Skyline Construction announced today the formation of Skyline Enterprises, a holding company designed to help expand Skyline’s footprint across the U.S. and bring a new level of transparency and consistency to the construction industry.
Skyline has been a leader in commercial construction in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1996. As part of its geographic and service line expansion, Skyline opened ACCEND Construction LLC and Skyline Capital Builders LLC to enhance Skyline Construction’s significant Bay Area commercial interiors footprint in 2019. These companies serve as models for the firm’s organizational structure, operating under their own brand names as part of the Skyline Enterprises family, but sharing operating processes, technology solutions and an innovation roadmap. All companies remain 100% employee-owned through Skyline’s Employee Stock Ownership Plan.
“We believe our people are the engine behind everything we do every day,” said David Hayes, Skyline Enterprises CEO. “We’ve made strategic decisions to partner with like-minded leaders to drive our vision and we are continuing to look for acquisitions that will extend our ability to provide better outcomes for our clients, employees and stakeholders.”
Skyline operates as an innovator to the project-based historical mindset of the construction industry, instead driven by a people-first approach that embraces evolution and transparency.
“Skyline Enterprises will not only own the subsidiary members of the family of companies, but, will employ our SkyService Team, a group of subject matter experts providing guidance in many operational areas of the business, including HR, Finance, Marketing, Sales, Legal, Safety, IT, and Security.” added Jessica Carps, COO of Skyline Enterprises. “The SkyService Team allows our construction experts to focus on customers and outstanding project delivery instead of being distracted with the administrative work of running a business. This team has been fundamental in the successful launch of ACCEND and Skyline Capital Builders. From helping hire the right people to compliance, training and cyber security solutions, the SkyService Team ensures systems are in place to help each business operate smoothly.”
The formation of Skyline Enterprises makes the organization unique in the commercial real estate and construction industry – giving Skyline the ability to provide a national vs. local offering but with a more personal feel then large, national construction companies because of its focus on people and local market brands. Skyline Enterprises is poised for more expansion in the coming years as they look to grow into additional markets nationwide.
