Perera Construction is an ESOP general contractor and construction manager specializing in complex and technically challenging projects within the healthcare,  higher education, community, and telecom/energy sectors. Headquartered in Ontario, California, Perera has over two decades of expertise in providing clients with quality on-time, within budget construction projects.

Perera has grown into one of the largest construction companies in California's Inland Empire and now handles projects throughout the western United States.

Perera Construction has adapted the belief that in a highly competitive market place like the construction industry, one has to be remarkable in the eyes of its customers in order to create differentiation.  As an Employee owned company we take this belief in whole.

Differentiation becomes clear when one reviews our list of clients and sees the high level of repeat work we do with them. Our value proposition starts with a team culture that is trusted and empowered to perform their work independently.  

We are progressive in the use of high tech tools and we use those tools to speed the process of coordinating the drawings and find conflicts that can delay the schedule. We learned early on that if we complete buyouts, submittals, and coordinate conflicts early in the project, the remainder of the work stays on schedule.

Perera Construction also provides a level of attention to detail that you might not get from larger GC’s. We are a boutique contractor providing quality, on time, and within budget construction projects. 

Your organization needs a remarkable contractor to complete your projects; we believe that Perera Construction is your solution.



Henry Perera, Jr. founded Perera Construction and Design, Inc. in 1989. To understand why and how it has become one of Southern California’s most successful and recognized commercial general contractors requires an understanding of the founding principles and enduring values.

Since the day the doors opened in 1989, the people of Perera have worked with a customer-focused concern for quality. The results are long-term relationships that lead to both repeat business and referrals to new customers.

Hank Perera explains:

“We think long-term. We know that if we are honest about what we can deliver, and we keep our promises, our customers will both return and recommend us to others.

"Simple? Yes. Idealistic? Maybe. Effective? Very! This approach has led to steady growth for almost 28 years, low turnover among key employees and staff, and customer loyalty from many of the leading companies and organizations in our areas of expertise.”

Cedars Team

Initially focusing on health care and energy projects, Perera quickly earned a reputation for honesty and high-quality work. By the early 90s, well established in the healthcare and energy markets, Perera began accepting projects in two other rapidly growing fields: telecommunications and higher education. Expanding steadily, until it is now licensed in 4 Western States, Perera still counts among its loyal clients many who have been actively working with the company for 20 years and more over numerous projects.

The Perera team relishes taking on complex projects, large and small, creatively meeting the challenges such projects present, and doing things right the first time.

Perera Construction and Design is now one of the most recognized and respected commercial general contractors in Southern California and one of the largest Hispanic owned businesses in the United States.
