Skyline Construction

2384 Walsh Avenue, Santa Clara, CA 95051

Since 1996, Skyline Construction has been a leader in commercial construction in California, building not just lasting structures, but also forging a culture of respect and inclusion within a company that is 100% employee-owned.

The firm has also been featured in publications like The Registry, ENR, and the SF Business Journal

Skyline has built many great commercial projects throughout the years and has a keen sense of building spaces that are enjoyable to be in and experience, one of them being this project Skyline built for Chipotle. The team converted an existing ground-floor office suite into this modern restaurant retail space with new exterior mechanical platforms to support new HVAC infrastructure with new heat pumps, a pollution control unit, condensing units, and walk-in cooler equipment. Skyline also added in new power and gas upgrades necessary to support the restaurant. To add a bit of flair, the team installed custom wood paneling and finishes with new epoxy flooring in the prep areas and high-polished concrete at the public server areas.
