Who is Chalmers Building Services?


It's me: Andrew Chalmers. 

I have spent my life in the construction field.

Growing up in and working on restoring colonial era homes I learned to appreciate attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.

In my youth I apprenticed with a, phenomenal, 'yankee carpenter' then worked with a cabinetmaker prior to/ during my years in college.

Following college I ran a carpentry business for more than a decade when I was offered the opportunity to work as a Contractor Sales Representative for one of New Englands largest retail lumber yards. It was during this time that I honed my product knowledge and learned about how the retail lumber and millwork markets functioned.

After my time as a Contractor Sales Representative I was asked if I would join The Valley's largest residential and commercial construction firm. I served as the Project Manager and Estimator. Here I learned more about business and managing manpower.

Looking for new challenges; I was hired by a local technical services/ engineering firm. With this firm I became a ICC Certified Building Inspector and State Certified Inspector. I provided inspection services for local municipalities, project over-sight and construction project administration, in addition to providing inspection services for both residential and commercial properties. At Christmas time, in 2009, I was laid-off.

I immediately formed Chalmers Building Services and continued to provide the same Inspection and Project Management services offered by my previous employer. The Project Management portion of my business continued to grow. I began to focus more on construction over-sight and less on inspection. This has led me back to my roots. I am currently managing construction projects in a hands-on manner. Taking owners dreams through the entire process to fruition; site and project evaluation, design and planning through construction and move in.
