About Alderson Construction

ALDERSON CONSTRUCTION is a custom residential builder in the San Francisco Bay Area. Established in 1979, we have worked with many nationally recognized architects and designers including Barbara Barry, Bohlin Cywinski and Jackson, Tucker and Marks, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy Design as well as a host of fine local architects.

Sensitivity to the past

For more than three decades we have had the pleasure of working on unique homes originally designed by many of California’s most notable past architects including John Hudson Thomas, Bernard Maybeck, Julia Morgan, Clarence Tantau, William Wooster, Gardner Dailey, and Walter Radcliff. We have additionally worked on homes of celebrated Californians including Ansel Adams. Our participation in the restoration of the Nationally Registered Landmark Saint Augustine’s Church was recognized with an Orchid award by the City of Oakland.

A view to the future

Our history with the University of California, Berkeley, Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Center building specimens for the testing the seismic performance of bridge columns has given us insight into future design and material technologies .

Most recently we shared in the award for the Greenest Project for 2009 in Lafayette, California where our use of rainwater and greywater established new protocols for Contra Costa County.
