RICK L. DUMAS
Rick Dumas brings over 30 years of experience as a designer, journeyman builder, construction manager, and developer of diverse residential, religious, civil, and mixed-use projects. Rick discovered his passion for architecture while completing his education under mentor-architect and business woman Sigrid L. Rupp of SLR Architects in Palo Alto. With SLR, he worked on large, high-tech projects during the dot-com era in Silicon Valley for clients such as Apple, Sun Micro Systems (now Oracle), and Raychem (now Tyco). During his downtime, he designed high-end custom residences. With his mentor’s guidance, he went on to form RLD & Associates, where, for over 20 years, he brought his brand of design to residential and church projects throughout the western United States. In 2004, Rick added ‘Developer’ to his resume when he co-founded and managed Bay Mountain Development, LLC in Arizona, developing large residential estate golf course projects.
With such a diverse breadth of experience, Rick has developed a pragmatic approach that ensures a project’s design enhances value and aesthetic and runs on an efficient construction schedule. Born and raised in Oakland, he has strong affiliations with local civic, building and planning officials, and is well-networked throughout the greater United States. He is a member of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) and the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA).
