Builders was formed with the intention of producing unique structures
representing the work of outstanding Los Angeles architects and designers.
Founded in 1988 by John Cordic, the work of RJC Builders has been
featured in Architectural Digest and Michael
Webb’s Brave New Houses: Adventures in Southern California Living (Rizzoli, 2003). L. A. Architecture
characterized John as the “architect’s builder” in 2004. Renowned
architects and artists with whom the company has worked include Richard
Meier & Partners,
Rafael Legoretta, James Turrell, and Robert Graham.
RJC Builders specializes in projects that range in size between three
and eight thousand square feet, with costs that range from three to
five hundred dollars per square foot. John personally oversees each
project—a major reason that RJC Builders has not experienced disputes,
claims, or litigation.
All members of the staff graduated from Southern California Institute
of Architecture. John is president of the company and a licensed architect
and contractor. The project manager, Lloyd Parrish, is also a licensed
architect. James Miller, the superintendent, has worked in the construction
industry for over twenty years. In addition, the company has a cadre
of devoted specialty trades-people who contribute their finely honed
talents to each project.
