As a pacesetter in the construction industry, we provide quality-oriented general contracting and construction management services on virtually every type of project, with an emphasis on those markets where our technical expertise and quality excel— life sciences, higher education, technology, healthcare and justice. Other areas of expertise include corporate campuses and office buildings, hospitality, manufacturing, entertainment and gaming, and mixed-use facilities.

Headquartered in San Carlos, Rudolph and Sletten has regional offices in San Francisco, Roseville, Los Angeles, Irvine, and San Diego, California. Our current clients include Hewlett-Packard, Genentech, Kaiser Permanente, Johnson & Johnson, Judicial Council of California, Agilent Technologies, and the UC and CSU University systems.


As with any good Silicon Valley start-up, Rudolph and Sletten started in the family garage. In 1959, Onslow H. "Rudy" Rudolph formed a small contracting company, O.H. Rudolph, General Contractor, based out of his garage in Los Altos, California.
