ETC Building & Design, Inc. (ETC) is a privately held corporation specializing in the design and construction of health care and life science facilities. We have completed over 4 million square feet of hospital tenant improvements and seismic retrofitting over the past sixteen years and recently formed a Biotech Division with a seasoned team of professionals specializing in projects for the life science sector. The variety and complexity of experience ETC has gained, coupled with the abilities of our experienced staff, has earned us the reputation as one of the leading health care/life science construction firms. ETC has built its reputation on performance and service. Our knowledge of health care and life science facilities is extensive and it is that knowledge that assures our customers not only a quality product, but at the end of a job a facility that functions as designed. We composite a team of experienced tradesmen/women and lead them to complete projects on schedule and within budget constraints. It is our goal to cultivate a productive and long-lasting relationship with all of our clients. ETC’s success over the years has been guided by our intense commitment to exceeding our client’s needs and assuring their satisfaction with our services.
ETC was founded by Michael Essrig and Chris Taylor in 2002. With an emphasis on specialization, ETC’s excellent design and building ability was known only to a small group of very happy ETC customers. Indeed, several years ago, one hospital CEO called ETC one of the industry’s “best kept secrets.” As the deadline for the mandated seismic upgrade of California hospitals nears, and companies and communities race to get prepared before a major earthquake strikes the state, the little construction company from California is making big waves not only across the state, but around the world as well. The secret is definitely out.
