STEVE ROGERS

FOUNDER 8020 BUILDERS

Building is what I love doing. Beginning with an internship in college I have deliberately pursued a career in the industry and have never questioned the choice. The past 25 years have afforded me experience on just about every type of construction and I’ve developed my skillset to one of an industry leader. My path has taken me to integrated models of delivery and given me valuable knowledge about the design and development side of the industry as well. In 2014, I brought this unique set of skills along with an intense desire to build a culture to the new venture of 8020 Builders. I look forward to the challenges new projects bring with confidence that the team we have can meet them successfully.

The focus I bring to 8020 Builders is on our culture. I will always be driven by the prospect of creating great spaces through creative interaction in a team environment. We are creating a company where trust in our people is paramount. This yields a level of creativity in our work that delivers value beyond our client’s expectations.
