Thirty years ago, Joseph H. Ryan knew he wanted more flexibility, more decision-making, and more time for his family and community. These were the powerful forces that guided Joe’s vision and developed the foundation for Oppidan. Now, as we celebrate on our 30th anniversary, we reflect on how Joe made his dream a reality that continues to positively touch the lives of so many.

Oppidan is the Latin word for “investing in your city,” and that’s exactly what we do every day. We don’t just construct buildings. We build towns where residents can create a loving community. We create value, allowing all to thrive.

The past 30 years has taught us so much. Throughout this time, we’ve learned from our mistakes, lauded our wins and strengthened our bonds between our employees, clients and partners. Moreover, we continue to remember our humble roots and never lose sight of our engrained desire to invest in our cities.

We invite you along to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
