• We are real craftsmen

    Overaa is a self-performing general contractor, consistently ranking as one of the largest construction employers in Northern California.  Our hands-on, “front line” experience informs every decision we make – from designing and building a concrete form to developing a Critical Path Schedule.

  • We are rock solid reliable

    Loyalty, humility and a can-do attitude are at the core of our company values. Our culture emphasizes continuous learning and improvement, community service, and long term employment. Many of our field staff follow in the footsteps of second and third generation Overaa craftsmen.

  • We love what we do

    From design-build to lean efficiency, we continually drive to improve project delivery and sustainability. United by a shared common goal, we deliberately seek out technically challenging projects. Creative zeal and genuine collaboration mark every step of the project delivery process - from 3-D modeling through handing over the keys to the building.

  • We are Overaa

    As a 4th generation family business we are passionately committed to our community. We are proud to have helped shape California’s infrastructure. Grateful for our long-standing relationships with our subcontractors, partners and clients, we are dedicated to providing the best value and world-class construction practices.
