Our History

In 1976 Kimm A. Richardson founded The Richardson Group, laying a strong foundation for a diversified general contracting firm distinguished by quality, integrity and commitment. The Richardson Group is proactive in finding solutions for our clients that best achieve their goals; this practice has been valuable in establishing solid relationships with our clients. We are 100% client focused and this is reflected in the fact that 90% of our work is awarded by repeat business. We approach each project with a cooperative mindset, working with clients, architects and subcontractors toward the common goal – successful project delivery. Through our technical skill and hands-on construction approach, we anticipate project challenges, develop solutions that meet or exceed our client’s objectives. Our work continues to meet the stringent standards of quality, integrity and commitment set by Mr. Richardson 35 years ago.

Prior to incorporating The Richardson Group in 1976, Mr. Richardson provided Building Design and Drafting services, as Pacific Design and Development, for several Industrial Real Estate Developers throughout Southern California starting in 1973. Mr. Richardson received his degree in Construction Management from Long Beach State.
