At the end of April, hundreds of employees, friends and colleagues gathered to commemorate Sebastian Construction Group’s 70th year in business. It’s rare that a company makes it to the five year mark, let alone celebrates its platinum anniversary. We think Sebastian’s longevity is a credit to the strong foundation and values instilled by its founder, George Sebastian.
George Sebastian, self-trained architect, client advocate and quality fanatic
George Sebastian, a graduate of Southern Methodist University, returned from fighting in World War II’s Pacific theater and began building homes to support the expanding Dallas population. In the next decade, this self-trained architect shifted his focus to renovating the grand homes of the Highland Park area.
In the 1980s, George and his John Sebastian, fresh from Texas Tech and armed with his architecture degree, worked together, growing Sebastian’s reputation for quality in the Dallas area.
In 1991, the company’s name was changed to Sebastian & Associates to reflect the increasing role John played in their growth and development. George Sebastian passed away in 1992, leaving a legacy of commitment to the highest level of quality.
Sebastian Construction Group today
John began to integrate commercial contracting systems for cost, schedule and quality control to better deliver the large complex new residential projects that form the company’s core business.
Today, with more than 50 talented associates in Dallas and Houston, specializing in estimating, field supervision, project management and construction accounting, Sebastian Construction Group builds even the most challenging projects with warmth, collaboration, expertise and a passion for excellence.
