David Reed


David has always enjoyed building things.  It all began with his dad and grandfather working on small projects in high school.  When he graduated high school, he followed his passion in construction and earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Construction Management. He started in the pre-engineered metal building industry in 1988 as a draftsman/detailer with Varco Pruden metal buildings.  David was fortunate to work for some very good companies in his career  and held a variety  of positions for each.  In 2016, he became an owner and part of the RBD Construction Team.  One year later we added Hale Steel to our Team.  "I am very excited to see what the future holds for this company".
