  • For over 12 years I have been working with the great people from Duran & Venables. The team at D&V has always gone above and beyond to insure our individual projects are successful and more importantly that our partnership is successful long term. Throughout the organization, their company is full of individuals who communicate well, and stand behind their work regardless of the circumstance.

    - Brad Fannin | Sr. Project Manager, Blach Construction

  • Whenever I see Duran & Venables on a Sublist during project startup, I know I won’t have to worry about that aspect of the job. Their field always performs and their office is always on top of the paperwork. Great management, great field, great company… always a pleasure to work with.

    - Andrew Nortz | Vice President of Operations, Alten Construction

  • Duran and Venables has completed several projects for Landsea Homes over the past few years, and they always come through for us. They act as our quarterback for site development, as they are on the job at the beginning, middle, and end. Their knowledge of the site development process and their relationship with our other subcontractors is invaluable. Duran & Venables helps us by providing value engineering, accurate cost estimates, and realistic schedule durations from the inception of a project, and on many occasions, during our due diligence process. This allows us to purchase new sites and remain profitable. They also bring their expertise when we encounter difficult situations with cities and/or agencies involved in our projects. In the inevitable chance that there is a change, Duran & Venables comes to the table with several options to help us stay on track. They are always able to remain productive during these changing conditions and they have never missed a pave date. While there are many companies to choose from, we choose Duran & Venables because we trust them. Everything that is discussed prior to contract is executed in the field once the project starts, and they are very fair with their pricing on change orders. We can count on them in any situation.

    - Eric Wayne | Landsea Homes, Director of Land Development

  • Duran & Venables has been a solid partner since the onset of our relationship. They have maintained their integrity through pre-con, operations, and financial close-out. I look forward to working with them again on the next project

  • We have had the pleasure of working with Duran & Venables, Inc. for the past decade now. We've worked together on quite a few projects, such as Cambrian School District's Fammatre & Sartorette Elementary Schools and Steindorf K-12, Los Gatos Union School District's Fisher Middle School, Lexington Elementary, and Van Meter Elementary, Jefferson Elementary School District's T.R. Pollicita Middle School, Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District's Mountain View High School and Los Altos High School, Redwood City School District's Gill Elementary and Garfield K-8, and numerous others. With every project they are always highly attentive to the client's needs and are willing to accommodate whenever necessary. If any challenges are thrown their way, they never seem to lose sight of their morals and integrity, creating an easy, drama-free work environment where issues get resolved promptly. Duran & Venables, Inc. always make it their mission to swiftly and successfully complete the task at hand, while remaining kind, professional, and respectful to everyone involved both on and off site. As a result, we have thoroughly enjoyed working with them and hope to continue doing so into the future.

  • I have worked with Duran & Venables for 15 years. Recently they took on a high visibility paving job on a heavily trafficked main thoroughfare in Fremont in front of two project sites when another contractor asked to be relieved of their half of the job. Despite a fire hydrant disintegrating in the median in the middle of the work and the need to find a traffic signal loop subcontractor at the last minute, Duran’s team coordinated the work with aplomb and got the job done with no drama. Their estimating, project management, and field team is always responsive, they find ways to work to our schedule, and they work well with jurisdictions and other trades. Duran’s presence on the job bestows confidence that the project will be completed successfully.

    - Tim Fisher | Senior Project Manager, Van Daele Homes

  • I own a home and commercial property for 40 years. Over the years I have retained the services of many paving contractors. The project that Duran and Venables completed on my Homeowners association path (over 2000 feet long) was exemplary! I was impressed at the professionalism and cleanliness and timeliness of the work done, as well as extremely satisfied with the outcome of the project. After the fine experience from this company, I can't help but feel that all the other contractors paled in comparison and, that I really did not know what exemplary asphalt work looked like...I certainly do now! Kudos to Danny Duran and his fine crew!!!

  • D & V is competitive in pricing, but most importantly they take ownership of the job. They worked great with students, staff, parents and community members to ensure they had as little impact as possible, communicated well with everyone involved, kept outstanding superintendents onsite to oversee the work. I would highly recommend D & V to any organization. They have provided the resources and expertise to successfully meet your request on every occasion. They truly understand what it takes to maintain a successful relationship with their customers.

    - Marlene Shafran | Director of Maintenance and Operations, Los Altos School District

  • Duran & Venables and Amoroso have had a great and valued working relationship since they started in 1979. They have completed over 30 projects for us in the last twenty years alone. The entire organization, from their laborers to their President, is professional, hard-working and dedicated. We look forward to continued success with Duran & Venables for many years to come.
