OUR STORY

CBI is owned by the Stiles family, which migrated from Arkansas in 1933 to begin farming in California.  Strong roots, ideals, and opportunity enabled the family to take advantage of simple yet powerful concepts – Hard work works and our handshake is our word.  This mentality is brought to every client relationship for all businesses including corporate, healthcare, education, government and multifamily.

Our holistic approach begins with a thorough understanding of your business strategy – from how your work gets done, how space is utilized, how employees interact within their workspace, to integrating the latest workplace trends and best practices.  We create workspaces that energize organizations, complement architecture, adapt to changes in technology, and most importantly, reinforce your business objectives.

For over four decades, we’ve been driven to provide timely and effective solutions for businesses like yours.  This is why we can promise that no one can finish the job like we can.   All of us at CBI are dedicated to making your space and experience something we can all be proud.

OUR TEAM

We know that our success stems from our exceptional team members sharing the same principles and striving for the same goals. Our Leadership is always available to our clients and our entire team. Our Account Managers and Project Managers are on the forefront of every project and qualified to make critical decisions independently. We believe that empowering employees to make good decisions for our clients will produce satisfied clients and long-lasting business relationships. In addition, we have support teams engaged behind the scenes to ensure every aspect of your project goes smoothly. Our people are experienced, accountable, and client-focused. Collectively, our team strives to make the process easy and fun.
