Our Story:

Bevilacqua & Sons Inc. is a family owned and operated full service General Contracting firm with over 60-years of construction experience in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Born and raised in San Francisco, Lou Bevilacqua worked as a Carpenter, Foreman, and Superintendent for firms such as Lewis Merlo, Pearson & Johnson, JH Nielson, and Williams & Burrows.

From 1976 to 1996 Lou formed Bevilacqua & Sons, along the way adding various partners & friends. During that time Lou expanded his business by buying his former employer Pearson & Johnson, a company founded in San Francisco in 1883.  During the 20-years Lou Bevilacqua ran Pearson & Johnson as President, the company became one of the biggest construction firms in the San Francisco Bay Area expanding their reach into the Los Angeles Area.

In 1996, Pearson & Johnson dissolved and Bevilacqua & Sons was reformed with Paulette Bevilacqua and sons Paul and Jon Bevilacqua making up the ownership team. Both Paul & Jon have earned their Business Degrees from the University of San Francisco as well as spent time working as Union Carpenters in the field. With the boom of the dot com era and ongoing relationships with clients Bevilacqua & Sons have left their footprint on a variety of Bay Area structures that continues to this day.


Based on our company history and diversification in the construction field, Bevilacqua & Sons has performed and completed a range of construction projects over the past 18 years such as:

  • Ground Up Construction
  • Commercial Interiors
  • Historic Renovations
  • Structural Upgrades
  • Retail
  • Hospitality
  • Educational
  • Medical

Bevilacqua & Sons Inc. relies greatly on its employees to deliver quality craftsmanship that we demand on all of our projects.   Our Carpenters are Master Craftsman and most have worked for the Bevilacqua family over these past 40 years.

With this construction experience, Bevilacqua & Sons Inc. will always deliver a quality product.
