OUR CLIENT: Rogers & Pedersen Construction

Website: http://www.rp-construction.com



Rogers & Pedersen Construction has been fortunate to work with many leading wineries on the Central Coast. We operate from Santa Ynez to Paso Robles, delivering exceptional projects in both the commercial winery, hospitality, and unique custom residential sectors.  We are typically involved with projects from pre-design and entitlements phases, through construction. As general contractors, we approach each project with an open mind and great enthusiasm. We seek complex projects that require creativity, extensive coordination, and finite detail. We strive to know and understand our clients in such a way that our technical guidance reflects our understanding of their desires. We work closely with architects and design consultants to perfect their intentions first on paper, then in the field. We prefer to engage early in a project, even years before breaking ground, to immerse ourselves in the vision, and assure continuity from concept to completion.


We seek a Project Manager to manage projects from pre-construction and estimating, through the construction and closeout of the project.


This is a salaried, full time position with benefits.

This includes standard job site safety requirements and protocols, and any additional appropriate Covid-19 prevention tactics.
