The Nibbi Difference
Learn more about Nibbi
At Nibbi, we are builders. We began as a small carpentry business in 1950, and since then, Nibbi has been constructing technically complex, iconic structures in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have the knowledge and experience required to deliver the region’s most challenging, logistically difficult, and sustainable projects. We base our success on the continued and focused application of three key strategies:
The Right Goals
The right goals are your goals. At Nibbi, we not only want to earn your business, we want to earn your trust. Our relentless attention to your specific needs—coupled with the experience and skills to meet those needs—has earned us the continued trust of hundreds of satisfied clients.
The Right Team
We believe that having the right people on board is key to meeting your project needs. Nibbi’s seasoned construction professionals are supported by a young and motivated staff that bring new ideas and skills to the company. The Nibbi team specifically chosen for your project will expertly manage every detail—from estimating through closeout—ensuring that each decision supports the project’s budget, schedule, quality, sustainability, and safety objectives. Our years of experience working effectively with our project partners—architects, subcontractors, and state and local agencies—also helps us to expertly navigate your project through each stage of construction.
The Right Approach
Nibbi has learned from decades of experience that the right approach is honest, collaborative and proactive, and supported by advanced technology. An honest, realistic and transparent assessment of costs, for example, gives our clients greater price certainty. Early team collaboration, when teamed with creative, proactive problem-solving, can help us maximize quality and avoid significant problems down the road. Additionally, our team’s expert use of advanced technology, including Building Information Modeling, allows us to build your project virtually before we build it in the field, leading to fewer change orders and related budget/schedule impacts.
We’ve built our business on a foundation of integrity and strong relationships. Our clients, industry partners, and employees are at the core of everything we do.
In 1950, Marino Nibbi started a small carpentry business in San Francisco. Word quickly spread about Marino’s quality work and his honest, straightforward approach. As the business grew, Marino’s brother Pete joined him, and together they formed Nibbi Brothers.
Marino’s two sons, Sergio and Larry, joined the company in 1957 and 1965, respectively, and helped grow the company. Upon Marino’s retirement in 1973, Sergio and Larry took on the leadership of Nibbi Brothers.
Today, a third generation leads the company: Bob Nibbi (President & CEO) and Mike Nibbi (Vice President). Joining Bob and Mike are Raj Choudhary (Chief Financial Officer), John Kugler (Chief Estimator), Greg Narvick (Chief Operating Officer), Joe Olla (VP of Business Development & Marketing), and Jeff Hartman (VP of Self-Perform Operations).
At our core, we are builders. In 2005 we officially formed Nibbi Concrete, and in 2020 we expanded our services and established Nibbi SPS. By self-performing structural concrete, prefabricated production framing, and heavy timber, we can provide stronger price certainty, lower costs, stricter schedule control, and higher quality for our clients.
Our business has continued to grow over the past decade with revenues exceeding $420 million due to our integrity and dedication to every project, and the trust we have earned from our clients.
