In 1980, Orluff Opheikens turned to longtime friend Les Randall, and together they formed Randall and Opheikens Construction Company or R&O Construction.
In an interview in 1993, R&O was asked about their business philosophy, and Orluff answered: “Never miss a deadline. Give the customer maximum service. At R&O Construction we believe our greatest strength is our people — the skilled professionals who must daily meet the demanding standards of our nationally recognized clients. We hire only the best and provide them with a stable work environment in a historically unstable industry, and it shows. We now have an area-wide reputation for consistently meeting customer needs and for a flexible approach to project planning and execution unmatched by any other commercial construction firm in the region.”
R&O also operates successful offices in Las Vegas, Nevada and Salt Lake City, Utah, established to better meet the needs of its regional customers.
