In his role as Director of Special Projects, Bob is constantly seeking out new materials and new techniques to meet clients’ ever-changing needs in the construction industry. A specialist in building engineering and design, Bob scours the world to keep abreast of the latest developments in the construction field, traveling to international trade shows and making vendor contacts to find state-of-the-art solutions for the Unique Building Group’s clients. It is through Bob’s commitment to keep learning and never stand still that Unique Building Group is able to move more quickly and with more ingenuity than other construction firms. Through in-depth consultations, Bob comes to understand the needs, expectations, and budgetary requirements of each client, and then uses his depth of experience to devise creative solutions for their project, training field personnel in new techniques when necessary to get results that exceed expectations.
Bob has worked in construction since he was 15 years old, taking advantage of his high school shop classes to pursue his love of design and craftsmanship. He earned a degree in construction management from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, then went on to work as a project superintendent for some of the world’s largest home builders, first at Centex and then at Cambridge Homes. He met Unique Building Group’s cofounders Richard and Paul Thompson in San Diego when they worked on their first construction project together; building a fence. Together with Richard and Paul he helped found Unique Building Group on their shared principles of creativity and commitment to delivering quality to their clients.
