"We are a small company offering big results. Founded on the premise of quality over quantity we continually strive for perfection & satisfaction for our clients.

Please Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions about our company."

Rich started in construction as a framer back in the early eighties, mostly on the east side of St. Paul. In 1985 he decided an office job sounded good and has been designing trusses ever since. Over the years he has provided designs to 7 different truss plants throughout the country. The projects were small to large in 15 states. It’s a passion. In my spare time I’m an avid outdoorsmen, hunting and fishing.
