Precision Construction Services is an award-winning commercial construction firm headquartered in San Luis Obispo and serving clients throughout California and the Western United States. Our work encompasses every aspect of construction — design-build, general contracting, and construction management — and our clients range from leading developers and winemakers, to private aerospace firms and utilities, to federal agencies and nonprofits.
As the fastest-growing construction firm in California, Precision has built rocket launch pads at Vandenberg Space Force Base, a 3D printing lab for the Centers for Disease Control, the world’s first Hyperloop tunnel, and projects throughout Yosemite National Park, including restorations on the historic Ahwahnee hotel.
Our progressive approach to construction, and particularly our work at Vandenberg, has received numerous awards and recognition, including a 2022 Spirit of Small Business Award, presented by the Small Business Administration and the Pacific Coast Business Times, and two 2023 Top Professionals awards from the Engineering News-Record. Precision was designated a 2023 Valued Diverse Supplier by Sempra Energy, while our exemplary performance for the Federal Government earned a nomination for the SBA’s 2022 Prime Contractor of the Year.
Precision’s current projects include a 125,000-square-foot wine storage facility in Paso Robles and a two-story operations building for Southern California Gas in Santa Clarita. Precision is also the on-site contractor for the Missile Defense Agency at Vandenberg.
A Native American-owned company, Precision was founded in 2013 by Erik Wright, Karl Vaillancourt, and Jared Malapit, three friends who connected over a shared passion for rock climbing. With complementary backgrounds in construction — Erik was the vice president of a major firm specializing in concrete construction, Karl was a real estate developer, and Jared managed large green building projects — they created a company dedicated to challenging construction’s status quo and fostering collaboration among owners, architects, engineers, and contractors.
No matter what the project, Precision believes in finding the best solution specific to our clients’ needs and considers each project from every perspective. Our open-minded and rigorous approach is part of the reason we have been awarded numerous first-ever builds, and the guiding idea behind Precision itself.
