Eleven Western Builders, Inc. is a family-owned, retail general contractor serving the Western United States since 1983.
What sets us apart from other contractors? It’s the people who make up EWB. We pride ourselves on hiring, training, and retaining the best individuals in the business to then create the best teams in the business.
Our General Contracting Division builds everything from car washes and quick service restaurants to grocery stores, shopping centers and other retail facilities along with hotels and even apartment complexes. This list along with our client-base grows larger and becomes more diverse every year.
Our Retail Construction Division services smaller projects like open-store remodels, ADA work and more.
Our Maintenance Division provides a single point of contact for all expected and unexpected servicing necessary throughout your building’s lifetime. When you partner with Eleven Western Builders, you truly get a building partner for life. There’s no need to look for third party maintenance, repairs, etc.
At Eleven Western Builders, we build and develop teams to identify and fulfill the needs and expectations of our clients, subcontractors, corporate family, and community.
We understand that in construction, there’s a long and critical path between contract and final product. It takes a team filled with motivated, talented, and hardworking people to ensure all necessary steps are taken throughout the lifespan of a project. We believe that the best way to produce a successful build is to work together, communicate and cooperate with our subcontractors and other building partners, and provide clarity every step of the way to our clients. By doing so, we are sure to fulfill the needs and expectations of our clients, subcontractors, corporate family, and community.
Integrity at the Core of Everything We Do
We hold ourselves to the highest of standards and believe in treating others the way we would like to be treated. We strive to be an open book to both our clients and trade partners. We understand what it takes to get the job done and we won’t cut any corners to get there.
As an owner, when you do business with us, we believe you should know what you’re getting and know the value of what you’re getting. As a trade partner, we work together with you from day one. Making a fair deal is not only crucial to a successful build, but it’s the right thing to do. At Eleven Western Builders, we say what we mean and do what we say.
Delivering a Consistent Professional & Exceptional Experience for Each Client
One’s word is nothing without follow-through. We keep an “open-book” mentality with our clients and trade partners. In doing so, we maintain clear, frequent, and proactive communication to ensure that our team members and trade partners understand the project plans and honor the client’s wishes through every step of the process.
We build and develop a specialized team for each project to fulfill the needs and expectations of our client and deliver on time and in budget. Our team of experienced professionals anticipates problems before they arise and applies the experience of each team member and trade partner to generate creative ideas and simple solutions to overcome any challenge that might emerge.
Quality We Can Be Proud Of
What is “quality we can be proud of”? It’s when our final product enhances our client’s business and reputation and brings success and a sense of pride to our trade partners. When we achieve this level of quality, we bring pride to our name, our corporate family and our community. That’s quality we can be proud of.
How do we achieve this level of quality? We accomplish this through professionalism, clear and effective communications and processes, and by setting standards of workmanship for all trade workers. We remain committed and dedicated to fulfilling all project duties the first time, reducing the need and cost for rework, punch list, and warranty for all parties.
Commitment to Providing a Great Place to Work
A great place to work isn’t just about the location. It’s about the people, the culture, and having a purpose. At Eleven Western Builders we make it a priority to provide a fun and collaborative environment built by our people for our people where each team member is an asset and a helping hand for the next. We believe the best way to become the best company, is to help our employees reach their greatest potential as individuals and as members of a team. That starts with a strong onboarding process and continues with an even stronger training and support system throughout an employee’s career with us.
We value each employee’s personal well-being and we’re committed to providing flexibility for family needs, personal needs, and an overall healthy work-life balance.

Our Journey: The Foundation of Eleven Western Builders, Inc.
The doors open at Eleven Western Builders with an initial staff of only eleven individuals dedicated to providing fast, quality construction for targeted groups of clients. Eleven Western Builders grew rapidly, gaining a reputation as an expert in fast-track retail construction, with an emphasis on grocery stores and restaurants.
Eleven Western Builders opens their Millwork Division. This expansion allows them to self-perform millwork, casework, and décor manufacturing and installation.
Eleven Western Builders expands their client base to include big-box retailers. On-time grand openings and in-budget construction cost continued to cement their position as a preferred builder with prominent construction managers.
The expanding project team moves into its current corporate home. The new location includes an expansive on-site millwork shop.
Client feedback inspires continued diversification, and the Retail Service division begins to take shape. Fixtures, cases and refrigeration, maintenance services, and other special projects are now completed in-house by team members trained specifically for these tasks. This specialization continues to distinguish Eleven Western Builders from other contractors and helps save time and money for their clients.
To better support their expanding presence throughout California and the Western United States, Eleven Western Builders opens a satellite office in the Sacramento area.
After 25 years of service, Eleven Western surpasses $1 billion in revenue. The future looks brighter than ever.
With demand increases and additional opportunities in the market, the Maintenance division is born. Beginning with WinCo and eventually broadening their client base to include many other names, Eleven Western now offers a more complete service than ever.
After years of focusing mostly on the retail sector, Eleven Western breaks ground on their first hotel project. At just under 70,000 square feet, Natomas Towneplace Suites by Marriott is eventually built into existence by EWB.
After 30 years with the company, Greg McDonald is named President of Eleven Western Builders. His expertise and experience are priceless as he works hand in hand with Rick Backus (CEO) and Richard Huey (CFO) to ensure that Eleven Western Builders consistently exceeds client expectations. As the first hotel project wraps up, Eleven Western surpasses $2 billion in revenue and has a year full of milestones. With a healthy balance sheet and seasoned leadership, Eleven Western is positioned well in the market.
To better serve its client base and allow for more flexibility, The Mill Shop, Inc. is officially spun off from Eleven Western. Their company mission? Designing, crafting, and installing the finest commercial millwork and casework, quickly, at a reasonable price.
In January of 2021 Eleven Western opens its doors for the first time in Arizona with a satellite office to better meet growing demand for its services in the Western United States.
Recognizing the need for more manpower and more servicing capability in their Nor Cal region, Eleven Western Builders takes yet another step and expands their office in Sacramento to support future growth.
