Our Background

Hien TranAs a local San Francisco general contractor, Anvil Builders specializes in public works and infrastructure projects with an approach that is firmly structured on military standards, performance, and ethics.

After incurring permanent injuries from an attack during service in Iraq, HT Tran retired from the military and used his experience to build a career in government contracting and construction. In 2010, HT founded Anvil Builders along with two strategic partners, Alan Guy (COO) and Richard Leider (Director). Alan added key experience in large-scale urban construction, while Richard provided strategic direction from 25 years of experience in commercial construction and real estate.

To date, Anvil Builders has successfully delivered and self-performed tens of millions of dollars in municipal, state, and federal contracts. Some of our recently completed work includes several of the Bay Area’s major infrastructure projects, including the Transbay Terminal, SFO Airport, and the historic Coit Tower.

We are dedicated to building and supporting our community by providing opportunities through local unions and CityBuild. HT is on the United Contractors Association’s Veteran Hiring Committee and on the board for Veterans at San Francisco State University. The San Francisco Chronicle and CNN have featured our ongoing commitment to small, minority, and disadvantaged businesses.

We have an A, B, ASB, and C61/D63 California Contractors license.
