We pride ourselves on our ability to think outside the box, from sourcing rare and distinctive materials to working alongside clients and architects to execute custom projects. We consistently provide innovative, design-sensitive results on a range of architecturally challenging projects, both commercial and specialty, and have extensive experience in custom woodwork and millwork, green building, historic restoration, and partnered design.

Commercial Construction

Commercial building requires efficiency, scalability and diligence. We regularly build for the medical and education sectors, as well as the restaurant and agriculture industries. This includes everything from elementary schools to custom barns.

Specialty Construction and Design

Specialty builds are our passion, not only because they provide us with the kind of innovation challenges we love, but because they give us the opportunity to work alongside other creative teams and clients. Our specialty and custom experience includes historic restoration, custom lofts and offices, mixed-use structures, movie sets, animal enclosures, epoxy and polished concrete floors, and custom residential additions and custom homes.

For specialty builds we like to get involved in the design phase. This kind of early engagement with the project minimizes change orders, errors and unexpected delays and facilitates strong relationships from the beginning.

Green Building

We keep a LEED AP on staff because we believe our planet deserves the same attention and care that we give our projects. We believe in practicing sustainability on every level, from the materials to we use and the way we treat our job sites, to our approach to preliminary design. We are sensitive to the individual needs of clients who want to build green and have the experience and insight to help them both explore options and make the right choices. We are RIGID Solar and RIGID Building Certified.
