Our services

At Keiter Builders, our services cover the entire lifecycle of a project — from Development to Building to Management. Because we’re a self-performance contractor and vertically-integrated with the other Keiter divisions, we have maximum control over every budget and timeline.

As a client, you can expect transparency and straightforward communication from day one, and expert delivery of your project on-time, on budget, and with extraordinary attention to detail.


With every construction project there are thousands of moving parts. To predict and manage the many variables, a meticulous
pre-construction process is our most powerful tool. We are experts at evaluating each element, from advising on design decisions that could influence budget to the subcontractor bid phase. This expertise allows us to build with an exact forecast for the future and without hidden costs or shortcuts.

General contracting

As general contractors, Keiter Builders has successfully completed hundreds of projects in the Pioneer Valley — including new construction, additions, renovations, and restorations. To ensure control of every step of the process, we have our own excavation, site work, and structural concrete division, providing you with better costs and quality control during those phases of construction. At the core of it all, we are builders, and we look forward to tackling even the most challenging projects.

We believe that maintaining clear and consistent communication is essential, and our project managers are well equipped to handle any design changes that may occur during construction.


Once the building begins, you can count on our team and proven, integrated-services model to provide you with the expertise, craftsmanship, and management needed to exceed your expectations.
