Peter Whitehead is a general contractor specializing in new construction and historic restoration.  In business since 1977, the company benefits from a loyal and most competent crew, and subcontractors of consistently high standards, many of whom have worked together for over 35 years. 

Most important . . .

Peter always puts his clients first.


I can’t say enough about Peter Whitehead and his company. The quality of Peter's work is extraordinary. Peter is well-organized and communicative, he has a highly skilled group of employees, and a truly excellent group of subcontractors and suppliers who have worked with him for years.

Peter is a true problem-solver, attentive to budget and scheduling, responsive, creative, and a pleasure to work with. I feel lucky to have had the chance to do so many building projects with him.

experience, and integrity

run from the top down.


I have worked on several large projects with Peter since 2001. As an architect, it is a tremendous asset to work alongside a builder with Peter's commitment and his resource network of great subcontractors and craftsmen. Not only is the final product well-executed, the process is also efficient and harmonious. 


Our projects together have involved complex and highly customized designs in many forms: new construction, adaptive reuse, restoration, and preservation. Peter is skilled at orchestrating various project parts and nurturing essential communications between client, architect, and workers on site.


Having worked for more than 30 years in high-end residential design, I can say that Peter Whitehead is at the top of my list.
