When thinking small pays off
Even with the real estate market in the slumps, one small Santa Barbara construction company is holding its own by focusing on small projects larger firms won’t touch.
Projects by Giffin & Crane is a women-run construction business and a division of Giffin & Crane General Contractors, a firm locally renowned for building many of the multimillion-dollar houses in the Santa Barbara area. Firm founders Bruce Giffin and Geoff Crane started the new division to take on smaller projects that the original company wouldn’t normally do.
The projects division is now managed by Christine Clayton, president, and vice president of project development Cherilyn Milton.
