Message from The President – Great Northern Builders Blog

Warmest of spring greetings from Great Northern Builders!  Spring is always eagerly anticipated in New England, but this year, it holds even greater promise, as we look forward to having more individuals vaccinated against COVID 19, and making some progress towards pre-pandemic normalcy.  

At Great Northern, we have spent the winter months designing and executing several remodeling projects locally.  Multi-generational living, Aging In Place/Universal Design, kitchen and master bath remodels, additions and custom barns and garages remain the core of our work in the community.  

As some of you may know, Len and I have both evolved in our roles at GNB in 2021.  Len’s title is now Founder.  As company founder, Len remains the creative force behind our designs, our Sales Manager, and mentor to our team.  I have moved into the role of President, overseeing human resources, project process, and client relations.  Len has always been the creative guy, and I am a system and process person.  In assuming these new titles, it allows both of us to dwell in our areas of strength.  This is something Len and I have been working towards for a few years and we are both excited about the opportunity. 

Professional growth and continuing education has been a priority team-wide this winter.  Our project managers recently completed Project Management training via the National Association of Home Builders, and the whole field crew renewed their lead-safety certification.  We also continue to grow and develop our relationships with our trade partners, taking good care of them so they in turn can take good care of our clients. 

While we have continually worked to deliver larger projects on time and on budget, we have also been able to maintain excellent value for our clients.  Our family run, small sized company has kept it’s overhead lean and has found a sustainable volume and company size that allows us to deliver a consistent output of successfully completed projects at an efficient rate (hint: the pre-construction process helps!).  Great Northern provides Design/Build/Remodel under one roof, and guides its clients through our proven process.  We take care of the details, you enjoy the results!
