A California-based construction company is expanding its local office footprint to support new employees and steady growth.
Swinerton, headquartered in Concord, California, is adding 3,000 square feet to its existing 8,535-square-foot office within Station West at 901 Berryhill Road. It comes less than two years after Swinerton doubled its office with a move to Station West in October 2021
Since establishing a presence here in 2018, the firm has nearly tripled its local office footprint, now occupying more than 11,500 square feet at the adaptive-reuse development in west Charlotte.
The firm will invest about $1 million into the expansion that will include nine new offices, a collaboration room, six workstations, a 13-foot communal work table, and a”family room” with a sliding glass garage door that looks out onto Charlotte’s cityscape.
Jared Hoeflich, Swinerton’s Carolinas Vice President and Division Manager, said the intent is to design a work environment that helps maximize productivity for its employees.
“At the core of our culture is collaboration and teamwork,” he said. “We designed an industry-leading space for a variety of work styles, not only for our team but also to accommodate the needs of the surrounding community and our industry colleagues.”
Hoeflich said the company’s employee base has grown by nearly 30% in 2023. Since January, Swinerton has hired an additional 16 construction and trade professionals, bringing the Carolinas team to 88, he said.
Swinerton expects to top $120 million in revenue for commercial builds throughout the Carolinas this year. In its five years operating out of Charlotte, the company has constructed about $360 million in commercial projects, specializing in corporate interiors.
“Corporate interior and multifamily opportunities continue to be in abundance, with health care and hospitality also vying for top positions in our pipeline,” he said. “Our expertise is even more concentrated as we add Swinerton (employeess) from throughout the United States.”
The firm has 20 office locations throughout the U.S. in California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.
The Station West adaptive-reuse project, designed by Redline Design Group, began in December 2020, bringing offi ce, retail, and events space to two former warehouse buildings in the city’s FreeMoreWest neighborhood.
