Professional development is an essential and differentiating part of STO Building Group.

We invest significantly in our employee’s development in order to provide clients with the highest quality of expertise and service consistency, to enable employees to build a rewarding and meaningful career at our company and to provide us with a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

We supplement our comprehensive in-house professional development programs – STOBG University – with an employee tuition assistance program, as well as certificate and degree programs offered at accredited institutions. Each employee is encouraged to participate in these programs, which is an integral part of our annual performance and career development review.

STO Building Group University core pillars include:

Rotational Project Engineer Program/Management Training (RPE)

STO Building Group’s RPE Program provides entry-level college graduates with backgrounds in architecture, civil engineering, construction management, and interior design exposure to a well-rounded professional experience in construction management. RPE employees are rotated (9 to 12 months) through each of STO Building Group’s four major disciplines: Field Operations, Estimating, Purchasing and Engineering. They are guided through the program by a mentor, as well as receiving training. RPE graduates become superintendents, estimators or engineers, with the benefit of comprehensive experience in each of the key construction disciplines.

The coursework also includes presentation and communications training and time, conflict and stress management, as well as preparation for the U.S. Green Building Council’s Green Associate Exam.

2. Management Development Certificate (MDC)
