Who is Allied Building Contractors?
Allied Building Contractors was founded by Jon Guiffre in 2007. Jon grew up informally training under his parents in building and landscape design. His father designed some of the most exclusive banking spaces in the world. His mother holds a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture from Rhode Island School of Design and years spent in both environments have guided Jon’s design experience.
While at the University of Vermont, Jon began a successful career coaching ice hockey. He found success at both the high school and collegiate levels. In 2002 he helped guide a Brown University Women’s Hockey Team to an appearance in the NCAA Division I National Championship Game. He continues to coach in his spare time at Norwich University with their Women's Hockey Team where, as an assistant coach, he has helped guide the Cadets to 8 trips to the NCAA DIII national tournament, including 4 appearances in the National Championship Game winning it all in 2011. His leadership and organizational experience with people as a coach has been the foundation for Allied's unique approach to dealing with their clients.
From Coaching to Building
While coaching, Jon led a parallel life taking on building projects for friends and family as well as working for general contractors and custom home builders. Starting out with small barns and decks and moving into more complicated projects like building a summer cottage on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Nova Scotia.
Jon’s unique experience with design and construction as well as organization, leadership, and a focus on relationships with people and their needs, provides an Allied client with not only the building know-how, but also the ability to communicate effectively with the client with a focus on their overall experience.
Allied employs a carpentry crew that is dedicated to not only their craft, but also to Allied's mission for the clients experience. This leads to a positive experience and makes for a consistent, predictable experience for you as the client.
By building a strong team of quality subcontractors Allied is able to reach out to many different clients and projects while offering the same high quality results and experience.
Jon resides in Roxbury, VT with his wife Cathy and their sons Caden and Oskar and their dog Lola.
