Shawmut Design and Construction, a leading $1.3 billion national construction management firm, has announced the creation of its Luxury Homes division. The new business line will focus on the unique needs of the luxury residential market, bringing its proven construction techniques and client-first culture to home building.

“We started building homes as a special service to our commercial clients who wanted the same superior service we provide for their businesses reflected at home,” said Les Hiscoe, CEO of Shawmut. “It’s a meaningful move for us and a nod to our heritage as we formalise our commitment and bring our unprecedented expertise to the residential market.”

With its roots in the residential industry spanning over three decades, Shawmut’s legacy is steeped in commercial construction experience for some of the nation’s most illustrious brands and businesses.
