    Terre Neuve Overview

    Terre Neuve Corp. is a full service general contracting firm that can provide important consulting service prior to and throughout a project's build-out.

    Terre Neuve Corp. provides the highest quality construction while maintaining competitive pricing, due, in part to the strong working relationships we have established with our clients, architects, sub-contractors and suppliers. These enduring partnerships afford Terre Neuve Corp. two distinct advantages: stable buying power and superior problem solving capabilities, two factors that often make the difference in completing a project on time and within budget.

    Terre Neuve Corp. works as a team member with the Developer, Architect, Owner and/or Tenant to produce a quality facility in the most economical way possible. Often, our services begin even prior to actual land purchase or lease commitment, so we can help establish budget and quality controls for the selection of building materials. By providing a complete breakdown of costs, Terre Neuve helps simplify confusing cost analysis for clients, another major factor in insuring projects finish on time and on budget.
