My name is Philip Swett; I am the owner of the company and I love to build. I’ve been doing it my whole life starting with LEGO’s, then model planes, tree forts, go-carts, cars, bikes, boats etc… For a while I even built video games but that’s another story. I feel a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in putting things together. My carpenters and crew feel the same way about their work and we bring this enthusiasm and love of building to work with us every day. I believe that these (and a few others) are traits that we have which inspire us to build beautiful homes and have very satisfied and happy clients.
Just about every General Contractors’ website will say something like “I bring your dreams to reality” or “honest, dependable, reliable….” I think these are essential but they are also implicit in how we work. Our goal IS to have very satisfied and happy clients and if we could not deliver on the basics that would not be possible. In my experience the road to happy clientele takes four things; Exceptional communication, complete transparency, outstanding subcontractors, and attention to detail.
– Exceptional Communication: Email, text, phone, Skype, MS Project, onsite walk-throughs, pre-construction meetings, etc… These are all tools we use to keep our clients well informed and up to date on the progress of the job. They are also tools that help us to be efficient and effective project managers.
– Complete Transparency: All receipts, subcontracts, job logs, invoicing, etc… are available to our clients at any time.
– Outstanding Subcontractors: We sub the majority of our work out to subcontractors. They specialize in doing the work we hire them to do and as a result, they can do a better job more efficiently than we can. We also know that more often than not, you get what you pay for. A truly competent sub who bids a job for 10% more than the next (not so competent) sub will save you time and money in the long run.
– Attention to detail: In construction, the devil really is in the details. So much of the success of a job comes down to proper execution of countless small and large items. We pay attention to the details, it makes a big difference.
In addition to construction services, we also offer pre-construction services and project management services and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your project with you regardless of the size and complexity of the job.
