Working at RDC

What does working at RDC look like? 

We strive to create a flat organization where all team members have a voice and have a strong sense of responsibility for their contribution to RDC's overall performance.

Our Culture

  1. We plan, We Huddle, We Forecast, We measure!  It's not for everyone.

  2. Our goal is to bring maximum value to our clients, trades, consultants and staff.

  3. RDC works with business coach and industry leader Shannon Susko. We have been implementing her Metronome system since 2015. 

  4. Through this journey we also found LEAN construction and started a grass roots implementation in 2019. RDC needed to utilize our staff more and grow them to become world class problem solvers. (See recent blog on our lean adoption)
