Faber Construction moves to new office in Lynden.

Faber Construction, providing Western Washington with quality buildings, homes and site work since 1987, moved this month to a larger Lynden headquarters that will facilitate future growth.

Faber Construction, owned by Rick and Debbie Faber, now is located at 6951 Hannegan Road, just a quarter-mile north of East Pole Road and across from its equipment and staging yard. The company extensively renovated the two-story, 7,200-square-foot building before moving into it.

“We’ve steadily evolved and expanded since our initial focus on agricultural construction,” said Rick Faber, company president. “With success building hotels, schools, apartments, roads and bridges, Faber Construction has become a fully integrated company and has more than doubled our number of employees in eight years to about 120.”

The company’s notable projects nearing completion indicate its wide range of capabilities. They include a five-story, 116-room La Quinta hotel in Marysville, 14 townhome units for Skagit County Housing Authority in Burlington and the 11,000-square-foot Salish Village Travel Center in Ferndale.

While Faber Construction has performed site work and built custom homes for many years, it created two divisions that focus on those areas. The earthwork division was started in 2009 to offer both public and private site work, including general site prep, roads, and utility projects.  The residential division, West Coast Homes, specializes in both spec and custom homes and was added in 2011.

The company’s revenue rose to approximately $45 million in 2019, fueled by growth in its new industry sectors as well as investments in our technology and equipment, Faber said

“I attribute our success to our faith and an incredible team,” Faber said. “Many of our crew members have been with us for years, providing quality and stability for our clients.”

The public will be invited to an open house at the new headquarters later this year due to the current pandemic crisis.
