As president of Slatter Construction, Sid is a hands-on manager. With more than a dozen years of building experience he has managed hundreds of successful commercial and residential projects, including five buildings for the Santa Cruz Medical Foundation, the Henry Willey building, the Flatiron building and the Social Security building in downtown Santa Cruz, West Marine/Staples, the Oblates of St. Joseph Shrine, the 41st Avenue Best Western, and a variety of projects at the Santa Cruz Beach & Boardwalk such as the new Neptune’s Kingdom and Boardwalk Bowl.

Sid’s job is to make certain that every job is done right. On his regular rounds he checks the details to be sure that the craftsmanship is up to Slatter Construction standards, that the project is progressing on time, and that the budget is on track. And then he makes sure that the client is well informed. It’s the way Slatter Construction does business.

Sid worked his way up over the years from yard manager in high school to become president of Slatter Construction in 2000. In those years he did just about every job there is on a construction project: digging ditches, running heavy equipment, framing buildings, hanging doors and doing finish work. His depth of experience and willingness to dig in to construction details on the job reinforce the companys can-do reputation.
