Over the past 18 years we have assembled a team of best-in-class professionals with expertise in a wide range of facility and construction types including program and project management, architectural, construction management, MEP and fire suppression engineering, general contracting, subcontracting, owner/developer, and consulting.  This “boots in the dirt” experience sets RMSPM apart from other PM/CM firms, and we believe is invaluable when performing constructability reviews, as well as assembling budgets and project schedules.

Through a team based approach, RMSPM provides the strengths and specialties needed for each phase of a project. Through real experience, our team has developed strong relationships with design consultants, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers, allowing us to assemble the strongest team for each project that then work together to develop, manage the scope, schedule, and budget. Our emphasis on collaboration results in a cohesive management team for the duration of the project.
