About O'Haver Contractors

O’Haver Contractors is a commercial general contractor that is a closely held limited partnership established in 1996 by its founder and President, Donald R. O’Haver II. Located in San Antonio we pursue commercial building projects throughout Texas in both private and public sectors providing general contracting services, as well as construction management, design-build, commercial construction cost estimating, and consulting. Our staff has related experience in a broad range of building types from warehouses to industrial parks to retail centers to education facilities and much more. The staff is experienced in projects from $10,000 to over $100,000,000. As a commercial general contractor with over 26 years experience our approach to provide a service, which must be delivered professionally and expeditiously, with an eye on repeat business at all times.

Every project built is done with pride of personal ownership.

The experience and past performance of O’Haver Contractors brings a value to our company beyond the primary quantifiable elements presented for any specific project. Our team is led by individuals who will anticipate and eliminate issues before they affect the schedule, thereby being able to control and manage the budget. These individuals are highly experienced in all proposed phases required for any project. O’Haver Contractors has a strong team of professionals with the proven capabilities and resources necessary to handle all phases of the project in the most cost effective and expedient manner.

In providing overall management of the project construction phase, we utilize a team of subcontractors and suppliers composed of strong local based companies within the location of the project. As necessary, we will also solicit subcontractors in surrounding areas who possess the depth and additional manpower necessary to respond to the needs of the project and any changes or schedule constraints that might prove to require added personnel. Through our established plans and processes we will track and report the budget at each stage of the project.

One of the most significant benefits of our process is that the O’Haver team will work with the owner, architect and all subcontractors, suppliers and specialists through the entire process to identify and eliminate the problems that can impact construction and schedule. Our philosophy is to provide customer satisfaction through continuous attention to the needs, objectives and details of the project. We staff each project with qualified personnel who meet and exceed expectations.

Our Clients

We build lasting relationships with our clients, subcontractors and suppliers.

Cooperation with owners and their staff is paramount to any project, from the initial schedule to any close-out documentation required. We are available at all times to work and communicate with owners and staff to enable a smooth transition between start-up through the occupancy of the renovated or newly built project. Success is measured when each of the parties involved in a project, especially the owner, as well as the architect, designers, prime contractor, subcontractors and suppliers achieve a win-win situation. Each party involved in a project must take a “pride of personal ownership” attitude and work together in all aspects as a team. Each team member has needs, expectations and the desire for a project to be profitable. Cooperation among each entity involved, in all aspects of a construction project, is paramount in achieving not only an individual goal, but also the collective goals of the entire team, from the owner to the field personnel.

Your needs, expectations and goals are our needs, expectations and goals.

Only you understand the special needs of your business. Our job is to bring our resources and expertise to your objectives and priorities. We rely on our reputation as problem solvers to generate a lifetime of repeat business. At O’Haver, the most important thing we build is relationships.
