About this pro

I think the most important thing to understand about Charles River Construction is: we do the work - our employees, not subcontractors. This gives us the ability to accurately control our projects' quality, cost, and schedule.

We provide detailed material/labor budgets and work schedules before the project begins - helping you determine the viability of projects and their scopes.

Beyond internal and external construction experience, we have over 10 years of landscaping experience: mowing, trimming, sprinklers, snow removal, patios, etc.

Construction Supervisor License - CS-115061

    Honest and very specific cost break down. I knew exactly where all the money was going and how much each component would cost. I felt like Chris and his team cared about the work they were doing and did it right!

    Charles River Construction did a great job renovating my house. They executed all of the things I requested and were able to finish on time and within a reasonable budget. Would hire them again.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

If the project is outside the scope of our quick quotes feature on our website (ex: full kitchen/bath renovations), we work with our clients through all phases of the project - design, preconstruction, procurement, construction, closeout. Each project is different and requires a custom tailored approach to suit my clients needs.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

4 years as Project Manager at high end senior living facility renovating ~75 apartments a year

10 years as a Landscape Professional

Massachusetts Construction Supervisor license - Unrestricted

How did you get started in this business?

From Chris (CRC's President) - In my previous role, I was responsible for the construction work and management of a team of five skilled professionals that was able to completely renovate an average of 75 apartments a year. Towards the end of my time with the organization, my hands on time in the field diminished as management wanted me in the office as a more traditional "white hat" project manager. This made the decision to branch out on my own much easier - I really enjoy the hands-on aspect of my career and working with my team on site.

What types of customers have you worked with?

Residential Homeowners

Senior Living Facilities

State and Municipal agencies
