We sat down with Rob Cruden to learn a bit more about his construction experience and to better understand some of the things he’s looking forward to as he builds his San Diego team

Can you tell me about your professional background?

Early in my career, I worked for a structural engineering firm and spent some time in the field evaluating structural issues and coming up with creative ways to repair failures or expand a building. I found myself wanting to figure out how to build the buildings more than design it, and that naturally lead me into contracting. I also liked the “outside the box” thinking from my engineering background. I think it has given me a unique perspective in the contracting industry to help clients solve problems and create a collaborative environment with my teams.

What experience do you bring to Dome?

I have been working in the local market for over 20 years, and value the relationships I have developed with the trade partners. I have worked on small projects for client accounts and on significant ground-up developments and found the most successful projects were ones with a solid subcontractor base. My local relationships will help Dome create a foothold in the market across all the sectors in which we specialize.

What are you looking forward to most about bringing Dome’s presence to San Diego?

I am excited about the opportunity for our people in a new market and bringing Dome’s culture to San Diego. It’s always a challenge to grow a company into new regions, but we have such talented staff that wants to be here in San Diego. I’m sure we will quickly find our niche locally with the right clients and bring more top talent into the organization.

How do you see the office of San Diego developing in the next 5 years?

I see a great opportunity to have some steady growth in this market with our staff’s diversified background and technical skills. Most importantly, I see a great group of employees bonding through a work environment that stays fun and energetic. There’s a lot of passionate people at Dome, and I’ve always been a passionate builder. We’re looking to bring more people into the company that want to be a part of something unique and build mutually beneficial long term relationships with their coworkers and clients.

What do you like most about the company?

Dome is a company that functions with a high level of integrity and truly cares about its employees and business partners. Dome focuses on the growth and development of their staff and supports an entrepreneurial element to their work, giving you a little more ownership into your work and connecting with your peers.

Finish the sentence: When I’m not working, I’m…

When I’m not working, I’m…trying to be outdoors and being active. I enjoy running, golfing, skiing, and spending time with my wife and kids, ideally on a beach or in the mountains.
