“My first job in 1970 was alongside my father here at C.W. Driver. Looking back over the years, I’m amazed at how the company has grown as one of the oldest Southern California based construction firms. I come to work every day extremely proud of our history and look forward to our continued growth and success.”

Client Testimonials

what clients say about our company
  • “When you select a contractor, obviously you’re looking for reputation and brand name, but most importantly, it’s who’s going to be on your job. AMPR&SAND is a historic location reimagined for today’s workforce. The project really is designed to accommodate today’s employee and in the employment world, today, you not only need to find the good employees, you need to keep them and to keep them you need to provide a great place to work. We had the strength of C.W. Driver Cos. from the top down and I do think that Driver’s long-standing history contributed to the project’s success and certainly to us selecting them.”

    Casey Brown, Principal, The Casey Brown Co.
  • “C.W. Driver Cos. was the definition of a collaborative partner. The construction of a building of this scale and complexity will always experience challenges, but C.W. Driver Cos. was able to work with the team to ensure that the project remained ahead of the ambitious schedule and on budget. In my more than 20 years in higher education, this project was, by far, the smoothest in process and most spectacular in product.”

    Andrew Lyon, Founding Dean, Fowler School of Engineer, Chapman University
  • “C.W. Driver Cos. design-build team exhibited an unmatched work ethic, professionalism, and leadership. This was a very successful project at many levels and will serve as a zero net energy model for future projects by the County of San Diego.”

    Luis Peris, AIA, Capital Project Manager, Department of General Services, County of San Diego
  • "Driver's performance to date has been exemplary in all respects. Driver has been unfailingly professional and reliable, adding value at every step. And they have been positively relentless in working with us to manage the budget, identifying cost saving alternatives in both design and materials; thoughtfully helping us evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of those alternatives; and working aggressively with subcontractors, through many iterations of bids, to obtain the best combination of price and quality. They’ve provided what might be described as the “steadying hand” of confident, authoritative leadership and creative problem solving."

    Steve Mazer, Director of General Services, The State Bar of California
  • “The project has ended and I am now equipped to give you a grade of A+++. Your team knocked it out of the park for us. C.W. Driver implemented a flawless plan and delivered on every expectation. After 20 years of experience in real estate development and corporate real estate, which includes developing (4) corporate headquarters, I have not had a better team to work with and I will hunt them down for the next one. I couldn’t see working with anyone else.”
