Sacramento-based Otto Construction has been selected as ENR California’s 2022 Contractor of the Year. The 75-year-old company boasts a strong portfolio of projects across Northern and Central California that include senior living complexes, historical renovations, educational facilities and healthcare buildings.

The firm is led by Allison Otto, the granddaughter of the firm’s founder. She took over the top job last year after a 22-year career with the company in a variety of roles that included launching the company’s marketing department as well as managing new business acquisition and client relations. Otto Construction has a strong record of promoting inclusion, workforce development and prioritizing DEI outreach. 

Key projects for the company include the $40.2 million SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity in Sacramento which involved the complete rehabilitation of a 60-year-old former power station into a state-of-the-art museum as well as the $46.4 million renovation of the Stanislaus State Vasche Library in Turlock. The company also handled the $35.4 million North Natomas Community Center and Aquatics Complex that includes a community center, aquatics complex and is home to the only Olympic size pool in Sacramento.
