Our company pledge is "to build every project as if it’s our own". This philosophy has guided Stevens Hemingway Stevens, Inc. since its inception. With Pat Hemingway’s extensive background in Architecture, and Tom Stevens’ expertise in Construction Management, we take great pride in each and every project we build, and manage each one as we would our own. Clients entrust us with their investments, we in turn, invest ourselves in our clients. This probably best explains our high percentage of repeat clientele.
Stevens Hemingway Stevens, Inc. was founded in 1984 by three principals: Jim Stevens, Pat Hemingway and Tom Stevens. We conducted business our first 14 years from offices in El Cerrito, California. When Jim Stevens retired his position in 1987, the company reorganized and continued its exemplary business model under the capable watch of remaining founders, Pat Hemingway and Tom Stevens. Pat is a UC Berkeley graduate, with a degree in Architecture. Tom earned his degree in Construction Engineering Management from Oregon State University. Combined, Pat and Tom bring to the table over 65 years of professional building experience. Every project built by Stevens Hemingway Stevens, Inc. is ultimately overseen by either Pat or Tom, a claim few in our industry can honestly make. When a prospective project is received by our office, clients are assured that the services they employ extend straight to the name on the door. SHS, Inc. is successful because of its strength of leadership, high level of competence and commitment to excellence.
