Local Builders and General Contractors

Clients often ask us for the names of reputable, high-end builders/ general contractors. While we are not able to offer specific recommendations, the following is a sampling of firms who we know regularly perform renovations in the Back Bay, Beacon Hill and South End.


Kennedy Design Build

Kennedy Design Build is a premier general contracting company specializing in custom residences in and around Boston with a concentration in Boston’s South End. We strive to deliver a product that not only reflects our commitment to unparalleled craftsmanship but leaves a lasting impression on those who experience it. Unequaled quality and customer satisfaction will continue to define Kennedy Design Build as a leader in Custom Residential Construction.

Payne Bouchier

Payne | Bouchier grew out of a passion for New England’s historic buildings and a commitment to high standards. We have been building, restoring and renovating fine homes throughout New England since 1981. After Hampshire College, Steve Payne had mastered the minutiae of millwork and cabinetry, and acquired an encyclopedic knowledge of the history and methodologies of woodworking. Tom Payne brought a strong sense of aesthetic and a keen eye for details, developed from his studies at Boston University’s Program in Artisanry. Oliver Bouchier was born in England where he cultivated his affinity for fine design and the traditions of British craftsmanship. Steve and Tom Payne and Oliver Bouchier pooled their collective talents to build Payne | Bouchier into the strong and diverse company that it is today. Working in the art of historic renovation, yet well versed in the forms, systems and materials of new construction, we can maneuver effortlessly between traditional and modern builds. If the design imperative is a historically authentic restoration or sleek modernity, we will bring our rigorous project management and skilled craftsmanship to bear. Whether it is making a window sash with historically accurate muntin profiles or doing a custom lay-up of exotic veneer, the outcome is beautiful and the process is enjoyable.
