Scott and Sandra Gjesdahl

BRISTOL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION; AN INTERNATIONALLY AWARD WINNING DESIGN BUILD FIRM; IS THE FOUNDER OF THE JAQOR COAST DEVELOPMENT.  THE COMPANY WAS FOUNDED BY PRINCIPAL SCOTT GJESDAHL NEARLY 40 YEARS AGO IN SEATTLE, WASHINGTON.  SCOTT’S SKILLS IN CABINETRY AND CUSTOM FURNITURE MAKING EMERGED AS A TEENAGER, AND HE BUILT A GENERAL CONTRACTING FIRM THAT BECAME QUICKLY SUCCESSFUL BY INTEGRATING HIS CUSTOM MILLWORK. 

SANDRA GJESDAHL BECAME A PRINCIPAL OF THE FIRM IN 2003, WHEN SHE PARTNERED WITH SCOTT IN LIFE AS WELL.  SANDRA’S DEGREE AND PRACTICE IN ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS WAS THEN FOLDED INTO THE BUSINESS MODEL.  A TRUE DESIGN-BUILD FIRM.

OUR BUSINESS NOW COVERS ALL AREAS OF EXPERTISE AND TALENT WHICH ENABLES BRISTOL TO PROVIDE A LEVEL OF BUILT QUALITY THAT IS TRULY RARE.  EACH PROJECT IS CAREFULLY TAILORED THROUGH ARCHITECTURE, CONSTRUCTION, CABINETRY FABRICATION AND INTERIOR DESIGN TO CREATE EXCEPTIONAL ENVIRONMENTS.  WE HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN DOZENS OF PUBLICATIONS AND HAVE WON OVER 40 LOCAL AND NATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS.

WE FOUNDED BRISTOL BELIZE IN 2012 WHICH FOLLOWS THE SAME SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS MODEL WE CREATED IN THE STATES.  IN 2017, BRISTOL’S FOCUS WILL BE CONCENTRATED ENTIRELY IN BELIZE AS ALL U.S. BASED PROJECTS WILL BE COMPLETE BY THE END OF 2016.  IN ADDITION TO BRINGING A CREW OF 6 FROM THE UNITED STATES, WE HAVE BEEN TRAINING A CORE CREW OF 8 PEOPLE IN BELIZE FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS IN ALL SKILLED AREAS OF CONSTRUCTION.
