About Us

RPMI was established in 1989 to provide project and construction management consulting to owners, developers and builders in two main areas: Project Management and CPM Scheduling.  Our staff is professional and easy to work with.  This is attested to by the fact that 60% of our projects are repeat clients.

RPMI personnel have been formally educated in construction management and have field construction experience. Our staff is supported by the latest equipment and technology in order to improve the quality and production of schedules, estimates, and other elements of project control.

Our Philosophy

One of RPMI’s key philosophies is to improve the industry by sharing the tools and knowledge learned through our almost 30 years experience. Our toolset has been curated over many years as we’ve worked from the very first steps to final handover of a project.

These tools and knowledge are available on our Resources page; please look them over and feel free to contact us for more information or assistance in your next project.

Ted Ritter has been a Project / Construction Management consultant since 1982. He started out providing CPM scheduling to builders and owners, which naturally evolved into providing expert analysis of delayed projects. In studying failed projects, Ted developed a unique understanding of how procurement of services, preparation and leveraging of contracts, and establishment of formal relationships did not serve the needs of specific projects. This became the foundation of Ritter’s Healthcare Project Management Services: to meet the Owner’s Best Interest through pointed, factual, aggressive, open-book preparation and execution of a comprehensive project plan, designed to prevent failure by setting up all entities for success, and customized to each specific Owner.

Ted co-teaches a course for the American College of Healthcare Executives titled “Managing Healthcare Facility Design and Construction Programs”, has a BS and MS in Construction Management, and is a PMI Project Management Professional.
