  • Devcon Construction, Inc. | About

    ABOUT HISTORY CULTURE DESIGN AWARDS MANAGEMENT More ABOUT An innovative and creative product of its Silicon Valley roots, Devcon Construction, Inc. utilizes its general contracting experience and design/build capabilities to meet the needs of each unique project. Ranked as the largest general contractor in Silicon Valley for the majority of the past two decades, this veteran-owned company maintains a notable regional presence in the West. Our team handles projects of all sizes and types for a wide range of owners, developers and end users. #1 in the Silicon Valley for the last 21 years! OUR MISSION To form a team dedicated to providing exceptional customer service. We aim to provide a professional approach to constructing exceptional quality projects which meet established budgeting and scheduling goals. BUSINESS APPROACH We are a relationship oriented company where customers are top priority. We are dedicated to making their construction experience a successful one. We are known for providing outstanding quality, meeting time commitments and being budget oriented. TEAM COMMITMENT Our employees are our most valuable asset and we will continue to invest in them. We strive to provide competitive wages, quality medical and dental plans, pension and profit sharing and state-of-the-art technology systems and training. We want each employee to be proud to be a member of the Devcon Team. BUILD As a respected construction firm, Devcon has partnered with many distinguished developers, owners, architects and tenants. We bring innovative construction expertise built on 45 years of successful business practices and projects. It is our goal to partner with accomplished, innovative consultants and experienced, responsive trade partners in order to maintain excellence throughout our projects. As the Bay Area leader in design/build, our services support all integrated aspects of design and construction, eliminating cost overruns and schedule delays without compromising design intent. We are uniquely experienced in many markets such as corporate campuses, educational institutions, housing, civic and sports centers. This diverse experience empowers Devcon to be a trusted partner in all aspects of shell and tenant improvement construction. Our construction teams in the field are comprised of proven, dedicated employees whose knowledge is informed by both the long-time construction experience here at Devcon and additional comprehensive, ongoing training in the areas of safety, technology, building systems, code compliance, cost engineering and sustainability. At Devcon, we consistently exceed expectations by delivering completed projects that respond to client requirements, adapting to changing work environments, incorporating sustainable materials and technologies, and providing quality structures that perform long after the construction is completed. Building Services: ​ Design-Build - A unique method of project delivery in which the architect and contractor act as a design-build team and are under the same single contract to the client. This approach creates a unified work flow from conceptual design to construction completion. General Contracting - We facilitate the overall coordination and oversight of our projects by orchestrating the construction site, the management of subcontractors and trades, and the communication between all involved disciplines and parties throughout the entire project timeline. BIM - Building Information Modeling refers to the process by which designers create a 3D digital representation of both physical and functional characteristics in a space using various tools and technologies. Devcon generally uses BIM to coordinate between multiple building disciplines. Estimating - Ultimately, the estimating process allows Devcon to establish a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) that we will then use to create a detailed cash flow forecast and construction schedule. Infrastructure - Our construction teams in the field are comprised of proven, dedicated, responsive employees whose knowledge represents not only long-time service here at Devcon, but comprehensive, ongoing training in the areas of safety, technology, building systems and code compliance. Pre-construction - In the early planning stages of a project, our design and construction departments will work with the client to develop drawings, budgets, and schedules while providing insight into the contributing variables such as materials and construction methods. Project Closeout - This process occurs during the last stage in the construction project lifecycle. During this process, the contractor must demonstrate that the project meets its completion criteria and that all project documentation is approved and tracked. Project closeout also includes the final closure of all contracts and financial packages. Tenant Improvement - These improvements are required when an owner or developer agrees to provide interior improvements to their structure as a lease agreement with the tenant. These customized improvements are often very specific to the tenants needs. PERFORM Our employees perform, our processes perform, and our buildings perform. The challenge in today’s construction industry is to be able to maintain and optimize strong performance levels through all phases of design and construction. We invest in innovative technology to support the management and coordination processes throughout each project. The contemporary software and organizational systems allows for the development of collaborative construction tools that include Building Information Modeling (BIM) and project review software Navisworks. Integrated processes and responsive solutions ensure that unexpected in-field coordination and schedule delays are avoided. These systems continue to perform for our clients, providing them with programs that monitor building energy consumption and operational costs at project completion, ensuring that buildings perform at optimum levels throughout their life cycle. DESIGN Our internal design team offers limitless resources and experience for developers, owners and architectural firms. Having an in-house design team allows us to deliver a synchronized communication style with consultants and clients alike throughout all phases of design and construction in an otherwise somewhat fragmented process. Revit and advanced rendering software have provided a collaborative platform for communicating knowledgeably and efficiently with our architectural consultant and trade partners through 3-dimensional visualizations and graphic communication. By partnering internally, we also become a resource for our own construction teams and our construction teams become a resource for our design team, each providing insight into questions concerning construction details and specifications. We take the concept of team very seriously at Devcon, by encouraging strong performance by both our design and construction departments, whether they are supporting a complete design-build model or an integrated project delivery method. SUSTAIN Education and integration are key to any design and construction firm. They are the two most important components of innovative sustainable building construction. Our process and practices are derived from harnessing the power of information from experienced consultants and providing the education to our own internal teams on innovational developments and requirements that are continually shaping the sustainable construction industry. We pride ourselves on the completion of over 100 LEED projects and having over 50 LEED professionals within our design and construction groups. At Devcon, we continue to incorporate and seek alternative sustainable building processes and practices, ensuring that our buildings not only meet our client’s current needs but the needs of the future. FINANCES Solid financial performance and a strong cash position have always been hallmarks of Devcon Construction, Inc., a privately held company. In addition to meeting the procurement needs of projects large and small, Devcon’s commitment to customers depends on our strong relationships with the most talented and efficient subcontractors, suppliers and employees. We prioritize professional alignment with all of our subcontractors so that we can position ourselves to benefit all involved parties in quality, sustainability, and finance. ​ We strive to cultivate appropriate business transparency and make information available to all our partners in order to maintain open communication.

