Here are testimonials from a few of our clients. Please contact us for additional references. 


"Working with Cahill ...has been among my most pleasing experiences. Cahill demonstrated throughout the project that they were cooperative and readily willing to collaborate with all team members to solve any and all issues as they arose as well as working pro-actively to identify issues before they arose. Cahill worked diligently to bring the project back on schedule when unforeseen site conditions during excavation created significant delays to the critical path. ...Subsequently, they were able to mitigate the effect of this delay and were able to complete the building before the start of the fall semester."

Steve Bowers, Construction Manager - Chapiter Construction Services

"We appreciate Cahill’s dedication and their staff’s understanding of Mercy’s mission to provide affordable housing to lower income households. ...From the early stages of preconstruction, Cahill was tremendously helpful in providing updated cost information, working with the design team to explore value engineering alternatives, and coordinating the design-build subcontractors. ...It is without reservation that I recommend Cahill Contractors... and look forward to future opportunities to work with this outstanding organization."

Jane Graf, Former President - Mercy Housing California

"Late in the design phase we brought Cahill on board to help us with constructability and value engineering and it has been an excellent experience for our renovation team and construction management personnel. ...The work was conducted by a very professional and experienced team who applied their expertise throughout to ensure that surprises (as one expects in renovating a 40 year old building with poor documentation) were dealt with effectively and in a most cost effective manner. I thought your professionalism and dedication was, as expected, TOP NOTCH and the end product is as well."

Lance A. Gyorfi, Chair, Board of Trustees - Oakland Museum of CA Foundation

"Clearly we picked the right contractor. I have been impressed with the professionalism of all the Cahill employees. The Student Life Center is a great facility. Thank you so much."

John F. Scudder, Jr. - Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory

"The public/private partnership with the Kimpton Group broke new ground for use. The new Argonaut Hotel and National Park Service Visitor Center serve as models of how the public and private sector can work together for the benefit of all. ...The building is a wonderful example of the adaptive reuse of historic structures. We fully recognize that Cahill Contractor’s commitment to excellence plus the ingenuity, courage, and skill of your key people are all a big part of the success of this project."

Jonathan Jarvis, Regional Director, Pacific West Region, U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service

"Because of Cahill's knowledge of construction and their ability to communicate effectively with the team we were able to keep the project on track and on time [...] Not only did Cahill do a fantastic job during pre-construction, but your team also expedited the construction of the project [...]  We would gladly partner with you on any future projects."

Bre Jones - A.F. Evans

"[Calvin Simmons School] turned out in physical reality as we had designed, with careful implementation of the details. Thank you for turning our vision into reality and being committed to the project’s successful completion. I believe having your firm as the General Contractor on this job truly made the difference between it “just getting done” and it being built extremely well. The project looks great. It is one thing to talk about making a difference in the world, and another to diligently put in the hard work to make it happen. You, your team on site, and the team of sub-contractors you assembled and coordinated, you all did it. You made it happen."

Brent Randall, LCA Architects

“If there is a Hall of Fame for construction companies, I would like to be the first to nominate Cahill. When I informed people... [of] our timeline... most people did not believe that it could be done. But from the start, Cahill believe that it could be done and did whatever was necessary in order to get it done. And this was done without sacrificing quality - I truly believe that you have built the best public school facility in Oakland.”

Brian Rogers, Executive Director - Rogers Family Foundation

"As an Owner, we have appreciated Cahill’s open communication and pro-active approach.  Your firm has been a key development team member throughout the life of the project – beginning with pre-construction design review and estimating, through construction and project close-out.  On multiple occasions, Cahill has gone beyond the standard role of a general contractor [...] I have also been particularly impressed by your firm’s commitment to green building and construction strategies."

Deva Dawson, Project Manager - Citizens Housing Corporation

“We loved working with Cahill. You are the best. I’d be happy to recommend you any time.”

Dmitri Belser, Executive Director - Center for Accessible Technology, Ed Roberts Campus

"Cahill proved to be adept at working with IOA and BRIDGE to manage separate construction contracts for the two components of the building and in complying with the complicated rules associated with the owners’ public funding sources. During construction, Cahill was especially attentive to issues surrounding the concerns of the neighborhood."

Donald B. Lusty, Senior Project Manager - Bridge Housing

"I and the many thousands of people who enjoy this beautiful park setting in the middle of downtown San Francisco applaud you and your Company’s commitment to excellence."

Donny Pettibone, General Manager - Union Square Garage

"Hilton Corporate executives have commented that our project was arguably their most successful build out of the year […] Coordination and follow through of complex issues was remarkable. Your timely advice was invaluable to our Ownership for decision making and in negotiating with the City. We are absolutely thrilled by the result and strongly recommend your company."

Geoffrey Palermo, Managing General Partner - Justice Investors

"I have been in this business for almost 30 years. I still marvel at how a large, complex building such as Oxford/Brower gets built with such precision. I appreciate all that you had to do to build it on time and on budget."

Gilbert Chan - Construction & Project Management

"I cannot begin to tell you what a massive PLUS and SUCCESS today’s synagogue tours turned out to be […]  You turned the site into a comparatively pristine showcase – debris-free, safe as can be, immaculately marked out and lit like a Hollywood set! It shone and it shone."

Howard Zach, Congregation Kol Shofar

“I know that this project presented many unique situations and the performance of your company was outstanding. The ability of your firm to manage and coordinate the many design and construction consultants was a key component of the project. ...Everyone involved in this project were effective problem solvers, always ready and able to step in should a problem arise... Most importantly I would like to point out that we could count on the Cahill team to be honest, first-rate partners.”

Jacques A. Charton, Executive Director of Facility & Auxilliary Services - Dominican University of CA

"In our fourteen years of working together we have found Cahill Contractors to be a wonderful partner with the Museum.  Our projects have included complex interactions […] as well as completing construction, while keeping the Museum open.  These factors make Museum projects particularly challenging and we have been very pleased with Cahill’s ability to be flexible and work with the Museum to achieve our overall goals."

Janet Petitpas, Acting Director - Bay Area Discovery Museum

"We finished ahead of schedule and below our Guaranteed Maximum Price [...] Your early presence as part of the job team helped us refine our budgets and calculate our fundraising needs [...] When we interviewed Cahill [...] you stated that you would attend every preconstruction meeting and every weekly construction meeting.  You did, and we are grateful."

Jerry Levine, Executive Director - Jewish Home for the Aged

"It is evident that Cahill has a philosophy of communication and engagement with the owner as an integral member of the design and construction team. ...Cahill Contractors gets my highest recommendation. Their professionalism, communication and cooperative approach made this project a wonderful experience for IOA."

Ken D. Donnelly, Executive Vice President - Institute On Aging (Former)

“We appreciate Cahill’s commitment to service after completion. Regardless of warranty status, Cahill maintained a high level of integrity and service long after final completion. ...We highly recommend Cahill Contractors, Inc, to anyone seeking a... contractor with a proven record of success on challenging projects.”
