Randy Miller is a third-generation builder who started his building career crawling around job sites in diapers. Miller observed the buildings trades before studying mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley while working in project engineering positions for first-tier general contractors in both Northern and Southern California during the summers. After a BS in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley, Miller attended graduate school at Stanford University where he completed an MS in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in construction engineering and management.

After graduation, armed with two engineering degrees, Miller believed that his education was incomplete without experience on large projects. To gain this necessary experience, Miller accepted a job as an apprentice carpenter with a major concrete subcontractor in Los Angeles. Miller spent the next year on a concrete-forming crew gaining invaluable experience learning how buildings are actually built in practice. From there, Miller rotated through each of the key operating areas of a construction business; cost estimating, supervision, and project management.

Now ready to begin, Miller starting his building career as a general contractor. Projects and success came in a diverse range of project types including complex research facilities, multi-family housing projects, commercial structures, and institutional facilities, as did acclaim for the award-winning UCLA Medical Building in Santa Monica. Miller relocated his focus to Northern California to Bay Area projects and has formed the company you see today. Miller has completions and a pipeline of projects whose total value is well in excess of a billion dollars.

Miller holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley 2002 and a master’s degree in construction engineering and management from Stanford University 2003. Miller is a licensed professional engineer in the State of California, is a licensed general building contractor, general engineering contractor, fire sprinkler contractor, and manufactured building contractor.
