Our Company

Hakewill Construction Company, Inc. was founded in 1988 by John Hakewill in San Francisco, CA after working in the construction industry in the Bay Area for the previous 10 years. John has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1977), with an emphasis on painting and drawing and a minor in art history from Northern Illinois University. This University trained design background is particularly helpful in translating architectural and design ideas into exacting visual reality. Over the last 20 years, we have assembled a dedicated team of like-minded sub-contractors who work with us to create high quality product in an open and interactive environment. Hakewill Construction Company, Inc. is a full service contractor skilled in all phases of construction from foundations to fine finish work. We have a staff of 10, many of whom have been with us for over 20 years.


Our System

Hakewill Construction Company, Inc. uses an in house designed estimating spreadsheet consisting of 12 pages with over 400 individual line items. We like to work directly with architects and designers from the very beginning of the design process in order to develop a realistic construction budget for each project. This early and detailed cost development process, including input from sub-contractors, allows us to develop a highly accurate fixed price estimate as the concepts and drawings are refined. This open book system allows for easy communication in a non-adversarial environment. It is our belief that friendly, open relationships create better finished projects.
