We have successfully completed dozens of retail projects throughout Vermont and New Hampshire.

Connor Contracting has successfully completed dozens of retail construction projects throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. Our strong track record includes projects of all sizes -- from smaller, interior fit-ups to the complete stand-alone construction of new retail sites. We offer clients a local presence and a great team of preferred subcontractors who consistently deliver the best craftsmanship at a fair price. We recognize that retail projects need to be finished on-time and on-budget so that clients can get back to business as quickly as possible. When renovating existing sites, we work to ensure that the client's daily operations proceed without intrusion or interruption.

They rose to the challenge with high integrity, commitment to purpose, flexibility during adversity, and an enduring commitment to the best interests of all the parties involved.   Whether it was attention to detail in the bidding process with subcontractors, or coordinating with the sometimes arduous permitting issues every project faces, to dealing with subcontractor issues, I always knew that Mike had the best interests of the project at heart."

  • "I have had the pleasure of working with John Connor and his team at Connor Contracting for approximately five years. Connor Contracting was highly recommended as an organization with great experience in helping businesses see a project from investigation to completion. John [and his brother] Fred helped us assess the strengths and challenges of each site and at the same time were meeting with our Board members and key staff about what was needed in a new facility and what kind of a project we could afford. The construction of our new school and administrative building was completed last summer. The project came in at the budgeted amount and we experienced no program delays throughout the entire project (approximately 9 months). We are very pleased with our new home and greatly appreciate the efforts of the entire team at Connor Contracting."

This is invaluable when construction is not your area of expertise!"
