Farrell Design-Build is a specialty geocontractor serving California and the West Coast. We design and build foundations with ground improvement and deep displacement piles for industrial buildings, class A offices, parking garages, schools, warehouses, and multi-story residential structures. All of Farrell's engineers are in house, we own our equipment, we install what we design and engineer, and this is all backed by many years of experience and proven performance.
Farrell Design-Build began as the ambitious dream of Tom Farrell to work with his dad Michael and to build a great company that delightfully serves its people and customers. From its origins as a general contractor in the 1980’s, Farrell’s evolution, innovation, and expertise as a leading specialty geocontractor supports many owner’s investments and dreams in California.
Tom had the great opportunity to advance the pioneering and industry-changing Geopier® system in California with Geopier inventor Nathaniel Fox. In 1994, Tom worked with Dr. Fox to design and engineer the first Geopier project in California at the South Napa Marketplace. In 1996, Farrell installed its first Geopier project at the Ebara Technologies Campus in Sacramento. Since these early beginnings, Farrell has delivered over 20 years of ground improvement and foundation design, engineering, and construction in California.
Innovation, design-build, and relationships are the keys to our growth and success. The inclusion of a strong engineering team from the early days has distinguished Farrell as an innovative, problem solving company, that collaborates with the owners team. As an industry leader, Farrell has expanded its services to include Drill Displacement Column™, Drill Displacement Pile, Rapid Impact Compaction, Impact® Pier, and Helical Mini-Pile. The design-build nature of our business, our collaborative process, and our specialized experience with industry-changing ground improvement has earned Farrell the great reputation as quality, outside-the-box, thinkers with proven solutions who get the job done.
Farrell’s commitment to our community and industry is to leave a legacy of hard work, focused attention, and persistent service. We want our customers, partners, and employees to know, that above all else we are honest and firm, we strive to be graceful and humble, and we persist to be proactive in our work and relationships, so we can all Go Vertical with Confidence®.
