Almost immediately, we developed a knack for and an interest in retail projects. Today we handle most types of commercial and multi-family work, but retail always accounts for over half our volume. We currently rank as the largest retail contractor on the West Coast and the fifth largest in the nation. We enjoy projects of all sizes, new or remodel, and we will contract using either design-build or conventional delivery systems. More than two-thirds of our work is negotiated and that same ratio is repeat business. We have divisions devoted to repair and restoration and real estate development, and we take specific care not to compete with our clients in our real estate development work. We are proud of our charitable giving, much of it through the Deacon Charitable Foundation, as well as our EcoAction efforts.
