Yehudi “Gaf” Gaffen and his wife moved to San Diego shortly after graduating from the University of Cape Town, South Africa with a bachelor of science degree in construction management. In 1987, after several years in San Diego, the Gaffens decided it was time to form their own company, Gafcon, Inc.

For the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD), the significance of this decision was profound: Gafcon has been the program manager for the District’s $1.55 billion Propositions S and N construction bond project that has transformed City, Mesa and Miramar colleges and seven Continuing Education campuses with new state-of-the-art instructional and career training facilities, major renovations, and campuswide infrastructure.

Along with its work with SDCCD, Gafcon has managed hundreds of other high-profile projects including the $12 billion Zizhu Hi Tech Development in Shanghai, the $2.5 billion Seaport San Diego project in downtown, and $50 billion in education bond programs throughout Southern California. Few companies have had a comparable role in managing construction projects throughout San Diego.
