Our History

Robert R. Cooper started as a masonry contractor in 1956 building fireplaces, block buildings and dairies in Escondido, California. By 1979, Robert’s reputation for quality and integrity was well established, providing his business the opportunity to expand into building residential neighborhoods in Oregon, dairies in Idaho, and subdivisions and shopping centers in California.

In 1977 Robert moved the company to Idaho, joining forces with his eldest son Brian, an experienced contractor in his own right. Growth continued and soon they were building commercial and residential projects throughout the Treasure Valley and Oregon. In 2005, Robert retired leaving the company’s leadership in Brian’s capable hands. In the same year, Brian’s sons, Derek and Zach, joined RRC Contractors continuing the family legacy. By 2010, Derek’s business skills, customer focus and lifelong construction experience earned him the position of president. Then in 2015, Derek partnered with Art Stevens who brought with him more than thirty years of success in the construction industry and corporate leadership. Art shares the heart of RRC: knowledge, quality and integrity. RRC Contractors is proud to have served its community for sixty years. We develop relationships with clients for the long term.
