“Switnerton Builders recently partnered with SOS Steel Co, Inc. on two projects at Wilcox High School in Santa Clara, CA – a new 3-story classroom building and a seismic upgrade and modernization for an existing 2-story classroom building.
We found their work to be a top notch and appreciate their attention to detail. SOS Steel’s work as a Prime Trade Contractor was exceptional as each project provided a number of challenges, but through collaboration the challenges were quickly mitigated. Their wealth of experience and thinking “outside the box” helped keep our projects on schedule.
SOS Steel offered competitive pricing on a consistent basis and often presented cost-saving alternatives to minimize change orders.
We look forward to working with SOS Steel again in the future!”

“In my fifteen years working for a general contractor, I have had roughly twenty projects with SOS Steel. Projects ranging in size from handrails, guardrails and stairs, to 50,000SF+ structural steel buildings. Cost of work ranging from a few thousand dollars to multi-million dollar structures. No matter the size of the project, SOS Steel consistently provides excellent service. Their estimating is very thorough and competitive. Working with their project managers and owners is always very fair and reasonable.”
