Our principals are responsible for overseeing the operations of Rodda Construction. They are committed to enhancing our future growth by embracing sound work ethics, innovations in technology, and excellence in delivering quality projects.

Our family-owned firm is large enough to handle any assignment, but small enough that each client gets hands-on participation from our principals everyday.
