We help our clients achieve their goals.  We build long-term relationships based on reliability, honesty and trust.

“That’s what it means to be a quality builder in America.” -Bart Coulter

Coulter Construction was founded in 1980 to provide innovative general contracting services to the diversified San Francisco Bay area business community. Since that time, we have grown to successfully complete countless quality projects ranging in size from minor office remodels to state-of-the-art educational facilities to contemporary Silicon Valley corporate headquarters.

Coulter Construction, Inc. has from our inception and throughout the past 40 plus years been successful by delivering an exceptional product far exceeding the expectations of the clients we serve.

We have earned long-term relationships with our clients and still count many of our first customers among our closest. These relationships are built on our integrity, honesty, and proven ability to get the job done with full confidence in delivery at highly competitive rates.

 Our senior staff is comprised of long-term seasoned professionals, with an average tenure of better than 15 years, and our junior staff, reflects our priority of hiring the best and investing in their professional growth so we may put that investment to work for our clients.


In early 1980 when Bart Coulter founded Coulter Construction, Inc. he did so with the vision of delivering high quality construction projects well within the tightest of timelines imposed by the ever evolving demands of the Bay Area industrial, technological and bio-scientific markets.

Bart understood the client and their need for market timing and made quality and project completion the main focus for all of the firm’s projects. 

Bart also understood the personal components involved with construction projects and encouraged individual passions, creativity and client/contractor interactions to flourish enhancing the entire experience. Preferring to be judged by quality rather than volume Bart hadn’t set out to be the biggest contractor, and for a time earned the moniker ‘Quiet Construction’ but as word spread of Coulter Construction so did our clients, projects and markets evolving into the firm we are today. It is now close to 10 years since Coulter Construction, Inc. has successfully transitioned into our second generation and the firm’s core values are as strong as ever.