  • Devcon Construction, Inc. | History

    ABOUT HISTORY CULTURE DESIGN AWARDS MANAGEMENT More HISTORY History Devcon Construction, Inc. began as the ambitious dream of a group of valley entrepreneurs. From it’s origins as a developer-contractor in 1976, Devcon’s innovation, growth and expertise have supported many leading companies in Silicon Valley. ​ ​ The Value of Design-Build After developing a series of concrete tilt-ups for a variety of high-tech clients, the founders of Devcon brought in Gary Filizetti as vice president of construction in 1980 to manage the transition of Devcon into a design-build general contractor. The inclusion of a strong architectural team from those early days has distinguished Devcon as a fast-moving, efficient construction firm with the skills and knowledge to integrate its efforts seamlessly with those of developers, owners, independent architects, subcontractors and end users. ​ In the mid-1980s, as Bay Area land development exploded in response to the rising tech industry the company earned a reputation for excellent structural steel mid-rise and high-rise shells in Silicon Valley, along the peninsula, in the East Bay and in San Francisco. This reputation allowed us to expand our expertise into interiors, landscaping, and parking throughout our early years. During the high-tech downturn of the early 1990s, Devcon responded to the changing times and continued to expand it’s portfolio of residential, multi-family, retail and mixed use projects. Largest General Contractor in Silicon Valley Developers and end-users have come to rely on Devcon as a contractor that pioneers new design and construction challenges, so the booming 1990s saw Devcon become the largest general contractor in Silicon Valley. The company expanded its project portfolio to include hotels, sports stadiums, schools, shopping centers, corporate campuses, infrastructure and robust data centers. All of these market opportunities for expansion have grown into a diverse project portfolio which we still aim to further expand through the immense growth of the West. ​ ​ Industry Leader The innovative energy-saving techniques used in designing data centers have led Devcon to be an early champion of green building and sustainable development. Today, Devcon can boast of a long list of projects with silver, gold and platinum certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, along with more than 50 LEED-trained office and field staff members. Leveraging its roots in technology, Devcon has enthusiastically led the industry in lean construction techniques by implementing integrated project delivery and Building Information Modeling (BIM). We aim to always focus on cost minimization, meet scheduling goals, and balance lifetime project values. These established goals increase both material and economic sustainability which is an ultimate goal for both the company and our clients. ​ Diverse Portfolio The first decades of the 21st Century have seen Devcon become a West Coast regional design-build contractor with projects in California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Texas and Florida. These projects range in individual value from tens of millions to billions. Devcon continues to be the go-to contractor for landmark and challenging projects like moving an existing five-story hotel, building the first lighthouse on the West Coast in the last 50 years, a major university art museum, a five-star hotel on the edge of Monterey Bay, San Jose City Hall and Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers.

We aspire to constantly improve our services and aim to partner with those who will encourage and foster that growth as well. These partnerships are essential in moving our construction processes and products toward both physical and economical sustainability. ​ In addition to our outward partnerships, we aim to make internal partnerships with each of Devcon's employees. Devcon offers profit sharing benefits to all of our employees to ensure that employees are cared for financially while also giving each team member a sense of ownership in the company.
