Pancho Dewhurst of GDC Construction, Inc., La Jolla, has initiated an advisory “Building 101” column for La Jolla Light, Rancho Santa Fe Review and Del Mar Times readers, which is available online and in print.
The column will serve as an informational showcase for GDC Construction’s four generations of building experience. Dewhurst will share some of the knowledge he and his company have acquired over almost a century of building in Southern California.
Through the years, GDC Construction has built some of the most distinguished homes in La Jolla and San Diego County, which have provided Dewhurst and his team with a treasure trove of knowledge about construction in often challenging circumstances.
Dewhurst now contributes some of that knowledge to his readers sharing; stories about the art of building, the business aspects of construction, interviews with building professionals and local history, all in a series of columns scheduled throughout the year.
Pancho Dewhurst took the reins at GDC Construction after a long apprenticeship with his father, George Dewhurst. A lifetime in the local construction industry taught Pancho that “a general contractor’s primary role is to assemble and manage your team on behalf of each client and their needs.
“Building the best team includes establishing purchasing power, making solid, long-term relationships with vendors and subcontractors, and establishing an experienced supervisory team. These are the primary tools of the general contractor,” Dewhurst said.
In his new column, Dewhurst will enlighten and inspire readers interested in developing a building team and share his knowledge in the art of building.
