Richard and Rice Company Story
From its earliest beginnings in December 2004, it was clear that Richard & Rice Construction was no ordinary company. Gaetan Richard & Murray Rice’s goal was to become the best in the industry. R&R has not only become a significant industry force, but they are also setting the standard for excellence in the construction industry throughout the State of Florida.
The owners of R&R have made it their business to surround themselves with the best talent that the industry has to offer. They have worked diligently to increase their market share and now stand as one of the largest, best managed and well positioned shell contractors in Florida, offering a full spectrum of services in construction management and focusing on foundations, masonry and carpentry.
Richard and Rice have nearly 40 years of combined leadership experience, running some of the most successful General Contracting companies in Florida. Their time at the helm has earned them respect from customers as well as loyal employees and associates. With the experience gained throughout the years, R&R plans to continue to expand into all remaining markets in the state, while increasing and strengthening their customer relationships. Their client list has grown to include Pulte Group, D.R. Horton, Lennar Homes, Standard Homes, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison, Beazer Homes, K. Hovnanian, David Weekley, Kolter Homes, Minto Homes, Mattamy Homes, Centerline Homes, WCI Communities and many other regional custom builders and General Contractors.
