Our goal is to provide clients excellence in all services offered - design/build, open bid work in both public and private sectors, commercial, institutional and healthcare renovations, historical preservations and forensic investigations.

Company History

Ribbeck Construction Corporation traces its roots to 1946. Upon returning from WWII, Phil Ribbeck started a sole proprietorship under the name Phil E Ribbeck, General Contractor. Edward "Buzzy" Ribbeck, Phil's son, took the business to the next level in 1982 when he founded Ribbeck Construction Corporation and began further developing the company from a small home office sole proprietorship to a diversified corporation.

Buzzy has been involved in every phase of the design and construction process since childhood. He began his career in architecture thanks to a teacher that encouraged him after seeing his aptitude and talent for architecture and drafting. Studying architecture in college, as well as engineering and construction on his own, he began drafting plans while working hands-on as a carpenter for his father. In 1986 Buzzy began to expand the company into real estate and commercial property development. Furthering his prior education & knowledge in real estate investing, Buzzy completed all courses for the CCIM designation.

After founding Ribbeck Construction Corporation, Buzzy moved quickly into the broader markets of industrial and commercial construction, while expanding the customer base already in existence. He continues to emphasize the firm's tradition of excellence, quality, value, and client satisfaction - the core values instilled in the organization by Phil.

Today RCC is a national general contractor and design-build firm serving its clients in twenty-six states with a commitment to teamwork and quality.

RCC works to maintain a healthy balance of design-build and negotiated/open bid work in both the public and private sectors. Projects include new construction and/or renovations on religious, government, institutional, commercial, medical, historical and retail.

The collection of asset classes includes Class A Offices, Self-Storage Facilities, Retail Facilities, Housing and Land Developments. This vast experience in preliminary studies, financial proformas, appraisals, financing, designing, building, owning, managing, operating and most importantly maintaining these various types of assets has given Ribbeck a substantial edge in designing and constructing buildings for its clients.
