and trust the decades of experience I have.

Our field family is made up of building professionals with expertise in providing solutions in the trades of carpentry, plaster, painting, and finishing across the commercial construction industry. Their skills, knowledge, and craftsmanship allow us to provide the highest caliber of commercial construction services available in Iowa.

HRTLND was founded on hardworking Midwestern values in 2002, and since then, we’ve grown to become one of Iowa’s premier finishing subcontractors. Our goal to consistently exceed our customer’s expectations is only possible due to the dedication and expertise our team members provide day in and day out. We pride ourselves on providing a safe workplace where everyone can “hang their hat,” knowing that we are always there to take care of each other while reinforcing a culture of respect and autonomy.
