Reputation for Excellence since 1981

RDM General Contractors was founded in 1982 as an architectural and general contracting firm. Upon enjoying rapid growth and success, founder Robert McCarthy restructured and streamlined the company in 1991. This refinement allowed the firm to hone its construction technique and flexibility to build high-quality luxury homes with expediency in a competitive marketplace. Today, the company is proud to have Principals Chris Lindsay, Scott Willson and Robert McCarthy at the helm, who jointly oversee every project.

Personal Supervision Every Step of the Way

Clear communication is critical to every stage of the construction process. Interactions are facilitated by our skilled project managers who monitor work in progress through daily site management and weekly meetings. We ensure that the homeowner is continually updated on scheduling and project timeline. We believe a personalized approach builds trust, strengthens client relationships, and facilitates successful and timely project completion. More than 90% of our clients have been referred by satisfied RDM Homeowners, many building multiple homes with us.

Craftsmanship and Quality are the Foundation

Craftsmanship and quality are the foundation of RDM's philosophy. Our crew and subcontractors are superior in their field, and elevated RDM to the prestige it enjoys today. We take pride in pouring our expertise into every single project we build. We believe in top-notch construction quality, from pre-job planning with the homeowner and architect to the final building phases. We work toward one common goal of delivering the outstanding results our clients expect and deserve. Every dream home we build encompasses our commitment to excellence.
