Richard & Richard Construction, Inc. Services and Awards

THINK OUTSIDE THE TOOLBOX.

Philosophy

The fundamental truth in commercial construction: you’re not building a structure, you’re building a business. That’s what sets Richard & Richard apart. We understand that your space must be a physical testament to your vision. That’s why, before we set the first nail, we make sure we understand not just your project parameters, but your idea of business success.

“For us, "scope of work" is merely a starting point. Our team members instinctively reach for greater success, addressing each item while aiming for the best possible end result. While other companies focus on industry standards for quality and workmanship, our standard is whatever it takes to achieve success.”

— Rick Woolsey, CEO

Accuracy

We don’t do guesswork. Experience has taught us that the only way to successfully meet your scope, timeline and budget is with a process that ensures accuracy at every level. At Richard & Richard, this process means accountability for each team member and transparency for you.

“When we look at a structure, what we see is an interconnected myriad of details - each one as important as the next. Seeing ahead of time how all these come together makes the difference.”

— Rod Andrew, Chief Estimator

Communication

Communication is the cornerstone of all success. Not just emails, but an open, thorough and frequent dialogue. At Richard & Richard, you’ll have one contact person, available to you day or night. Job description: to keep you informed of everything you need to know, when you need to know it.

“One big key to success is communicating thoroughly and frequently with clients and each other. That way, there are no ugly surprises.”

— Project Manager

Flexibility

Flexibility is the ability and willingness to react to your circumstances, rather than making you adjust to ours. Our broad skill sets and diverse network of partners allow us to scale for any size project and help shield your project from fluctuations in the market and economy.

“Flexibility is two things: experience and, quite frankly, willingness. We understand every facet of this business and therefore how to adapt. Just as importantly, we start every project knowing that, no matter the situation, we will do whatever it takes achieve success. Period.”

— Dave Rex, President

Partnership

What’s the difference between vendor and partner? A partner is someone who acts in your interest even when you’re not looking. Who understands your business, not just your budget. Who knows that the first job of a construction company is to build trust.

“Any building is a direct reflection of the partnership that created it. Strong relationships built on trust, communication and ethics result in projects that meet goals and stand the test of time.”

— Dave Rex, President

Strength

Our partners often tell us we combine the agility of a small company with the strengths of a big company. Richard & Richard has spent decades building the financial stability, breadth of resources, and economies of scale that can truly make a difference to your projects.

“Because of our experience and diversity of knowledge, we perform tasks that are supposed to require a company three times our size.”

— John Very, Vice President

Technology

Too many contractors are building 21st century projects with 20th century tools. Richard & Richard is the exception. We invest in proven technologies. Not for our own sake, but because it advances our capabilities and saves our clients time and money.

“Today, some of the most important construction tools don't go on your belt. They go on your screen. We're committed not just to adapt, but to lead.”

— Gary Seward, Lead Architect

CAPABILITIES AND SERVICES

Built on a Foundation of Experience

Richard & Richard handles diverse projects, encompassing a broad range of services, for both public and private sector. Many of our projects are in commercial, design/build and residential services. And all of it supported by nearly 22 years experience in the industry working for public agencies, municipalities, commercial developers, architects and engineers, the military, and private developers.

“We provide design build, bid build and design assist with any project. And while we often manage and bond very large projects, every job that enters our office is treated with the same attention to detail. No matter the size, our focus is providing unmatched service toward an on-time, on-budget, above-expectation result.”

— Rick Woolsey, CEO

Construction Management

Management is the art of creating success. On a personal level, it means there is no quitting time. On a community level, it means awareness of localities and the environment. On a business level, it means offering the client options to work towards a Guarantee Maximum Price while ensuring value and quality.

Design Build Services

Design Build services are a key part of our concept-to-finish capability. But while we manage a team of certified architects and designers to realize your vision, you’ll have just one point of contact. And our familiarity with local municipalities means faster permits and processing for you.

General Construction

Richard & Richard have the flexibility to work to your situation. We provide conceptual designs and development through our own design team. We also have a long history of working closely with architects and engineers to deliver excellence. Either way, the goal is to exceed your highest expectations for the lowest cost.

LEED

Green construction can greatly reduce your operating costs, increase durability, enhance marketability and improve workspace productivity. Richard and Richard has completed and in the construction of numerous LEED-certified buildings, including many designed implementing the LEED program but never commissioned. Let us consult with you on new emerging technologies and practices to help you take full advantage and the knowledge LEED can provide.

Pre-Construction Services

Richard & Richard’s attention to detail, quality control process and resource management starts before the first nail is hit. We take pride in smart pre-construction planning. What do all of our plans deliver? The highest quality for your dollar.

 

 

Value Engineering and Consulting

Are you getting the best value on your project? Unlike firms that simply cut scope, R&R aligns each product and service to the intended use. Can we leverage partner discounts? How do we prioritize spending? Would we invest our own money this way? We focus not just on great product, but on great value.
