Rob Phillips has worked primarily in the multi-family, residential, commercial and acquisition & development construction industries for the past 16 years. His experience began when he was hired as a Project Foreman with Corvallis, OR based construction company to oversee a 14 unit multi-million dollar subdivision. Mr. Phillips was responsible for the scheduling and coordination all of the subcontractors, scheduling the city/county inspections, and making sure the project was on track to be completed on time.
In 2003, Mr. Phillips decided to expand his construction knowledge and learn the lending side of construction. He was independently hired to perform the construction inspections for a Northwest construction lender. He quickly found a large demand for third party construction monitoring and formed Oregon Inspection Company, which specialized in residential, multi-family, A&D and commercial construction progress inspections. Mr. Phillips successfully grew Oregon Inspection Company to over 40 accounts with 26 independent inspectors performing over 1,200 monthly inspections in OR, WA, CA, CO, and ID. While at Oregon Inspection Company, Mr. Phillips’ duties included: scheduling all of the multi-state inspections, billing, and performing many of the Oregon & SW Washington inspections. Mr. Phillips then partnered with Bo Oswald in late 2007 to form Northwest Monitoring. This partnership allowed the firm to provide comprehensive Residential, Commercial, Due Diligence and Owners Representation services under the single firm. As a Principal at Northwest Monitoring, Mr. Phillips currently manages, reviews and coordinates all commercial and residential project reviews, monthly draw inspections and field service inspections.
