Since 1989 Thompson Builders has successfully completed over 200 major projects in Northern California totaling over $2 Billion in contract value.  We have experience building large scale commercial construction projects across all markets using all project delivery models.  Our deep and diverse experience lends us a versatility that empowers us to tackle any project you put before us. 

We are more than just a general contractor; we are true builders because we self-perform several foundational trades: rough & finish carpentry, concrete and civil work such as grading, paving and utilities.  This provides a huge competitive edge as we are able to pass the resulting cost savings along to our clients.  

Many of our projects have won awards and are recognized as Northern California icons, including the Yerba Buena Island SF-Oakland Bay Bridge footings, Manteca’s Big League Dreams Sports Park, San Jose’s Happy Hollow Zoo, San Francisco’s Cadillac Hotel, 72 Townsend, and Chinatown YMCA.

On average, Thompson Builders self-performs roughly 35% of the total work on all projects. 


Thompson Builders is a “true builder,” meaning we self-perform concrete formwork, concrete placement, wood framing, rough and finish carpentry with our own forces.  This allows us to pass the cost savings along to our clients and grants us maximize control over schedule, craftsmanship and budget.
