The recently combined general contractors Dempsey Construction Inc. and Legacy Building Services Inc. have relocated from San Diego to a new headquarters building in Carlsbad. The 3,000-square-foot facility housing both firms is at 5937 Darwin Court, Suite 103.

The privately held Dempsey Construction announced in April that it was acquiring Legacy, also privately held, for an undisclosed price. Both names are still being used, but Legacy is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Dempsey.

President John Dempsey said the move to the larger Carlsbad offices will allow the companies to accommodate future new projects and serve a growing base of clients throughout Southern California.

Dempsey Construction was previously headquartered in the University Towne Center neighborhood, and Legacy was based in Old Town. The combined firms serve industry sectors including commercial development, theme parks, health care, biotech, retail and education.

Dempsey Construction was founded in 2010, and Legacy was started in 2003.
