Founder Craig Beckner & Beckner Contracting

Clients tell us they hire General Contractor Craig Beckner for his attention to detail, integrity, and desire to be of service. As our chief problem solver, clients say they feel heard and attended to.

Craig discovered a passion for building when he and his father constructed a dining room addition and heavy-weather Pelican sailboat. Joining the construction industry after university, Craig earned his stripes working on San Francisco high-rises, Apple’s Cupertino campus, Neiman Marcus, the Palace Hotel’s Garden Court, Oracle, and the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).

Craig transitioned into construction project management with Moor & South Pier (39) Management Company and Swinerton Management & Consulting Company. He later founded his own firm, Beckner Contracting & Management, Inc., remodeling, renovating, and restoring homes and work places throughout the East Bay and San Francisco.

A masterful general contractor is like a music conductor: considers every aspect of the project; guides the team; creates a harmonic experience; and brings the vision to life.
