Our Culture

Life at Truebeck…

…is living our core values everyday. Our culture is built by the actions of team members in pursuit of our company mission. By living our values, we build our culture. You will see two characteristics lived out by our company, our teams, and our people: caring and results.

From the first day you start, we hope you see and feel the family-like environment at Truebeck. We consistently hear, especially from new hires, how Truebeck feels like a family. With a focus on a caring culture, we prioritize relationships and mutual trust. Our work environments are warm, collaborative, and welcoming places where people help and support one another.

We also really care about results, which is why we’re one of the top general contractors in the Bay Area. To solve technical, complex problems, to pioneer new ideas in engineering, to advance industry standards, we must cultivate diversity in thought, diversity in experience, diversity in people. To be an innovator means to do things differently. It takes many different points of view to build an intellectual community capable of excellence.

The Truebeck Pledge

Some call it a mission, we call it a pledge. This is not just our calling, but our promise to our team members, our clients, and everyone we work with. This is how Truebeck is disrupting the industry…

Truebeck Values

Our values guide our team members and our business in big and small decisions. They are not generic words, but instead thoughtfully crafted and motivational sayings. To keep them alive, we recognize our team members who consistently live our values – they are nominated by their peers and celebrated at our annual company-wide huddle. With meaningful values, Truebeck is a rewarding place to work for all.

What We Build

On our projects we build spaces for medicine to be made, students to learn, doctors to cure, companies to innovate, and locals to shop. Our clients bring their vision and we turn it into an award-winning reality.

  • Steve Jobs Theater

    Everyone held their breath as a crane lowered the massive carbon-fiber ceiling of the theater onto the thin glass walls—the only support structure for the roof. Underneath the project was a massive below-ground theater with a glass cylindrical elevator. One error or one miscalculation could cost millions. With the ceiling in place, everyone sighed with relief and marveled at this world-renowned theater.
