550 Construction has built lasting relationships through integrity and the quality of our work we provide while handling our client’s renovation needs. Our diversified team provides cost effective solutions while maintaining oversight of the day-to-day challenges our client’s properties must overcome. Our formula for successful renovations has earned us continuing long-term relationships of over twenty-two years.  Clients rely on our unique skills to complete projects on time, within budget, according to the architectural specifications and obligations.

In addition to the services we provide, over the past twenty-two years, 550 Construction’s President, Brad Richards, has saved our clients millions of dollars in insurance reclamation benefits.  We expedite insurance negotiations on behalf and in conjunction with our clients to maximize recovery of funds due to losses created from fire and storm damage. Once funds are awarded and authorization to proceed is given, 550 Construction shall commence the renovation or reconstruction. A completion schedule will be presented to the client while taking into consideration lost revenue and attention to the least amount of downtime.
