We manage your building projects so you can focus on your business’ success.

Who We Are


We are a Professional Construction Management Team committed to protecting you and your real estate investments. We understand that today’s world requires careful and willful use of strained resources to manage one’s own business, making it impossible to dedicate valuable resources to manage construction and development. Our work allows you to remain focused on what you do best. We are your “in house” construction management team. We are tasked with protecting your long term development goals. This includes establishing a budget, developing a strategic plan, selecting a project team of designers and constructors, liaising and coordinating with local authorities and city departments for a successful outcome.

He has been active in the building industry since his arrival more recently serving as Chairman of the Builder’s Association in 2010.

Rory is the rudder on the ship that is Grand Construction overseeing all aspects of our projects and business regardless of client and scope of building. He is a master at building lasting relationships and takes a continually active role in the local community both professionally and personally. Rory is married, and has four fantastic and gifted children.
