RBC Construction’s President and CEO, Ron Bierma, knows the hard labor of construction. Ron was only eight when he started pushing wheelbarrows. He learned demolishing, cleaning, framing, and siding while working for his dad. He also worked for grading and underground pipeline companies, where he operated bulldozers installing sewers. This full-range of experience became Ron’s edge over single-trade contractors.
The firm specializes in commercial and residential remodeling. It is adept at providing full-service home renovations such as adding rooms and outdoor spaces, remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, and updating design features.
