Home to some 7 million residents, the high-tech Silicon Valley employment sector, Napa Valley’s wine country and the urban meccas of San Jose and Oakland, there’s no shortage of diversity in the Bay Area. This region of California that’s centered around San Francisco is divided into five distinct sectors that all offer something different for residents to explore, enjoy and contribute to. However, there always comes a time for these Bay Area residents to fix up or renovate their homes and that’s where California native Anton Kalafati comes into play. With more than a decade of construction, contracting and repair work under his tool belt – not to mention leadership roles as the president of his own company – Mr. Kalafati is the man to trust when it comes to having considerable work done to your Bay Area home.
Anton Kalafati’s relevant work experience can be traced back to his three years working for the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). While with the San Francisco-based college, which reported an enrollment of just over 3,300 students as of 2016, he was responsible for a variety of crucial tasks to keep the facility up and running. As the emergency on-call repairman, Mr. Kalafati was a dependable resource when UCSF needed someone to tend to repair work on an as-needed basis. Further, he was also responsible for material ordering and building maintenance at the campus which spans 255 acres and is just a short drive from the Golden Gate Bridge. Anton Kalafati began working at UCSF in February 2004 and by the time 2007 rolled around, he knew he was ready to make a major move.
That career shift would come in the form of B Side Inc., a contracting company that has performed many all-encompassing renovating projects and specializes in window work. As president and majority owner, Anton Kalafati was responsible for employee management, project scheduling, contract negotiation, cost estimating and more. As B Side Inc. workers completed projects across the Bay Area, it was Mr. Kalafati who was working with clients on what the final product should look like. There are plenty of reasons why Mr. Kalafati — a second generation general contractor — was qualified to serve as president of this trusted construction company. They include his accomplishment of being a U.S. Green Building Council LEED-Certified associate and owner, partner and builder of Jones Restaurant that’s located four blocks shy of Union Square in San Francisco. Add in the fact that Anton Kalafati is proficient in Auto CAD and Microsoft Project and it’s clear to see why his contracting company has become such a trusted resource.
