Allen has multiple degrees that span a broad spectrum of the construction industry, including a Bachelor of Science degree in Building Construction. Allen is a licensed general contractor and has worked as a project manager, estimator, property manager, construction consultant and inspector.

Allen believes in honest and forthright practices which result in excellent relationships with his clients and lots of return customers. We call Allen the “founder” of this company, but if you asked him he would rather be called “coach”… the coach of a team that’s dedicated to providing a top-flight construction experience.
