San Diego, California

Southern California construction operations are based out of San Diego, Burbank, and San Pedro.

The beauty of San Diego is evident – the beaches, growing urban landscape, majestic natural environment; and the artistic and cultural experiences that await—it’s a California dream where Gilbane Building Company has constructed and managed a plethora of projects. As builders and construction managers, we are grateful to have contributed to this Southern California destination by delivering quality projects since 1978.

We Bring More to San Diego

We know San Diego – we have been here for more than three decades and continue to grow our professional experience in both the public and private sector realms.  We understand the local climate and because of this, we’ve cultivated great relationships with local governmental agencies through our many years of experience. These relationships enable us to streamline most of our projects to meet the needs of our clients – including expedited schedules and cost restrictions.  Our client list includes:

We pride ourselves in being a pioneer in alternative delivery methods that are widely used today such as Construction Management and Construction Management at Risk, which Gilbane first utilized nearly 50 years ago and which, today, is our firm’s preferred method of delivery.  We continue to promote a variety of construction delivery methods for our clients that allow for flexibility and collaboration at all levels including design-build, lease-leaseback and general contracting services. We serve all major public and private markets including:
