Meet our Leadership Team

Led by Rob Walker, UpCycle Builders, Inc. was born out of 4 generations of construction experience in the Bay Area. We care about our clients, our employees, our build partners, and of course, our projects. We believe planning and preconstruction are the greatest determining factors in a successful build, and we believe in the big picture, and doing what is right to ensure we are here for generations to come.
