Shames Construction, founded in 1987 by Barry Shames, started building retail store interiors. Within a few years, Carolyn Shames' management and expertise moved the company to building large, ground-up retail developments. She became the majority stockholder, obtaining woman-owned business status in 1991. Today, Shames Construction is very proud to be a 100% woman-owned and managed company by Carolyn. We are the premier commercial general contractor on the west coast, specializing in large-scale commercial developments. There are reasons we’ve achieved such a reputation…
- Careful balancing between creative problem-solving and an approach to every project that uses a disciplined, intelligently designed process, and best practice procedures.
- We stick to what we do best — large-scale, challenging, sophisticated projects.
- We use all available technology to be an extremely communicative and forward thinking partner.
