Aside from being the home to the new global headquarters of technology giant Apple Inc., Cupertino is also a host to some of the biggest companies in a variety of sectors, including the commercial industry. Helping provide modern and sustainable structures to its ever-evolving commercial landscape are the best commercial contractors in Cupertino.

These builders are multi-awarded and are consistently featured in the industry’s biggest publications. Over the years, these firms have worked with emerging and established companies in the city to deliver projects that adhere to the building community’s most stringent standards.

W.L. Butler Construction, Inc. 

1629 Main Street, Redwood City, CA 94063 W.L. Butler Construction led the building for Target Corporation’s Target Express in Cupertino. The 21,050-square-foot project was a collaborative effort with renowned architect CallisonRTKL Inc. The firm incorporated design and structural improvements to provide a new shopping experience for the densely populated communities of the city.  The goal of the project was to build an optimized commercial space for the brand’s “smaller format” store designed for daily grocery trips instead of weekly bulk shopping.  Projects of the same thoughtful designs can be found in the firm’s portfolio, which is 45 years in the making. That portfolio includes projects that are recent recipients of major industry accolades, including the 2021 Silver Spur Award, the 2019 Silver Award from the Los Angeles Business Journal, and the 2018 Gold Nugget Award for Best Rehabilitation Project.
