We're proud to work with some of the San Francisco Bay Area's most notable general contractors, building managers, engineers, commercial real estate professionals, and major corporations. An abbreviated list of our client roster.



CBF is a talented and professional organization. They have a distinguished staff of experienced individuals, whose attention to detail and dependability is a strong asset for any project team. Cushman & Wakefield has had the pleasure of working with CBF over the past 25 years on many projects and will continue to work with them in the future. We recommend them wholeheartedly.

Commercial Interior Builders, Inc.

I have worked with CBF for over 20 years and would recommend their services. I have found them to be consistently competitive and their service is excellent. Since John Walsh and his team have taken over, they have raised CBF to a much higher level. They are very professional, have the capacity to handle many projects and the resources to complete them on schedule. When there is an issue, they have taken care of them quickly before they grow into larger problems. In my opinion, this is a real test of a company. Most companies can do the majority of the work correctly but it is how you deal with a problem that differentiates them.

555 Montgomery Street

It is with pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for CBF. Over the past few years we at 555 Montgomery Street have used CBF in our building as the preferred electrical vendor. We trust their quality workmanship and the impeccable service they provide. Prior to and during capital and tenant improvement projects they have been a vital source of knowledge thus facilitating the avoidance of increased costs. In closing, based on my experience working with CBF I can unreservedly recommend them for any electrical needs.

- Debra Wright, 555 Montgomery Street

Omega Construction Management

Omega Construction Management has worked on multiple projects with CBF over the past several years. They have performed both capital and tenant improvement projects. CBF has consistently provided excellent service and quality workmanship. I have managed construction projects in San Francisco for over 20 years, and I would rate CBF as one of the best electrical companies in the City.

- Don Bowman, Omega Construction Management

One Front Street

I have worked with CBF Electric for 25 years in the Downtown San Francisco Financial District. I have used their services for both Tenant Improvement and Capital Improvement projects. All of the electrical work at the locations I have worked with them are plan and spec. There are all sealed bid with multiple general contractors. Over the last 10 years John Walsh has taken the Company and increased its professionalism, size and scope. With multiple architects they work with the details to keep the building systems consistent and manageable. They are the sole source, life safety contractor at One Front Street. When something goes array with the specifications with the applications they have consistently performed with excellence in seeking and applying solutions.

Field Construction

As the owner of a San Francisco based General Contractor I appreciate working with subcontractors who consistently put forth the amount of effort into every project that I expect from my own employees. CBF always delivers. When bidding work their bids come in not only on-time, but reliably with sufficient breakdowns included so that scope can be compared with other bidding electrical contractors. When negotiating work CBF will work with the design team to ensure all site requirements are taken into consideration, including providing power or raceways to other non-electrical trades.

Field is approved to work in virtually every building in San Francisco. I cannot think of a single building in which CBF is not on the approved vendor list. Since John Walsh has taken over ownership of CBF, their commitment to their clients is second to none which is obvious by the amount of repeat business they continue to have.

CBF's ability to retain some of the best electricians in San Francisco is a direct reflection of both how their employees are treated, and the fact it is Dave Sellards running the operations in the field. I have worked with Dave for nearly thirty years and I can say unequivocally I do not trust anyone I have worked with more than I do Dave. He may not always tell you what you want to hear, but rest assured you will always be told what you need to hear: the truth.

CBF is, without a doubt, on the shortlist of subs that can deliver both from the office and the field.
