• Company Origins

    The Shea family of companies has its roots in a small Portland-based plumbing company that began in 1881. It has since evolved into a family of companies that includes one of the largest civil construction contractors, a well respected residential homebuilder, a commercial property and apartment development company, a venture capital division, and more. Bolstered by the core values of honesty and integrity, respect for the individual, teamwork, and competitive spirit, the Shea family of companies remains one of only a handful of 4th generation, family-owned and operated businesses in the country.


  • J.F. Shea Construction - Building on a Legacy

    At the core of this family network of influential companies is J.F. Shea Construction, Inc. The construction company's legacy of milestone achievements include San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate and Oakland Bay bridges, the Hoover Dam, the Glenwood Springs Reverse Curve Tunnel, and the tunnels for the Bay Area Rapid Transit system. More recent projects include a state-of-the-art desalination plant in Carlsbad, California, the Los Angeles International Airport to Crenshaw Metro line, and Manhattan's Line 7 extension of the New York subway system.

  • Shea Properties - Bringing Structures to Life

    The ability to design, develop and build places of character and significance for people, companies and communities is what drives us here at Shea Properties. Creating places that people can be proud to live in, play in and work in is how we measure success. We currently own and operate approximately 8,000 apartment units and 5 million square feet of office, industrial and retail space in California, Colorado and Washington state, and are witnessing a period of unprecedented growth.

  • Shea Homes - Living the Difference

    Shea Homes builds for the smart, discerning buyer who appreciates thoughtful design, thoughtful people, and thoughtful processes. We obsess over the integration of form and function. The small details that matter. The ingenious innovations that make space more usable, more adaptable, more liveable. When we design a home or community, we think about real life—and how we can make it even better. That's why we are proud to invite you to "live the difference" at any Shea Homes Community. We also offer Trilogy Active Lifestyle Communities built to bring people together, but designed to stand apart.

  • Shea Ventures - Funding the Future

    Providing venture capital and support for promising technology companies made sense for a business that worked hard at improving the communities in which they evolved. Shea Ventures was in the perfect position to see and appreciate the potential impact of those emerging technologies and invested in them wisely. These early investments provided the working capital and financial strength that allowed Shea Homes and Shea Properties to acquire key assets and develop their respective portfolios.

  • Other Family Members
