WBE CERTIFIED, UNION CARPENTER CONTRACTOR
Our carpentry division specializes in all phases of carpentry - from the rough shell (using our own wall panels, metal or wood), to the window & door installation, James Hardie sidings, and the interior trim finishes. We have a diversified background from new construction to the renovation of existing buildings. Our key personnel work with GC/ Owner to ensure that the job is run as safely, smoothly, and efficiently as possible.
We manufacture our wall panels and components in our 94,000 square foot component shop. We are able to install the windows into the panels before sending them to the job site. Our wood & metal panel production process ensures that the wall panels are square and accurate, helps to keep job sites uncluttered, and minimizes the opportunity for theft or damage. Therefore, saving the developer money because less dumpsters are needed on the job sit and the building is under roof quicker.
Our Millwork division specializes in architectural millwork, casework, and finish carpentry. With a staff of experienced estimators, project managers and supervisors along with the craftsmanship of veteran carpenters, we can ensure the highest level of quality and customer service on all projects including hotels, restaurants, mid- and high-rise residential, hospitals and stadiums.
