Director, Construction

Ron Dunn is a Director of Construction for Progress Carolina, with more than 25 years of experience working at every level and phase of design, construction, and development. His experience in the industry started right after college when he packed his entire life into a truck and drove cross-country to Colorado. The day after arriving, he got a job with one of our country’s top ten multi-family builders!

Since then, Ron has gained extensive experience in surveying, civil engineering, structural engineering, and multi-family construction management. He delivered first-class multi-family as well as student housing projects directly for respected developer-builders in Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and even in his hometown of Greenville, North Carolina.

With an impressive project list to his credit, Ron has proven his keen eye, thorough understanding, and masterful ability in implementing the detailed requirements necessary to bring your next project to successful completion. He delivered many quality communities on our behalf before he joined the Progress Carolina team in 2009.

In his role with Progress, Ron is responsible for the development, management, administration, and delivery of multi-family communities from conception through release to asset management upon substantial completion.

His project-specific work responsibilities include:

  • Design development and management
  • Preconstruction and permitting
  • Estimating
  • Project scheduling
  • Purchasing
  • Buyout
  • Contract administration
  • Submittal and request for information tracking
  • Document control
  • Field operations management

Ron earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management from East Carolina University and an Associate of Applied Science degree from Pitt Community College in Architectural Drafting Technology.

When he’s not building amazing apartment communities, Ron brings new meaning to the term outdoorsman with his love of duck hunting, saltwater fishing and building custom inshore fishing rods. He’s got a soft spot for his young son, John Foster, and can occasionally be found on the golf course.
