Who We Are . . .

rgm-home-who-we-areRGM KRAMER specializes in managing the design and construction of public schools, Community Colleges, Municipalities and City and County facilities.

Beginning in 1987 as a general contractor building both public and private facilities, we evolved into a construction planning and management consulting firm with a specialty in public school planning and construction. Since 1993 we have largely focused our talents toward K-12 agency construction management.

Our 31 years of “in the trenches” experience as a general contractor has given us the extensive construction expertise that sets us apart in our agency role serving our public clients.

RGM KRAMER possesses a wealth of experience working with all school facility agencies including the Division of the State Architect (DSA), the California Department of Education (CDE), the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC), as well as extensive knowledge with the Public Contract Code, Education Code and the California Building Code.

What We Do . . .

rgm-home-what-we-do

RGM KRAMER developed its reputation as an accomplished General Contracting and Construction Management firm in the San Francisco bay area.

We offer a methodical “hands on” approach to the planning and construction of school facilities, born from our experience actually building the schools. Additionally, we nurtured our understanding of the nuances of public school operations, school boards and communities which makes us very effective at building facilities on occupied schools.

RGM KRAMER is capable of managing both new construction and modernization programs of varying types and complexities. RGM KRAMER has facilitated numerous project delivery methods and are skilled at managing Lease-Leaseback, Multi-Prime, Design-Build, and CM-At Risk, programs, as well as traditional agency representation.

RGM KRAMER will guide you through the Pre-Construction, Construction and Post-Construction phases of your project with the skills and proficiency necessary to ensure complete success.

Where We Work . . .

RGM KRAMER’s main office is located in Concord with regional offices in San Jose and Santa Rosa. We provide a wide menu of program, planning and management services to clients throughout Northern California.

It will perceive itself as RGM’s only client because of the firm’s responsiveness and commitment. Most importantly, it will succeed in its facility development goals regardless of the size of its projects or the scope of the work.”

Kenneth J. Ranella, Superintendent, MPCS, Menlo Park City School District
“Rick Kramer and the KPDC team are by far one of the most world class organizations I have ever worked with.  The integrity in which they engage in their work, swiftness in problem resolution, and timeliness in delivering beautiful projects on time and within budget cannot be surpassed.  This is a great firm to work with personally and professionally.”
Leslie Paulides, CPA—Assistant Superintendent/CBO (formerly), Los Gatos Union School District

(CLIENT SINCE 1993)
“RGM has worked with the Antioch Unified School District for the past 15 years and has successfully completed the construction project management of one comprehensive high school, two middle schools, four elementary schools, one charter school, one adult education school, nine modernization projects and over 60 portable classroom additions throughout the District.”

Timothy R. Forrester, Director of Facilities and Technology, AUSD, Antioch Unified School District

(CLIENT SINCE 2002)
“They set the standard very high and continually exceed it – whether presenting at Board Meetings or wading through a flood to clear a storm drain.”

Michael S. Roth, Superintendent, JSUSD, John Swett Unified School District
“Rick Kramer’s ability to work through difficult situations and with a variety of people was instrumental in resolving our construction problems.  He was able to provide effective problem solving skills that ultimately moved the projects forward in a timely manner.  I would highly recommend utilizing Rick’s knowledge and expertise for any school facility project.”
Sherree Brown, Assistant Superintendent, (formerly), Soquel School District

(CLIENT SINCE 2006)
“Many school construction programs require detailed and specialized attention to matching state funds and other state funding programs which are not immediately useable without the major focal attention of a variety of consultants. RGM has the knowledge and consulting base necessary to help a district be successful in finding and utilizing these resources.”

Dr. Alan Newell, Superintendent, RDUSD, River Delta Unified School District

(CLIENT SINCE 1996)
“RGM has served a somewhat unique function with our district by taking on the accounting function for our bond and state fund money as we moved through the building process. This has been a valuable service to our district, which does not have the staff to stay on top of all the requirements, reporting guidelines, and changes coming out of Sacramento.”

David R. Wheeler, Superintendent, WSCUHSD, West Sonoma County Union High School District
“I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Kramer Project Development Company, Inc. to take on the load and responsibilities of District construction projects. Rick is truly a professional in all services he offers. His integrity is outstanding. On top of all this, he’s really a nice guy!.”
Julie Kessler, Assistant Superintendent/CBO, Jefferson Elementary School District

(CLIENT SINCE 1995
“Our most recent project was successfully completed on a multi-prime basis with about 20 contractors. Greg and the RGM Team kept the contractors working with very few interruptions along the way. Scheduling the contractors and keeping their submittals, invoicing, and other paperwork flowing was a smooth process.”

Timothy Rahill, Assistant Superintendent, Administrative Services, MUSD, Martinez Unified School District

David J. Cappucini, Director of Business Services, BUSD, Benicia Unified School District
“Kramer Project Development managed four projects simultaneously for Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District.  The projects were on time and on budget.

Tom Woodruff PhD., Assistant Superintendent / CBO, (formerly) Los Gatos, Saratoga Union High School District
