RALEIGH – The partnership between two of the area’s forefathers of sustainable construction recently celebrated its first year in business. Rufty-Peedin Design Builders was founded in March 2011 by celebrated custom luxury homebuilder Jon Rufty and one of the area’s original commercial design-builders Steven Peedin. In the process of navigating year one, the founders have used a challenging construction environment to advocate for cost efficiencies and benefits of using design-build for commercial construction.
Rufty has a long history of personal service and construction innovation and is the most decorated luxury homebuilder in the Triangle. Peedin was among the area's first to use design-build as a commercial construction management process more than 30 years ago. His vast experience with more than 350 commercial projects has established a lasting legacy on the Triangle landscape for many area businesses and organizations. This first anniversary of Rufty-Peedin Design Builders celebrates two of the area’s most respected industry leaders, united as partners to deliver excellence in the design, engineering and construction of commercial buildings.

Gracie Wetzel fits right in at Rufty-Peedin, wearing her hard hat and showing an early commitment to site safety. It's fun to remember that many of us grow up playing with construction equipment, which symbolizes our passions and dreams for building. We believe this creativity and desire to design and build in our communities carries through into adulthood. We're committed to helping you navigate the process and rekindle that passion for construction, selecting the right site, and then designing and constructing a building that fits your needs. This little darling, Gracie, is the daughter of our good friends the Wetzels... and our top engineering recruit in the year 2028! Read More >>>
