Our Approach

At the beginning of each project, Rabren develops a specialized and project-specific approach based on the needs our client and the conditions of the project. This approach includes a unique blend of services and delivery methods and Rabren’s way of bringing the best value to our client and the project team. To start, we fully understand all the available details of the project and then move into the planning process which continues throughout the project with other members of the project team, including the Owner, Architect, Engineers, Consultants and Subcontractors. With our approach, we execute the plan with an eye for quality, schedule and budget. Starting with the closeout in mind allows Rabren to deliver a quality project, on-time and within budget – consistently delivering results, whatever it takes!


RGC considers the preconstruction phase of any project critical to its success. As such, we offer extensive preconstruction services ranging from preliminary budgeting at each phase of design  and scheduling creation, to constructability reviews and value engineering. Within the preconstruction process, our team is also able to #TeamUp with subcontractors and involve their teams to get specialty knowledge in their areas of expertise. Our experienced team can provide conceptual estimates, preliminary BIM services, design assistance and target value design input; preparing the project team to deliver results in the field.

Self-Performed Work

Rabren is a true builder in every sense of the word. Our team has craftsman on staff that self-perform specialty scopes, including concrete, rough carpentry, specialties insulation and more. During this process, our team can control quality and cost in these areas, bringing our Clients cost savings and high-quality results. Self-performing work allows our team to set the pace early on a project and provides stabilization from fluctuations in the Subcontractor market.

General Contracting

The largest portion of our volume is completed via the general contracting delivery method. Here RGC uses its experience and expertise to work directly with the owner on a project, both self-performing work and managing subcontractors. With our experienced staff, we can manage every aspect of a project from budget and schedule to material delivery and onsite logistics. Our team has deep and long-standing relationships with the subcontractor communities in the regions that we serve, giving us the ability to leverage these relationships to create added value in terms of quality, schedule and budget.

We pride ourselves on delivering quality projects to our clients and building lasting relationships based on that value that we deliver. Our team has experience in major construction markets, providing GC services in K-12, Higher Education, Student & Multifamily Living, Hospitality, Sports & Recreation, Government, Office, Healthcare, and more.  

Green Services

Rabren General Contractors is able to provide our clients with a range of Green Services such as LEED® and SITES services. We have LEED® Associate Professionals on staff and have completed projects that have earned LEED® certifications on projects ranging from LEED® 2009 Certification for New Schools to LEED® Platinum, as well as SITES certification. Rabren understands the value that these sustainable options bring to our Clients and we are also committed to growing our LEED® accredited and SITES experienced professionals on staff.


Design-Build provides simplicity and ease to our clients with the combination of design services and construction performance under one contract; allowing the Owner to have one place to go for all services of the project. Leading the Design-Build effort allows Rabren to be involved from the project’s conceptual design to the final construction documents being issued; giving our team the information to best utilize our client’s resources. This delivery method allows all parties involved to have open lines of communication and promotes a team environment from start to finish on the project, bringing the best value to the Client.

Value Added Services

Our team prides itself on staying ahead of industry standards in areas of safety, scheduling and technology. Our Best Practices in these areas can bring added value to our Clients in areas of quality control and cost savings. We currently offer services in Lean Scheduling Methods, Building Information Modeling (BIM), virtual construction and clash detection. Alongside, we utilize app-based products to enhance our quality control and safety on projects. Gaining buy-in from all members of the project team has resulted in measurable schedule and quality advantages that we are able to pass on to our Clients. Our goal is continued growth in relation to innovation and technology, and we are always looking for new ways that will allow our team to deliver a quality project with added value to our Clients.
