Rockford Construction

The Rockford History

Rockford Construction was founded in 2009 as a Subsidiary company to Rockford Homes. Rockford Homes was formed in 1985 and remains a privately held, family-owned local business. Rockford Homes specializes in Single-Family and Condominium Home Building. Through 35+ years of robust and steady growth, Rockford has become a household name as one of Central Ohio’s top home builders. Founded by Robert E. Yoakam, Sr., Rockford’s business ventures include production and custom single-family home building, multifamily construction, land development, multi-unit condominiums, low-income housing, office construction, and general contracting.

Our Goal to be the Best General Contractor in Central Ohio

When we decided to enter the construction industry, we knew we could be the best general contractor in Central Ohio based on our construction expertise and commitment to customer satisfaction. Branching from our parent company, Rockford Homes, Rockford Construction was created to specialize in the multifamily residential construction niche.

At Rockford Construction, our mission is to fulfill the customers’ wants and needs beyond standard expectations. Because Rockford Construction remains a privately held, family-owned, local company, Rockford Construction has the flexibility to make business decisions locally and respond to customer needs quickly. Our company is here for you, and with our expert leadership and customer-centric care, Rockford Construction can successfully serve you and all your construction needs.

Combining Brand Name Products and Materials with National Buying Power

Rockford builds and sells over 25 home plans in over 20 single-family and condominium communities.

Rockford Construction’s general contracting experience includes over 70 projects with over 6,000 units. These projects range from new apartments and condominiums for other developers, commercial construction and tenant improvements, plus the conversion of downtown office buildings and warehouse buildings. With this experience, Rockford Construction has assisted its development partners in value engineering each project to deliver a lower-cost product, paying attention to the owners’ long-term maintenance and operating cost.
