In 1993, in the basement of their Bellingham home, David Ebenal and his wife Bonnie re-established the business originally started by David Ebenal’s father in the mid-1970s. Since then, family-owned Ebenal General has become a leading public and private contractor, with a focus on quality construction and historical preservation.
Ebenal Special Projects Inc. and Ebenal Homebuilders, LLC have completed many high-profile public and private projects, including the Squalicum Harbor Coast Guard Station, the Whatcom Museum for History & Art, the restored Waldron Building, Bellingham International Airport and numerous other commercial, residential, educational, mixed-use and non-profit properties. The Ebenal Group’s completed projects total between $40 and $70 million each year and the group is licensed and bonded up to $40 million.
Since its reincorporation, the Ebenal Group has expanded to include a full-service team of designer/builders, estimators, project managers, superintendents and field crew. The company consistently completes projects on time and within budget, with an attention to detail and period accuracy that has garnered accolades from architectural groups, historical societies as well as from satisfied clients and tenants throughout greater Whatcom County.
