Choate Construction Company was founded in 1989, in a basement, as our nation’s economy headed into recession. Construction projects were few and far between, our employee roster small, and our “fleet” just one old truck.
What might have looked like insanity to the world, to us felt like a mission: to learn, to grow, to forge relationships, to build – not just buildings but essential parts within ourselves, our team, and our community.
We worked long hours. We tackled jobs other companies wouldn’t. We took on projects from diverse industries. We delivered on our promises. We laid a solid foundation.
MOST IMPORTANTLY… The foundation we established has given us the rare opportunity to build structures beyond our wildest dreams. To truly connect and partner with clients in ways that add value – to both their projects and their bottom lines. To be given the chance to build families, businesses, communities, lifelong relationships – and our ever-growing family of employee-owners.
To forge lasting relationships by creating construction solutions that result in exceptional outcomes.
Choate maintains a “co-surety” relationship with three of the nation’s largest A.M Best A + rated sureties: Fidelity and Deposit Co. of Maryland (a Zurich company), Travelers Casualty and Surety Co. of America, and Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance.
Our bonding capacity is in excess of $250 million per project and $3 billion aggregate, with potential to expand when needed.
Our core values are the framework that shape Choate Construction each day. Whether in the office or out on a job site, our core values are the embodiment of how we conduct business. As Choate continues to grow and our volume of work evolves, these core values remain timeless and steadfast, providing a solid foundation for future success. Simply put, this is who we are.
Be dedicated and true to our employees, clients, and partners.
Everyone goes home safely at the end of each day.
Outstanding delivery of quality facilities.
Protecting our most valuable resources.
Value creativity and challenges to the norm.
Be honest, respectful, and base actions upon values.
Stewardship has been interwoven through the foundations of Choate Construction Company from the very start, breathing a purpose beyond profits into our company and its people. For more than 30 years, Choate employee-owners have offered service in support of many charitable organizations throughout each location – heeding the call and “Building Up” our communities.
