John J. Daly Inc.

John J Daly Inc. is a general contractor that has managed half a dozen projects over the last many years in excess of $100-200 million. Many have been restoration projects going back to the 1970s.

John Daly is known in the construction industry as one of the most accomplished builders of ultra-high-end homes in Southern California and beyond. A living legend, John is among those who have successfully built multiple residences whose budgets range from $100-$200 million.  Alongside home building, he has also handled remodels of classic properties: the Beverly Hills Hotel Bungalows, the Four Seasons Hotel in New York, and the San Ysidro Ranch luxury resort. His resume includes palatial residences in Malibu, Montecito, Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, and Bel Air. He is currently overseeing the restoration and remodel of the former Playboy Mansion.

​Building these iconic homes requires a truly rare combination of technical knowledge and adept personnel management. The complexity of each project pushes engineering to its limits. Only the best consultants managed by the best builders can successfully deliver to completion the designs of world-class interior designers and architects such as Tadao Ando, I.M.Pei, Gensler, and Peter Marino. John’s resume attests to the fact that he is at the top of his field.

​John has managed hundreds of people at a time on site, dealt directly with the most demanding clients, and operated under timelines that were impossible for other project managers, all while resourcing the rarest of finish elements from around the world.

It is this Level 5 leadership that John brings to his projects. He creates a sense of community, teamwork, and respectful recognition of each member’s gifts and talents. This forges a conducive atmosphere of pleasant, coordinated camaraderie even under the most difficult circumstances.  His belief in positive, encouraging leadership lends itself to supporting people’s strengths and working through their shortcomings. As a result, a unique environment of synchronized and harmonic teamwork spreads out over all the subcontractors working on a project.
