Celebrating 25 Years in the San Francisco Bay Area

More than two decades ago, Alten Construction began with humble beginnings and big challenges. This year, the commercial construction company celebrates its 25-year anniversary, marking a milestone that commemorates quality construction projects and service to the California community.

Founded by Bob and Shannon Alten, the Richmond-based local and family-owned business employs more than 100 people – many who have been with the company for more than 15 years. The Altens count the longevity of its employees as one of the company’s biggest accomplishments.

Since its creation, Alten Construction has completed approximately 200 projects. Some of the construction firm’s most-impactful portfolio pieces include the historic Napa County Courthouse, San Francisco Fire Station No. 5, Palo Alto High School’s professional-quality theater, historic Goodman Library, Mission Dolores Park renovation, City of San Rafael Public Safety Center, Menlo-Atherton High School and many others.

“We’re a growing company, but our reputation for quality and high standards in the industry will always stay the same,” says Bob Alten. “We are builders, and we really do take pride in what we build and have a great sense of accomplishment knowing we are leaving a legacy in this wonderful community that we call home. Love what you do, and you will be successful. We would not be here, however, without the hard work, dedication and support of our amazing employees and other essential business partners. We are truly thankful for all of the support.”
