Past & Present
Where we started
It all began in 2000 when Bob Hayter who has been building custom homes and doing renovations in the Kawartha Lakes since 1975 mutually decided to part ways with his longtime partner. Bob, Ryan and Adam who had been working together as the “boys” went through high school and college started planning what would end up being a family owned and operated business serving the Kawartha Lakes and area.
A few key longtime employees were inherited from Bob’s previous business venture and roles for these employees were created and plenty of projects to keep everyone busy, these key members of what is now the “RWH Family” are still working and growing as the business continues expand.
Bob, Ryan and Adam put together the groundwork and key elements to start a quality and service oriented business. An initial logo was created, a business strategy, ground rules for employee standards including dress code, hours of work, cleanliness and courteous interaction with customers.
The RWH is Bob’s initials; this portion of the name was chosen to start a legacy for Bob and to symbolize a family oriented business. The Construction of RWH construction was chosen to show to show strength and ability, setting us apart from a contractor who would only hire other contractors and manage a project from a pickup truck, RWH Construction is an in-house builder with the skill and workforce to complete a project from the start to finish.
RWH’s first major project was a custom home in Uxbridge, located out of town on a beautiful acreage lot, the house of approximately 3000 sf was custom designed from top to bottom and was built by RWH crews. Bob, Ryan, Adam and key employees were hands-on building this home and have remained close to the owners taking care of any service required.
RWH has always had a vision to grow into a full service firm, designing, supplying, managing and building. With this passion and drive we have invested into our company and our employees to grow a healthy, reputable, customer satisfaction and service oriented business. We are attracted to challenging projects, we push for more and as we do this we have become accustomed to these challenges and have taken them on as the norm but we continue to be driven towards new challenging designs, builds, locations etc.
“Building excellence with superior attention to detail” was our initial motto and we continue to stand by it.
