Zigrang Construction

 Describe the featured project. 

This home was part of a fourplex on the sand in Hermosa Beach. It was last remodeled in
the 1980s and was due for a complete
renovation. The owner was a busy TV executive who resides in New York but wanted a West Coast residence as well. It was up to us to make this all come together with the client 3,000 miles away.

The architect and designer on the project were both very demanding, and our company did not disappoint. We stripped the building down to the studs. All new plumbing, electrical, HVAC and low-voltage wiring were installed. The plans called for two slider doors looking out over the ocean. We were able to engineer and open the space up and install 20 feet of multi-sliding doors to bring the outside in.

After closing up the walls, the home had details specified everywhere. Glossy white cabinets, board-and-batten walls and hidden doors in the hallway were just a few. We also installed hardwood floors everywhere including up one wall in the master bedroom

The space was furnished by the designer, and it was truly breathtaking—so much so that the home was featured on the cover and inside Coastal Living magazine.

Tell us about your firm and the services you offer.

We primarily are a construction company, but we help clients create a team by recommending architects or designers who will fit well with the owners’ desires. With a team approach, we can better manage costs, schedule and desires for our clients. We also have many of the needed trades in-house. 

Tell us about some other properties you’re currently working on.

We are very multidimensional. We are working on a large, traditional coastal home in Manhattan Beach; a Spanish home near Torrance Beach; a Tuscan house overlooking Trump Golf Course; and a modern home in Palos Verdes Estates. We have experience in all types of architecture. 

When did you start your business in the South Bay?

I started my company in 1981 while a business student at USC. After school I worked in the private sector for a few years, but I always yearned to be working for myself doing something creative. In 1988 I started Zigrang Construction; over the years as we grew, we took on more and more employees. Some have been with us for more than 30 years. 

We are proud that we have created an environment where our employees care about how projects are run and completed as much as I do. We believe each project is special, and these buildings are going to be around for a long time with my name attached.
