Ryan Meno proves the adage that nice guys DO finish first. Everyone enjoys working with him because he is organized and smart with an even temperament that commands respect in an often stressful environment. Ryan earned a degree in construction management from the University of Washington in 1998. His promise & ability was recognized early with a scholarship from The Associated General Contractors as well as a membership in Sigma Lambda Chi, a national construction honor society.

Over his career, Ryan has gained valuable experience constructing a wide variety of exciting projects; both new construction and renovations, as well as structures of wood, steel, and concrete. Seldom do most people get the opportunity to work with such a likable guy. Ryan’s soft-spoken, even-tempered and methodical approach to his work makes it easy for him to plug into any project team successfully. During his years at Rafn, Ryan has made a rapid ascent in responsibility and project complexity. He has taken on Owner’s Representative, Construction Management and Project Management tasks on projects ranging from highly technical fiber optic switching stations to tricky occupied renovations and from award-winning sustainable affordable housing to high-end country clubs.
