Leadership in Construction

James Alden

Jim has thirty years of construction experience and a licensed construction supervisor with the state of Massachusetts since 1993. Jim began his construction career in 1985 in the Carpenter’s Union working on larger construction projects, such as; the Logan International Airport terminal expansion, the Charlestown Navy Yard revitalization, and phases of the Central Artery Tunnel project. Jim left the Union in 1996 to open his own construction company. Jim remains active in that endeavor working with customers to complete their individual projects, as well as investing in single family spec homes for resale. With thirty years of construction and 20 years of customer relations experience, Jim’s duties normally consist of construction foreman/project manager.

Michael Harrington

Since 1998, Mike has been working full time in the construction industry, although he has a lifetime’s worth of experience. His father, being a carpenter and self-employed, had Mike working with him since his youth. Mike’s lifetime experience and uncanny ability to problem solve has served him and our customers well over the years.

Mike is responsible for project management and oversees sub coordination, materials ordering, daily construction, and problem solving. Mike is also a licensed E.M.T. and a part-time firefighter with the town of Boxford, Massachusetts.
