ROBERTO "Lupillo" ORTEGA MENA

Safety Monitor/Assistant Superintendent

*Certified/Completed 30-Hour OSHA Hazard  Recognition Training for the Construction Industry Course

*Certified Forklift Operator

*CPR/First Aid Certified


Born and raised in Mexico City, Roberto came to Arizona at the age of 14. In both places he worked in construction - building houses, doing demo and also working in a/c, trim and roofing. Here in Arizona, Roberto has over 11 years experience in framing both residential/tract and custom homes. He started as a laborer, was promoted to carpenter and then became a foreman, managing 6-8 guys at a time.  In his safety role, Roberto is looking to prevent accidents by assisting employees with safety issues and teaching them about framing, working with tools, etc., all of which he hopes will make their jobs easier and safer. 





We have a building presence in most major regions of Arizona and look forward to expanding to new markets in the state as well as out of state.
