Christopher Gate Construction is a San Francisco-based builder specializing in high-end residential construction. With over 30 years of experience, we work with top architects, designers and homeowners to turn their design visions into reality.
Expertise, teamwork and integrity are at the heart of what we do.
We are committed to our craft and our standards of excellence are reflected in everything we do. Our team of talented subcontractors share our commitment to quality and together we deliver exceptional projects, on-time and on-budget. Our years of building experience allow us to anticipate problems before they arise and we provide architects and homeowners thoughtful solutions to complex problems before the construction process even begins.
Teamwork is not just a buzzword to us – it’s fundamental to the way we operate. We are a collaborative team of professionals who love what we do. Each of us brings unique skills to the project and together we build beautiful things. We believe that a standard of teamwork and atmosphere of collaboration can make the difference between a good project and a great one.
We practice straightforward communication and full transparency at all times. We also listen. We take the time to address concerns upfront and answer questions every step of the way. We maintain outstanding project management and seamless lines of communication to keep every team member on the same page throughout the construction process. This clarity of communication is vital to each project’s success.
Honesty and integrity are core principles and part of every decision we make. We understand how important your construction investment is and we treat each project as if it were our own. We’ve earned our clients’ trust one project at a time and we believe our reputation for integrity and trustworthiness sets us apart from the rest.
“As an architect, I’ve enjoyed tremendously working with Chris and his crew. They are sharp, incredibly responsive, understanding of our design direction while still offering great ideas and support. Best of all — they make my clients happy. Their sophisticated project management software is unique and keeps clients and professionals immediately up to date. Chris’ engaging personality, openness and agreeability have proven consistent throughout the course of construction. I look forward to working with him again.”

“Chris and his team were wonderful to work with. They were incredibly patient during the bidding and decision making process for a challenging residential renovation. Throughout the process they were immensely helpful to the team in making decisions on how to scope the project to include the most important elements and remove what was not needed and could be done later. The finished work was of great quality and the overall delivery and cost was exceptional. Chris is incredibly trustworthy and enjoyable to work with and I look forward to working on future projects with him.”

“Choosing a good general contractor requires finding one with a certain attention to detail, craftsmanship, accounting capacity and good customer interaction. It is rare to find all these traits in a single company. Chris and his team provide a combination of superb work and general kindness that is rare to find unified. I cannot recommend them more highly.”
— PIERRE T.
“Chris and his team are capable of understanding the homeowner needs and making important decisions without fail. What was far above standard was his attention to detail and his judgment. His subcontractors were equally reliable and dedicated to craft. His crew handled complex moldings and a 30-foot interior atrium with aplomb. Finally something that is hard to measure in $/square feet, they actually care about not just building code, but the overall outcome of your project. They want you to be happy with the job done.”
— PAUL T.
