With Gentrification on the rise in the Bay Area, an interview with a small business/corporation CEO seems to be appropriate. With the concept of supply and demand, resources are getting scarce therefore more expensive. We will see if the surge of construction in the Bay Area is really benefiting those with small contracting businesses or not. I am here today with the founder of Garduno Builders, Itza Franco. She created this small business in 2007 with her husband Efrain Garduno a general contractor in hopes of making it in the contracting world. I (Andrea Garduno) will be asking Itza Franco a series of questions relating to her business experience and how it’s going so far.

This is a portfolio of all the work that I did in the Bridge design class.
