From there, we oversee permitting, setting up maintenance plans, data and communication lines. Last, we manage completion and post-completion support. Robert High Development works start to finish and beyond to make its clients successful. We’re honored that 95% of our clients are repeat customers.

Robert High and his team are a delight to work with. They have built numerous properties for
us in the Carolinas and Virginia. Robert has a knack for figuring out how to fit an efficient and
consumer-friendly storage facility on most any piece of property. Once built, they are
conscientious about staying after the inevitable issues that come up after construction. I
cannot say enough good things about RHD.

Robert High and his team designed and built two facilities as well as an addition
for Elite Storage. Robert’s dedication to the self storage industry is second to none.
Robert was always very approachable and more than willing
to offer any and all suggestions through the process. Toni was very knowledgeable
and responsive to any and all matters associated with the project. Elite Storage would
highly recommend Robert High Development for any and all things associated with
self storage! Thank you Robert and Toni for the job you did for us!

Robert High and his team designed and built us 50,000 ft.² of rentable space here in Greensboro North Carolina and I am extremely pleased with him and his work!
I consider myself to be very blessed to have found Robert High in the early stage of building my first self-storage project. I didn’t really know what I was doing but he led me every step of the way.
He was very helpful with the site planning as well as the building design and layout. My engineer noted that his input on the site plan saved me quite a bit of construction money.
We had record rainfall here in 2018 so, therefore, we had a lot of issues with wet soils and bio-pond conversion. Robert was an absolute Rock Star working to solve all the weather related issues without blowing up my budget.
I highly recommend Robert High! He is a storehouse of knowledge in the self storage industry. He is truly is a kind and honest gentleman!
p.s. He’s working on two more projects for me now 🙂

Brinson & Sons has been working with Robert High Development from day 1. It has been really neat watching RHD grow into a very large successful development company over the many years. We have worked with many mini storage developers over the years and I would say RHD understands the ins and outs of mini storage facilities better than anyone. RHD always strives to give the customer a good product in a timely manner. We currently are working with RHD in four states now. The facilities we are doing range from small 20,000 sq ft single story buildings up to 3 – 5 story buildings over 150,000 sq ft. It has always been a pleasure working with Robert and his employees in our efforts to give their customers a product to be proud of.

– Greg Brinson, President Brinson & Sons Heating & Air Inc.

Robert High Development, with decades of hard work and experience, consistently builds facilities that meet the needs and preferences of self-storage customers utilizing designs, means, and methods that focus on lower overall cost of construction and long-term operating costs for owners and operators. We are very fortunate to have a customer with such deep experience and the ability to see the entire picture through zoning, site planning, construction, final building inspections, and ongoing operations. Robert High Development takes pride in treating their vendors and customers alike with the highest level of respect. In today’s world it’s rare to find businesses that understand the value and goals that can be accomplished by forming partnerships and providing a quality product in a safe, timely manner. In addition, Robert High Development works tirelessly to inform and lobby for practical application, amendments, and exceptions to fire, building, and energy codes that are written and implemented without consideration of the real-world use of self-storage facilities. We are very proud and fortunate to work with the highly capable team at Robert High Development.

We look forward to many more years of growing this partnership.

We’ve been doing work with Robert for close to 15 years. He’s one of the more proactive GC’s we work with and believes that his projects success is dependent on a complete team effort. Twice a year, Robert gathers every trade/sub that works on his projects, for a “meeting of the minds”. Each and every upcoming project is discussed. Concerns and “better practices” are presented with everyone in the room and it helps build a team environment. Potential pitfalls and wasted time are often avoided by this exercise. This not only helps Robert and his group but it’s a tremendous help to all the subs. The end results of these meetings are faster, less expensive and better built self storage projects for the developer, which is why Robert High is one of the best GC’s in the Storage industry.
