About Island Construction
more than 25 year’s of experience
Our founder Ben was born and raised in the lakes region of New Hampshire. He took his first steps and learned how to walk on a sailboat off the coast of Maine and spent his youth on his families sailboat on Lake Winnipesaukee. Bens stepfather Fred was a contractor and later a Marine chief engineer who passed along his knowledge to Ben during his youth. Ben employed these skills and established his first construction company at age 18. Soon after, Ben also began a full-time career in fire-fighting/EMS and retired as Captain/paramedic in 2017. Although Ben continued working in construction part time during those years, following his retirement, Ben focused his attention back to general contracting full time and began serving customers on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Ben has enjoyed traveling to different areas of this country and the world but has always known that he would call this special area of New Hampshire home. You can find Ben and his crew working on the lake during all seasons and in all weather conditions. Often Ben’s dog Isaac will supervise the crew on job sites – everyone knows he is the real boss! In what little free time Ben has he enjoys skiing, sailing, cooking and any activity that brings him outdoors. He also cares for his elderly parents in the in-law addition of his home.
What sets Island Construction apart from other companies? Island Construction takes great pride in leaving something better than how it was found. This applies to everything from frame to finish construction, simple handyman work, building up a dedicated and knowledgeable crew and especially relationships with our customers. We realize the anxiety that can accompany projects and strive to make the process straightforward and enjoyable.
