2017 Year in Review

1440 Multiversity

With a mission “to serve champions committed to helping us grow in relationship, spirit, and wellness,” they foster their own personal growth by helping professionals build stronger connections in the world. But this effort wasn’t enough for the Kriens. After several years of grantmaking, they felt they needed a single location to bring together the community they had worked so hard to build.

This is when they teamed up with South Bay Construction (SBC) to construct the 1440 Multiversity immersive learning center in the Santa Cruz mountains, a commercial renovation project beginning with an abandoned college campus.


Thin Film Electronics ASA (“Thinfilm”) is a pioneer in printed electronics technology and processes, specializing in near-field communication technology (NFC). There is huge market demand for NFC today, particularly for smart-packaging solutions, so the company needed a new ultra-high volume manufacturing facility in Silicon Valley to ramp up their production from 24 million to 5 billion chips per year.

To make it happen, Thinfilm contracted South Bay Construction (SBC) to revamp a semiconductor fabrication plant (“fab”) in North San Jose once used by Qualcomm.

South Bay Construction understands the critical role that “Team Building” plays for a project’s key stakeholders.The architectural design team and general contractor strive to provide the best value and highest quality for the owner’s investment. However, they are often operating within the constraints of an industry where risk is high and profit margins can be low. Given this competitive environment, teamwork is crucial in preventing the breakdown of a timely and cost-effective project.
