Who we are

When we started Specialty Trades Contracting, we did so with one goal: to provide reliable and consistent sub-contracting services in an industry notorious for inconsistent quality standards. Our top priority on every project is to insure we are providing unimpeachable quality and workmanship while protecting the health and safety of our workers. We pride ourselves on finding solutions for our clients’ every need, no matter how creative we need to get.

At Specialty Trades we combine tested, proven methods with the latest technology to complete our work efficiently, effectively and at the highest level. Our management team is intent on listening to every client’s needs and making sure we provide solutions that respect our client’s schedule, budget, long term plans for the facility, current productivity issues, and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Principles of Our Work

Here at Specialty Trades we believe there is no substitute for quality. From the beginning to end of every project we have consistently found that open and clear communication as well as creative thinking will find a solution to every problem.


With hundreds of years of combined construction experience on our team there is no project too large for us to tackle. Specialty Trades has a roster of industry professionals and a list of completed projects that speaks for itself.
