About Bohler Builders Group
Bohler Builders Group owner, David Bohler, grew up swinging a hammer on his father’s construction sites with his two brothers. Before he was sixteen David was working part time for his dad’s construction company. In 2006, David was recommended by a good friend to the ABC hit TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. During his six years on the show, he rose to become the Director of Construction leading a master build team and up to 5,000 volunteers to facilitate construction projects from 3,000 to 10,000 sq. ft. in only 106 hours each.
When the show ended, David returned home to Glendora, CA to officially open the doors of our family owned and operated business, Bohler Builders Group, Inc. (BBG). First year projects included being the on-camera contractor for a Pacific Gas & Electric web series called “Energy House Calls,” creating “The Kareem Abdul Jabbar Experience” memorabilia showcase at Staples Center for Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and designing and renovating the Pasadena hot spot, Plate 38 Restaurant and Bar. David was then asked to be the lead builder on NBC’s American Dream Builders with host Nate Berkus. FOX’s Utopia and Home Free with host Mike Holmes followed. Thankfully, the local home renovation side of the business has also been strong, thanks to our generous clients who have passed David’s name on to their friends and family.
Cups of Coffee
Meet The Team
Born and raised in New Zealand, we first met Dave Collard at our local church where his design and construction work was well known, as was his unique Kiwi accent! He had creatively designed and built numerous projects with his skill as a woodworking craftsman. Dave joined the team as a carpenter and went on to manage BBG projects for NBC’s American Dream Builders. Now as the BBG operations manager, his creative management and organizational skills have been invaluable to the BBG team. Collard recently began custom designing and building his own exotic wood slab tables. You can follow him on Instagram @slabnsteel
Senior Project Manager
You’ve already seen some of Scott’s work. He had been maintaining his own successful painting business before Hollywood called. It was on the hit ABC television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that Scott Lawrence’s project management abilities flourished. With the BBG team, Scott has managed television construction projects for NBC’s American Dream Builders and Fox’s Home Free, among others. His wife and two children enjoy visiting the set and spending summers with him in Atlanta where Home Free is shot.
Mike is a certified welder and an excellent carpenter. He loves being outdoors and has worked as a local ranch hand for many years on the weekends. Skilled in all areas of construction, Mike has quickly become an invaluable asset to the BBG team. When he’s not working, he and his wife and two boys like to be outdoors together.
