Swinerton Builders, a leading commercial construction contractor with offices nationwide, improves our communities with projects throughout California. Established in Bakersfield in 1888, the firm has an incredible 134-year history and is now headquartered in the Bay Area.
The company’s Sacramento office focuses on projects throughout the Central Valley from Bakersfield to the Oregon border, and is an established leader in the higher education, health care, entertainment and tenant improvement markets.
One public-private partnership is Rancho Cordova Mills Crossing Civic Center. The 10-acre site at Folsom Boulevard and Mather Field Road is in pre-development and will soon see multifamily residences, mixed-use buildings and flexible community space. “This transformational and transit-oriented development will catalyze the Folsom corridor in Rancho Cordova and further enhance an already vibrant and economically thriving city,” says Jeff Good, vice president and division manager.
“We feel there’s still a strong market in the civic and institutional space, health care and even some residential, and we look forward to helping to shape the valley’s future.”

Also executed out of the Sacramento office is the renovation and expansion of Tachi Palace Casino Resort in Lemoore. “We’re about halfway through this project, which has provided significant construction job opportunities to a broad range of tradesmen and women,” Good says. “Opportunities are traditionally limited in that area and this gives our Central Valley labor force a chance to work closer to home than they normally would.”
Another notable project recently begun in Sacramento is 1325 J St., a tenant improvement for a federal client. Good notes that the project, a phased refresh of multiple floors in an existing high-rise building, is an example of a downtown tenant investing in their space as part of a long-term plan to keep people working downtown.
“We’re very bullish on the Central Valley in terms of construction opportunities, even with the drumbeat of recession,” Good says. “We feel there’s still a strong market in the civic and institutional space, health care and even some residential, and we look forward to helping to shape the valley’s future.”
