Stratford based Build began in 2001 when Rory McDonnell, who was project manager for Howley Design and Build for ten years prior, purchased the company and rebranded. Over a decade later, Rory has grown the company to be a respected forerunner of design and build projects in the area, while gaining a reputation for quality services and reliability.
Rory is a Licensed General Carpenter and Certified Architectural Designer.
His design philosophy is to use the best of modern technology to retain the integral characteristics of each home. He has an avid interest in architecture and likes visiting historic homes on his travels, as illustrated in our blog. In his spare time he enjoys renovating his 1941 schoolhouse home, motorcycle adventures and working towards his Commercial Pilot's License.
At Build, we are only as good as our people.
Our team members embrace the Build philosophy: to be industry leaders in our area, with an emphasis on integrity, high standards and excellence in workmanship. Our culture promotes great customer service as a bridge to building sustainable relationships with our clients.
