Who are we?

We’re a rapidly growing team in the Silicon Valley construction space located in Campbell, California. We have a 30-year legacy in construction and our sole focus is on making a positive impact on the California housing crisis. At Acton, we design, navigate and build accessory dwelling units (ADUs), also known as backyard homes. These ADUs help create accessible housing options for thousands of homeowners across the Bay Area, while positively impacting people’s lives.

Ultimately, we strive to infuse Silicon Valley culture into a traditional industry. We believe in these fundamental truths:

We innovate.
We work together.
We care about people.

Who are you?

You’re a hands-on project manager. You’re a bags-on builder with excellent carpentry skills and the ability to: prepare, organize, process, and document information related to projects on a continual basis.

You take pride in your craftsmanship and in the end product, but also in the process and the positive effect you have on everyone you work with as a project proceeds.

More than anything you’re looking for a home and a team for many years to come. A team that will invest in you as much as you invest in them.
