Inspiring Conversations with Miguel Bautista of Migsta Construction

Today we’d like to introduce you to Miguel Bautista.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was born and raised in Zacatecas Mexico and immigrated to the USA when I was 18. Due to my financial situation, I began to work in Construction as a labor full time and went to ESL school to learn English following academics to obtain my GED.

After 5 years of work and school simultaneously I got married and formed a family with my beautiful wife, Denise. I worked 12 years in the residential industry for an awesome company name Precise Framing. During the last few years at Precise Framing, I was offered to become a Superintendent for another larger general contractor Mata Construction.

I took the position and work for them for 6 years as a superintendent learning the commercial industry and business side of construction. As much as I love working at Mata Construction, I had to move on and start with my own business. The reason to move on was due to the love I have for the type of work we do plus I need more income to provide a home for my family and send my kids to college.

That being said, I own MIGSTA Construction Inc. with the help of my wife, Denise we have been able to be in business for approximately 4 years and we continue to work in both worlds (Commercial & Residential) industry. Helping homeowners build their dream homes and developers achieved their goals.

As an owner at MIGSTA, I’m the estimator, and project manager and help supervise some of the most complex jobs. What I love the most as a general contractor is being able to help people build/achieve their dream homes.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Becoming a general contractor in the city of Los Angeles has not been easy.

It’s been a long journey to become a GC. From being a laborer to a carpenter, superintendent, and now a business owner. I had to go through many challenges. From finding the right people and developing the right skills, and knowledge to a harmonious working environment.

Have a hiring strategy and be specific about the qualifications for each role. up today we continue to learn and improve.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We are a general contractor that has a strong background in structural concrete and rough carpentry which is the key component to a successful building/house.

We love to self perform 40-60 % of the work which allows us to have a better handle on construction sequence and schedule to deliver the project in a timely matter.

In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
At MIGSTA, we are currently targeting new commercial buildings and colleges looking to expand and be brought up to city code complaints along with building some high-end custom homes.

We truly think we will be most people’s ultimate choice for contracting due to our knowledge and background.
