David Somera


As senior superintendent, Dave oversees and manages the safety and day-to-day operations of the jobsite, as well as supervising the schedule of completion. Dave keeps a close eye on his projects from start to finish, maintaining quality control at each stage and acting as the point of contact for architects, engineers, owners and other interested parties. Dave’s approach is both macro and micro, overseeing field personnel and staffing needs as well as material requirements and on-site work, while also ensuring strict adherence to schedule and budget to ensure the final work is delivered as promised—with great results.


With over 30 years’ experience overseeing all phases of multi-million-dollar construction projects, Dave has worked on nearly every subset of construction, including ground-up, infrastructure, tenant improvement, high-end residential, and seismic improvements. Dave began his career as a union carpenter and worked his way up to general superintendent over the years. Dave brings his experience managing high-level projects throughout Northern and Southern California to Rylko.


During his off time, Dave can be found rooting for the San Francisco 49ers and the Golden State Warriors. He rides, builds, and collects motorcycles, and enjoys traveling and spending as much time as possible outdoors with his family in tow.
