"Working with WG Construction on our $5M TI project was a completely positive experience. WG staff effectively and professionally managed the collaboration between engineering, architecture, their subs, our subs, and we ended up on time and on budget."
"I especially want to thank Dave Anderson who did an outstanding job making sure our needs were met and we were able to move in on time. Out of my many years of moving warehouses and working with contractors, this by far was the most professional and expeditious project I have dealt with."

A little history...
In 1980 Scott Essary and Dave Anderson started their careers as carpenters at Scott's parents' San Jose construction company, Young America Builders. They worked at the family business until its doors closed in 1990. At its peak the company employed 300 carpenters and provided commercial and residential construction services. In the late 1970's Dave studied architecture which led the company to build twelve spec homes in Hollister, all of which Dave designed. Both men gained significant construction knowledge and field skills through the decade and more importantly, the skills needed to create and sustain their own business.
In 1994, after a four year stint at another company, the team started their own business in the Willow Glen area of San Jose, giving way to the name Willow Glen Construction. The family business values and commitment to client relationships and employees that were fostered at Young America Builders carry on at WG Construction. WG Construction field crews and office staff strive for excellence in all aspects of the business. Everyone collectively takes pride in the quality workmanship and customer service we provide to all of our clients.
