Waterfront Planning

We navigate you through the various zoning and restrictions associated with building within the shoreland. Our experience provides a detailed “road map” utilizing our working relationships with local and state regulatory authorities throughout all aspects of the design of your build. We feel it’s important to consider all opportunities available to you–ensuring you’ve maximized all that’s available for your family and generations to come.

Newest Technology

Technology in construction comes with devising innovative new ways of constructing and whilst the changing future of construction is largely unknown, we employ some construction technology trends that are paving the way for certain futuristic construction technology.

Construction Quality Management

Construction quality management is one of the pillars of project management and project delivery. Good construction quality management reduces the number of mistakes and rework on a project. This helps projects come in on time and budget and helps us maintain a good relationship and reputation.

“My husband and I met with Joe a few times prior to construction of our new home on the lake, he showed us a few houses that were complete and/or under construction at that time, to give us an idea of his different subcontractors workmanship. We were very impressed immediately at how he took the time to explain how the house would be laid out at the job site, how the processes with the town would work and he painted a very realistic picture how he would manage expectations of possible weather delays, supply issues, change orders, etc. After construction began, it became very clear he was knowledgeable dealing with the town code officer as we had a few curve balls thrown at us, Joe was able to iron each out those issues out. Joe also set up us with all of the vendors we needed in order to make our choices for cabinetry, flooring, lighting and appliances, all of whom met our expectations. We love our beautiful home, we are very proud of it and love showing if off! Thank you again! ”
