Founded in 2004, RP Construction is a locally owned construction company in Anchorage, Alaska. Our focus is on high quality works involving both residential and light commercial. Partners Rick Petter and Robbie Cant form the foundation of the company and are intimately involved in all aspects of the work. Together with our in-house crew, we bring a trusted network of professionals, suppliers, structural engineers, and architects to each project. It is a core value that we establish and maintain a close working relationship with our clients. We believe an open line of communication and a collaborative approach consistently allows for successful projects. Our broad scope of experience allows us to work within the modern or traditional aesthetic.



Rick brings an in-depth understanding of the construction industry. Rick started in the electrical trade and has since worked in construction from framing to finish carpentry to building furniture. He has a strong interest in energy efficient building, as well as detail and craft. Key to Rick’s skill set is his ability to navigate complex systems for a successful process and completion of every project, translating complex architectural and structural language, tracking the budget and schedule, and maintaining clear lines of communications between client and crews.



Robbie primarily manages the company’s field operations, supervising our in-house crews and working closely with subcontractors to assure the work achieves our high standards. Robbie thrives on the challenges of complex projects and is constantly striving to raise the bar on quality and efficiency. He has an exceptional ability to prioritize the myriad of details of the construction process. Robbie has over 26 years of experience working in the construction industry in both the United States and United Kingdom. He holds a certificate in advanced carpentry and joinery from City & Guilds of London and completed his 4 year apprenticeship in the UK.
