Our History

Our Mission

Jim Pritchard

In 1960 James (Jim) Pritchard moved to Eureka and went to work at George C. Jacobs Co. as cabinet shop foreman.  He worked there for 12 years before establishing Sequoia Construction Specialties in 1969.  Over the next 20 years the company evolved from cabinet/millwork, home construction/remodeling, and concrete cutting to projects in industrial pulp mills, saw mills, and public works.  Jim always strived to make every job his passion no matter its size, a philosophy that is still carried on today.  In 1990 Sequoia Construction Specialties incorporated, with Jim’s son Brian taking over company operations as president and CEO.  Brian has since advanced the company to that of a reputable general and concrete contractor in Humboldt County, whose crews are made up of dedicated, union trained carpenters.  The staff has a combined knowledge base of over 160 years experience, with many employees having worked for Sequoia for over 15 years.  On a daily basis, Sequoia continues to strive to expand its knowledgeable services and quality workmanship.

Sequoia Construction Specialties’ reputation stands alone.  We pride ourselves in exceeding our client’s needs and expectations.  Since 1969 we have built up a large group of repeat clients due to our constant quality performance.  Our long history in Humboldt County has fostered continuing relationships with local subcontractors and suppliers who work with us in achieving our main goal of gaining returning clients with every new project.  We would love to put our experience to work for you.
