Keizer’s Rich Duncan could be excused for wanting to take it easy.

The president and founder of Rich Duncan Construction Inc. was Keizer’s Merchant of the Year in 2008, Salem Chamber Business of the Year in 2011, a past president of the Keizer Chamber of Commerce and is currently nominated for a national award.

Oh, and Duncan’s company spearheaded a project in 2010 for the TV show Extreme Makeover.

But Duncan doesn’t slow down.

“It seems like it’s not over yet,” said Duncan, 45. “We’re still riding the tide. In this field, you’re always out of business when you finish a project. It’s about getting a good referral and getting your name put on lists. The engine is bigger now, so it takes more business now to keep it going. You can never let your guard down.”
