Davenport Contracting has been in business for over 35 years and provides a suite of services including pre-construction estimating and budgets, and fixed bid and construction management. They give individualized attention to every project—be it a cottage or an estate. A collaborative environment includes the client, architect, interior designer and Davenport crew. Davenport Home, a separate division, remodels, maintains and services new and existing clients with projects large and small.
Describe your ideal client. Each client and project is a brand new, unique experience. We enjoy the challenges that clients and their projects bring to us. Our commitment to individualized attention means that the client truly feels a part of the project and benefits from Davenport’s personal participation.
What has been your biggest challenge and how did you find a solution? Maintaining exceptional quality while working with all the people that it takes to bring a project to reality in a timely manner is our biggest challenge. Keeping the lines of communication open and keeping the client fully in the loop ensures the best results no matter how big, or small, the project.
Tell us a little more about your most memorable projects. All of our projects have a memorable moment or design feature, which becomes a ‘do you remember when’ in our office conversations. A few that stand out are: a guest barn featuring a floating ‘cube’ bedroom; a home theater designed by the professionals who designed George Lucas’s home theater; building a Robert A.M. Stern-designed home in Westport; and building a three-story ‘treehouse’ which functions as a writing retreat for the homeowner.
What sets your business apart? Our clients understand that Davenport becomes personally invested in their building project—which shows in the finished result.
