Allen Construction, a general contractor with offices in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Ventura and Los Angeles, is open during the current COVID-19 epidemic. Deemed an "essential business", we continue to build both new homes and remodeling projects, as determined by our clients, on a case by case basis. We have implemented extensive safety protocols to ensure our job sites, staff, and clients are healthy. We are also available for consultation on new building projects. Since we are either working in the field or from home, please give us a phone call at (805) 884-8777 x 1, leave a message, and someone will get back to you shortly.
Why We're Green
Allen Construction was one of the 1st two businesses certified through Santa Barbara County's Green Business Program. We have since been recertified twice, most recently achieving Innovator status. In addition to producing a portion of our energy with a 5KW rooftop solar system and establishing green purchasing practices for our office, we have adopted an alternative transportation policy that encourages employees to bike, walk, take the bus, drive a high mileage car or truck, carpool, ride an electric or gas scooter, or motorcycle to work. When an employee uses one of these alternative methods, they are eligible to participate in a monthly "Clean Commuter Drawing" for a $125 prize. We also have an electric bike that employees can ride to a business meeting or personal errand. During the most recent recertification, we adopted a company-wide environmental policy outlining guiding principles for our operations; adopted an Integrated Pest Management to ensure pests are controlled using the least toxic approach; are in the process of developing minimum green standards for every project that go above and beyond current building codes; and, are charting a path to encourage our clients to consider building all electric, net-zero homes, producing all the power needed to operate their homes from the sun.
