Four Generations of Contracting Excellence
Bingham Construction opened its doors in 1942 in Sacramento California under the leadership of Roy Bingham. Joining Roy in the company were sons Richard Bingham and William Bingham Sr. The company enjoyed much success in the growing post-war Sacramento metropolitan area.
In the early days of the company, Bingham Construction specialized in public works projects, including schools, parks, and municipal buildings. Many projects were completed throughout Northern California and parts of northern Nevada.

The 1950's saw rapid growth into the private sector, with projects in the retail, banking, tenant improvement and emerging aerospace industries. This time period also marked the addition of the third generation of Bingham employees to join the company, William Bingham Jr. and Mark Bingham.
The 1960's and 1970's were a time of change and diversity due to recessions and economic turmoil. To better serve its clients, Bingham Construction branched out into different fields including surveying, engineering, cabinetry, and concrete. The 1980's marked the end of an era the passing of Richard Bingham and William Bingham Sr.
A new era emerged for Bingham Construction in February, 2008, when fourth generation Bingham family member, Jeff Bingham, resurrected the corporation with its headquarters in San Diego, CA. Jeff has followed closely in the footsteps of his forefathers by focusing the company on the needs of its clients in the commercial real estate industry and has successfully expanded the reach of the company throughout Southern California.
Since 1942, the name Bingham Construction has been synonymous with quality projects and exceptional customer service. Today, as in the past, three primary tenets of a successful business, build relationships, exceed client expectations, and operate efficiently, are all integral parts of the company culture.
