The principles of Blake Gilmore – General Contractor have remained steadfast since 1981. As specialists in the residential remodeling and construction business, our commitment to caring service and lasting value have served us well and allowed our company to thrive in the demanding market of the Bay Area, throughout our four decades in business.

2018 started out as a big year for change at BGGC, Inc. and for me personally. After nearly forty years as an independent general contractor, I accepted a position as a senior advisor and estimator for W.A. Rose Construction here in Oakland.

While the BGGC license remains active for the foreseeable future as I continue to attend to the needs of select clientele, my main emphasis is on working to enhance marketing and business development for W.A. Rose, with a focus on residential remodeling and renovation.

Participating in the growth and development of W.A. Rose, a company founded in 1936, and now under new ownership and management with a young team made up of smart, forward thinking and highly skilled individuals, is exciting to say the least. I encourage everyone to give them a call and see for yourselves.
