PREMIER Design + Build Group Names Two New General Superintendents


January 29, 2020 (Itasca, Ill.) – PREMIER Design + Build Group (“PREMIER”) is pleased to announce that it has promoted two of its team members to the role of General Superintendent. Matt Robson has been named General Superintendent of the firm’s Midwest Division, which is headquartered in the Chicago suburb of Itasca. Chuck Rugila has been named General Superintendent of PREMIER’s Southeast Division in Plantation, Florida.

As General Superintendents, Robson and Rugila will oversee all Superintendents in their respective divisions. They will be responsible for managing field staff and field operations, reinforcing adherence to PREMIER’s safety program, and providing leadership to ensure that all projects meet established schedules and PREMIER’s highest standards. 

Both Robson and Rugila previously served as Senior Superintendents. Robson has more than 30 years in the construction industry and has worked as a master carpenter, crew leader and foreman. Robson has been part of PREMIER’s Midwest team since 2012. He recently completed a 223,703-square-foot build-to-suit cross-dock facility for The Custom Companies in Northlake, Illinois.

“Matt brings a depth of construction experience and a commitment to meeting PREMIER’s strict standards to every project he leads,” said Michael Long, Senior Vice President, Midwest Market Leader for PREMIER. “These leadership qualities keep us at the top of our game in the highly competitive Chicago market,” explained Long.

Rugila joined PREMIER’s Southeast Division in 2016 and also has more than 30 years of construction experience in varied roles. Rugila has served on PREMIER projects nationwide. On the local level in Florida, he is currently supervising construction of the 180,000-square-foot Clark Street Distribution Center in Tampa for Keating Resources and recently completed a 163,000-square-foot speculative industrial facility for client TRX Investments in Hialeah Gardens.

“Our clients in the Miami market have high expectations for the team we bring to each project, whether it’s in the industrial, commercial or retail sector,” according to Omar Lopez, Director of Project Development, Southeast Market Leader for PREMIER. “Chuck has the expertise that clients desire and PREMIER is committed to delivering,” said Lopez.

PREMIER first established a reputation for its work in the industrial sector but has expanded scope in recent years to include a wide variety of project types including commercial, retail, interiors, adaptive reuse, cannabis cultivation and processing, and health and fitness facilities.
