Geoffrey H. Richon Company, Inc.

At GHRCo we work closely with our clients to create a spirit of collaboration that ensures our clients needs are being valued.  From initial consultation and planning, and on into construction, we strive to put our building expertise to work for our clients in every detail on every project.

We invite you to learn about our approach to building, what you should expect in working with us, and to view a small sample of our work that underscores the range of our capabilities.

Our Approach To …

New Construction

It is our practice to work closely with our clients.  Combine your vision with our experience and expertise and we’ll make your vision a reality. With over 40 years of building experience, our projects are treated as a unique collaborative relationship. Bring us your ideas, plans, your vision and let us get to work for you!


Our signature projects require a seamless addition or a creatively redefined space within an existing structure. Using our expertise, clients experience a smooth transition to their new space… be it a kitchen pantry, new bath or a complete home renovation. Our job is to deliver a quality finished product that exceeds the expectations of our clients.


We believe the best results begin with integrated design.  By fostering the formation of a team approach, the best possible balance of client expectations, value and quality is struck.  Flexibility and working closely with the design team enable us to make timely refinements and offer workable solutions that satisfy design issues.

Energy Efficiency

We strive to create structures that will be around for the long haul by creating buildings that are beautiful, durable and designed for energy efficiency.  We use the latest materials and techniques, blended with commonsense solutions and craftsmanship.  Our Coastal Cottage project has a Deep Energy Retrofit case study by the Building Science Corporation.

Our Current Projects and News

PHIUS Certified Builder


 In March, Tobias attended an intensive 4 day seminar to hone his knowledge and skills of building, and became a Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) Certified Builder.  This was a continuation of our on going efforts to stay current with the latest technology and applied building science in our ever-evolving industry.

We recently worked in partnership with Bensonwood on a new construction residence that combined BW’s high quality panelized construction with our local skills and coordination to create a beautiful and durable home.  With the combined teamwork we were able to build a high-quality, energy efficient home quickly.
The Paint Factory is an ongoing historic preservation project for Ocean Alliance.  Ocean Alliance is working to make the Paint Factory their world headquarters.  We previously  restored Building ‘A’ to serve as OA’s office space, and we are gearing up to restore Building ‘B’ to serve as lab and workshop space.
