Otto Construction started out of the back of John F. Otto’s pickup truck in 1947. Business was done with a handshake, and a reputation of hard work and dedication was built. In 1971, Carl Otto (2nd generation) took over as President, and continued the family legacy of creating relationships and building for tomorrow. His commitment to philanthropic projects further established Otto within the Sacramento community. In 2000, Allison Otto (3rd generation) joined the family business and launched the company’s marketing department. Throughout 70 years, Otto Construction has maintained their high standards of delivering a quality project at a competitive price.
“The success of Otto Construction is owed to our hardworking employees who continue to maintain the basic principles that John F. Otto established: honesty, integrity, and compassion for others,” said President Carl Barrett.
Otto has built many notable projects in the region including the Sacramento International Airport Terminal A Parking Garage and Food Court Renovation, California Lottery Headquarters, Bonney Field, L Street Lofts, Oak Park Community Center, UC Davis Memorial Union Renewal, and multiple projects at the Sacramento Zoo.
They are currently the contractor for the Powerhouse Science Center, Sacramento State Student Housing, and working on multiple school district campuses including San Juan Unified School District, Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District, and Woodland Joint Unified School District.
