who we are
Eric Rauser AIA
Eric began his construction career as a laborer in the early 1990s, while on summer breaks from architecture school at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He practiced architecture before returning to construction in 2008. Eric advocates for close coordination between architects and builders, a movement now producing the most successful residential projects in Austin. He is honored to have been elected AIA Austin Chapter President for 2020. Shaping an environment where everyone can do their best work is what drives him. That and coffee. Lots of coffee.
Rebekah’s attention to detail and skill for creating organizational systems ensure that Rauser Construction runs smoothly and efficiently. From estimating to job costing, she tracks every project from beginning to end. Rebekah is a native Texan and holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. To nourish her artistic drive, she creates public works of art and clothing based on militaria from around the world. She also loves a good pun.
brett greig AIA
Brett transitioned to homebuilding in 2014, after nearly a decade as a practicing architect. Her background makes her especially suited to execute complex details and translate design into reality. But for Brett the most rewarding aspect of project management is the relationships — serving as the liaison between homeowner, architect, and trades and ensuring that communication flows clearly between all three. Brett’s loves include a well-curated bookshelf, her non-stop twin daughters, and her patient, patient husband — though not necessarily in that order.
Roberto cipriano aia, leed ap
Roberto has over 25 years of experience in high-end residential design and construction. After a lengthy career as an architect working for some of the country's most prominent families, Roberto left New York City in search of new adventures and challenges. He spent a year in rural Borneo designing and kicking off construction of a low-resource medical clinic before returning to Austin in 2012 to focus on building. Roberto maintains a small (but serious!) wood shop where he builds acoustic guitars and furniture. When not working, Roberto enjoys traveling with his wife and riding bikes with his dog, Woody.
