About Us

What began over 25 years ago as a home building and remodeling company, has become an industry leading group of skilled professionals, focused on developing and constructing real estate for private and public use. We lead our market in two areas: the design-development of commercial strip centers and a division that’s dedicated to multi-family construction. Our focus may have changed over the years but our CORE principles are the same as they were decades earlier: we believe in building relationships to better the communities around us. We promote these values of Integrity, Excellence, Communication, Commitment and Respect to deliver a greater overall customer experience.

Our Founder Joe Casey, has spent over 30 years serving the construction industry and continues to lead our team to improve our processes and seek out new and better ways of serving our clients and our community.

Anyone can build buildings, our goal is to leave a legacy of a better community. What can we build with you?
