Work hard. Work smart. Work safe.

Safety is a top priority on our job sites and an integral part of River City Construction’s culture. To make sure we’re practicing top safety measures on each project, we provide our workforce with intensive training, mandatory practices, and frequent on-site inspections. Here are just a few examples of the training and communications we go through to keep costs down and avoid unnecessary downtime on projects: OSHA 30 cards, site specific orientations, outside training partners (Travelers), national and local safety stand downs, job hazard analysis, risk assessments and Tool Box Talks. We also use NoteVault for daily log reporting, and our Safety Awareness Program gives every employee incentive to practice safety with added bonuses throughout the year. At River City Construction, attention to safety is a win-win for everyone!


Creating ladders of economic opportunity.

Creating a diverse job site with our subcontracting partners and workforce is an important part of our company culture. That’s why we actively seek out MBE, WBE and VBE firms and continually build relationships with disadvantaged businesses to add to our list of subcontractors and suppliers. Since 2009, we have been part of the SBA 8A mentor/protégé program and successfully completed over $30 million in projects that utilized the mentor/protégé joint venture. And in 2019, River City Construction was awarded USMCA Contractor of the Year. Rest assured, when you work with us, you’re not just getting quality construction. You’re helping build ladders of change and opportunity in your community.

We take the motto ‘learn something new every day’ to heart.

No question about it…River City Construction aims to be the best and continually trains our project teams and workforce on how to improve job quality and consistency. From weekly Tool Box Talks to monthly Lunch & Learns, we’re constantly driving on-the-job training and ongoing learning for continued success. We even leverage the knowledge of community leaders to ensure we’re in touch with the latest demands and needs. Excellence is at the heart of everything we do.


We’re an open book with real-time info and reports.

State-of-the-art technology is used extensively in our day-to-day operation. It helps us (and you) get a feel for the project before we even begin. From installation to planning, we leverage the most advanced technology to make sure we have seamless project management and communication from start to finish. It also helps us enhance every aspect of the project. Through our programs, we can easily track subcontractor bids, deliver updated drawings right to the site, track day-to-day records and inspections, create detailed budget reports, and schedule any updates.

Pre-Construction Services

Stakeholders assemble! 

Precon services (as we call them) give you an opportunity to further develop your concepts. We do this by using the latest technology so you can see your project in a 3D model, rendering or virtual world. This helps you make informed decisions on key items, such as project budget, schedule and phasing, site logistics, and life-cycle costs. River City Construction also works hand-in-hand with design teams to ensure the best outcome for every client on every project. The planning and decisions made before a shovel hits the dirt result in tremendous cost savings, expedited schedules, and enhanced safety on the job site for you. Let’s get started on bringing your vision to life!

Quality Assurance

The RCC Stamp of Approval

Quality assurance isn’t just lip service for River City Construction. We stand behind each project we do and maintain numerous certifications and memberships to provide you with a high level of expertise.

  • RCC is part of the US Army Corp of Engineers Quality Control Program which is a valuable program that assures quality of workmanship.
  • Fifteen team members have earned the distinguished LEED Accredited Professional (AP) designation which follows the nationally accepted benchmark for sustainability and the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings.
  • Twenty-two team members have completed the Certified Healthcare Constructor’s certificate program or the American Society for Healthcare Engineering certificate program – both of which focus on The Joint Commission standards, environmental infection control and other safety measures specific to the healthcare environment.

Plus, we have been recognized with the prestigious American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Steel Erection Certification since 2009. So, while many companies can claim that they provide quality work, River City Construction takes it to the next level with the team and resources in place to exceed our clients’ exacting standards and expectations.
