Bill Kavanagh, owner and President of WJK, has been a licensed contractor since 1983. He began in 1974 with Design Environ, an upscale builder based in Los Altos Hills, CA. From the very beginning his experience has been focused on prestigious, high-value properties.
In 1981, Bill co-founded a construction company serving the San Francisco Peninsula. With his commitment to excellence and integrity, the company grew to become one of the premier builders in the Bay, with 28 full time employees, and a busy calendar filled with multiple simultaneous projects.
Bill made a move in 1990 to Auburn, CA, seeking more creative building opportunities and a better environment to raise his children. He started Kavanagh Construction, and in 2004, incorporated to form WJK.
Throughout his career, Bill has maintained a commitment to excellence and integrity in all of his projects. He describes a need in the industry for a “back to basics” attitude where trust, dependability and professionalism are the guiding principles of business. Maybe this is the reason most of his former clients remain good friends of the Kavanaghs.
