Buchanan Enterprises

When Al Buchanan first began his construction business in 1949, he was building the foundation of what was to become one of the valley's most respected construction and development companies. In the years that followed, the business grew in size and expanded its reach to cover residential and commercial construction projects throughout Northern California. Dennis Buchanan followed in his father's footsteps - starting in 1967 as a carpenter, then taking over the business when his father retired in 1976. Today the company continues to grow by combining innovative use of the latest methods and technologies with such old-fashioned notions as integrity, cooperation, and plain hard work. 

Buchanan's legacy of excellence established over the past decades continues today with expansion into new regions. As the company moves forward, it brings the same standard of quality in construction practices and working relationships that have established Buchanan Enterprises, Inc. as one of Northern California's finest developers.


"Dennis Buchanan has an interesting combination of energy and conservatism.  He has the energy level and desire to achieve, tempered with a conservatism that makes him research projects thoroughly before making important decisions.  He has learned that sound development requires you to think things through - an approach we at the bank share.  Everyone who works for Dennis seems to have that same philosophy."
