Lessons from the Past
Starting in the early 90’s, Inclign founder Rich Denny learned his trade framing for High Country Contractors & Developers out of Renton WA. Soon he was framing custom homes for prominent figures in the Seattle area, then framing large apartment complexes. This lead to remodeling homes & multi-family remediation work. Eventually the HCCD adventure presented the opportunity to superintend a number of large multi-family rehabilitations and new apartment construction. Along the way a passion grew to simplify the construction process for project owners.
