The Blach Difference

There are many things that make Blach Construction different from other builders or construction managers.  First of all, ingrained in its culture is the concept of actively seeking continuous improvement in every aspect of the business.

From the services Blach delivers, to its unique work environment, on projects and in the community, Blach's efforts are achieving some great results: 

  • Its employees have voted the company one of the top 10 Best Places to Work in the Bay Area (and the highest among GC’s and CM’s) five years running.
  • In 2011, Blach’s safety program was ranked #1 in California and #3 nationally by the Associated General Contractors (AGC).  
  • Blach is recognized regularly as one of the most philanthropic companies in Northern California.  
  • Blach projects consistently receive awards and wide acclaim for their sustainability, innovation and contribution to the community. 

Another distinguishing characteristic of Blach Construction is a unique approach to construction that begins with a simple, but all-too-often ignored, skill: we listen. The Blach team asks probing questions of clients to learn about their goals, work and communication styles, concerns and preferences, and how they measure success.  Once the team has a clear understanding of these needs and goals, the team adopts them and then begins a collaborative, intelligent approach to each project.

On all of its projects, as well as in its internal operations, Blach practices outstanding customer service. Proactive communication, understanding customers’ needs, exceeding expectations and seeking candid, constructive feedback are just some of the reasons why clients return again and again.  

Finally, Blach differentiates itself with its stated mission: to build the very best people, projects and relationships that enhance the communities in which we live and work. Blach does this by building and renovating schools, medical facilities, sustainable offices, non-profit organizations, historic buildings and leading-edge technology centers. The Blach team wants to build projects that truly add value to communities and improve the lives of the people living and working within them.
