Integrity, Creativity, Designing & Building Green since 1979

About Us

We create spaces which are beautiful, function well, are enjoyable to live in, use energy and building resources efficiently and are easy to maintain.

“Our business is built on trust. Honesty, integrity and transparency have been core values since we founded Whole Builders in 1979 and we continue to seek and reward these values in our employees and subcontractors. We are committed to providing the best possible finished project for each client. We listen to the client’s needs, research and provide options, and include information related to energy use and materials safety - and we are always fully transparent with cost information. It’s simply how we do business and I believe it’s the reason we have built successful long-term relationships with our clients and why they recommend us to their family and friends.”
