Ivan grew up in a family that knew all things construction. From a very young age his grandfather took him under his wing and taught him how to maintain thirty plus rental properties. From that experience Ivan's love of construction grew. As an adult he furthered his knowledge by receiving multiple degrees in both construction and construction engineering management. After his academic accomplishments were complete his career path shifted from working under a large builder with many facets to starting his own company. And here lies Hawker Construction, an Orange County construction company established in 2009. Ivan takes pride and joy in this family owned business. What once was a home improvement and tenant management company has quickly grown into a top home remodel business. Ivan is currently working with top architects and designers in Orange County to make every home a dream come true for their clients. Ivan believes firmly in putting people and quality of work over the bottom line. He is relationship based, loyal, honest and working with him will be nothing short of an enjoyable experience.
