In creating a home, there are many beliefs that we at MacArthur Construction support through each project. Taking advantage of natural light, having floor plans that flow comfortably and having little or no wasted space are influential in the design process. We direct our attention to how one truly uses and lives in a home instead of building vast spaces that get lost in scale. A smart design, which uses all aspects of a house, assists in energy conservation. We constantly try to educate ourselves about current technologies and design principles available to make a home energy efficient and friendly to the environment while comfortable and healthy to live in. We applaud the use of sustainable or recycled materials and certified forest products. Construction waste is recycled as much as possible. We believe not in labels, but in a house that is difficult to categorize. Although similar architectural elements may be used in various projects, there is not a particular style that we favor. Our homes are best described as an amalgamation of well-suited characteristics that create something truly unique. We view the building process as a collaboration of all parties involved from the owner, designer, builder and trades people. MacArthur Construction's responsibility is to get a project done well, timely and safely.

The entire team at MacArthur Construction were great to work and we were very pleased with our remodel. We have an old house.with lots of quirks and there were a few surprises once the walls were open that required making revisions from the original plan. They were great explaining options and helping us understand the options and costs based on our choices. They also were able to put extra people on the job to help ensure they finished on time-which they did!

MacArthur Construction built our house and we could not be happier with it. Since the first time we walked into the house we realized it would be a wonderful home for our family. It was clear the house was built with a lot of care and attention to details, as well as with a unique and modern style. The finishes are of the highest quality, and the choices made during constructions were smart (e.g., the heating system is very efficient and the house is environmentally friendly). We recently had our home office built from MacArthur Construction -- they did again an amazingly wonderful job. Plus, working with their team is always a pleasure

My partner and I have worked with MacArthur Construction on several projects and have always been impressed with them. The team is friendly, industrious and efficient, and the company in general is unusually easy to work with. To us, they represent the perfect mix of budget consciousness, green thinking, and style.

Duncan MacArthur is a master in his craft. His experience is impressive and the quality of the work at MacArthur Construction is outstanding. As an architect, I have had the pleasure of working on about a dozen new and renovated houses with MacCOCO and always look forward to working with them again. Through the years, I have seen Duncan build a legacy of high quality buildings, starting from a tradition of beautiful craftsmanship to more recently, incorporating energy efficiency of passive house construction. Duncan also has great design sense and knowledge of the real estate market in and around the Boston area.

I have worked with MacArthur Construction for over a decade and I highly recommend them. They have a commitment to sustainable design that far surpasses that of any other contractor I have worked with. In addition, they are a real pleasure to collaborate with. As an architect specializing in renovation work, I invariably run into unforeseen issues during the course of a job and MacArthur Construction is always a proactive and creative partner in finding solutions.

A fantastic contractor. Specializes in Eco-friendly homes. We have lived in 2 MacArthur construction houses and we were thrilled with both of them. The work is simply top-quality - no corners are cut by the construction team. I cannot say enough good things!
