We maintain a scale of operations that enables our company principals to be involved in all aspects of our client relationships. We personally negotiate, estimate, subcontract and inspect each construction project. This allows for tighter controls and better interaction with clients and subcontractors. It also allows us to complete projects of a higher quality with fewer problems along the way while fostering a culture of teamwork, communication and interaction among staff.
The Sabinal Group was established in early 2005 to better serve the local (San Antonio Region) real estate/ end user community through professional minority general contracting services. Our vast knowledge and expertise is lead by the founders, Danny Benavidez and Mark Wohlfarth. Together these individuals have over forty years of architectural / electrical and general construction experience. They have worked on a myriad of projects and continue to do great things for great clients.
We do not want to classify ourselves as interior or core / shell contractors. We will do “whatever it takes” to get the job done and done well for our clients! If our client wants us to paint a wall or build a new corporate headquarters, we will do either and do it with professionalism, quality, and client satisfaction. Again, we will do any project, small or large, for our clients. We do not chase projects, we establish life-long relationships.
Owner – The Sabinal Group, LLC
Mr. Wohlfarth has been involved in providing professional construction and architectural services for over twenty-two years. He has demonstrated his strong skills on a variety of projects from management of the design process through punch-list completion, interacting with design teams, clients and construction trades.
While in college, Mark worked full time (paying his own way through college) and acquired a wide-ranging knowledge of construction engineering, appraisals and marketing research. He gained solid experience after graduation working in Austin for such architectural firms as Benson Hlavaty and Design Horizons. He then joined Constructors in 1992 as an Estimator in the Austin office. With his extensive understanding of the business, he was quickly promoted to Superintendent, and shortly thereafter, a Project Manager. His responsibility for the supervision and construction oversight of all projects won him another promotion to open an office for Constructors in his hometown – San Antonio in 2001 as Vice President, where he oversaw and managed all negotiations, project operations, administration and business development. He grew that operation from no volume and no employees to performing over Fifty Million annually and over forty salaried employees. In addition, Constructors was not ranked in the San Antonio Business Journal Book of Lists in 2000, but in the last year of Mark’s direction Constructors ranked number Five in San Antonio’s largest General Contractors.
