Michael Robert Construction prides ourselves on a commitment to design and attention to detail, and have been rewarded with both local and national recognition; we have received “best of houzz” awards for almost ten consecutive years. We are devoted to Westfield and surrounding area through our work, community outreach and our own families. In fact, one way we show our community focus is through a partnership with NBC’s nationally aired “George to the Rescue,” helping improve the quality of life of local families through dramatic home renovations.
MRC’s roots in design and building run deep. In particular, Mike’s study of classical architecture and design give him a solid foundation for respecting a home’s integrity and natural balance – factors that continue to differentiate MRC from other builders. Although continuing education is not a state requirement for general contractors, MRC believes that it is essential to continued improvement. Our team regularly attends industry classes on all aspects of building, ranging from latest energy-efficiency techniques to updated safety standards.
We believe that remodeling should be seen as a whole house approach, where new design and construction is seamlessly integrated with the existing structure. Our work ranges from whole house renovations and design/build custom homes to additions and floor plan changes.
Our goal is to create a project that meets our client’s unique needs, ensuring the home renovation or custom new construction is realized in an efficient, timely and organized manner. We shape a building program and aesthetic vision with our clients from the start, so transition from design development to physical construction is accomplished seamlessly. Our team works closely with our clients to craft purposeful design, leading to extraordinary results.
The design/build approach allows for clients to have a single point of contact throughout the process, from planning to building completion. This is in contrast to the model in which the architect is separately contracted from the general contractor. This model, called design/bid/build (meaning the client hires the architect first), is slow, inefficient due to many players and tends to create budget issues.
Design/build plans and construction are under one umbrella, allowing for syncing design and construction, which optimizes cost, scheduling, communication and constructibility.
With almost a decade committed to mastering the green energy approach, we are committed to building homes differently. We strive to eliminate inefficiencies with energy consumption in your home, whether it be a new custom construction project, an addition or a renovation. Improvements include, but are not limited to, focusing on proper insulation, air sealing and upgrading heating and cooling systems. Using quality products and proven methods, we aim for optimal energy efficiency.
For clients who are looking to elevate their project, MRCxEMD joins the construction know how of Mike with the design aesthetic of Ellie Mroz Design Studio. Together in life and in business, MRCxEMD marries form and function, exterior and interior and makes the house uniquely purposeful and pretty. Ellie Mroz Design (EMD) brings a refined approach to design development. Exclusive to our design-build process, Ellie Mroz Design can be tapped as a resource for interior planning early in the design phases. Ellie works to assess the changes, achieving a level of design not often considered until the finishing phases of construction. When you add EMD to the process you can include all or select parts of the following:
As a local realtor in the area for 30 years, I have seen a lot of construction. If you are looking for top quality workmanship and service look no further. Mike has an amazing eye for detail and truly builds custom! You won’t be disappointed!
We hired Michael Robert Construction for a complete home renovation and we could not be happier with the results! Mike and our project manager, Steve, were extremely professional, collaborative, and very mindful of what we were looking for. Our house was built in the 1930's and we wanted to make the house more functional but still keep the character intact. They added great details that we never would have thought of, and all of the sub-contractors performed high quality work… We absolutely love our new home!
… Michael and his team took our vision and made it into a stunning reality. Not only did we receive excellent craftsmanship, but also a team who was responsive, knowledgeable and experts in their fields. Michael has a keen eye for detail and that showed with every walk-thru and conversation we had with him. As a bonus, his wife Ellie (an interior designer), picked out a phenomenal wallpaper for the bedroom which we get complimented on by those who see it. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Michael Robert Construction - an exceptional experience from start to finish!
I have had the pleasure of working with Michael Robert Construction on several projects. The staff is very knowledgeable, they are extremely detail oriented and they take tremendous pride in their work. It is always smooth sailing working with Michael Robert Construction and I HIGHLY recommend them!
After meeting with multiple companies to renovate our house, MRC detailed oriented team was the difference. We are very happy with how everything came together as well as the spectacular result. I would highly recommend any homeowner to use Michael Robert Construction.
…the team at MRC is patient, professional, and with you every step of the way through the project. The experience, attention to detail, quality, and craftsmanship, are second to none. Having an older home, it was important for the addition to seamlessly tie into the existing structure and not feel like a bolt on. In the end we have perfectly matching wood clapboard siding, matching trims, same height ceilings throughout, no strange flooring transitions, etc. MRC achieved seamless and it looks beautiful. Our home came out great and we can’t imagine having partnered with any other group to complete the work. Mike and the team at MRC made it happen…
My wife and I met with a few architects and builders prior to going with Mike Mroz and MRC for our renovation job and we couldn’t be happier with the decision. We were enthusiastic about Mike’s design vision and ideas for the layout and on the practical side comforted with the transparency with regards to pricing and scheduling. Mike and his team of project managers we’re friendly, professional and available during the project build out. It was incredibly helpful for MRC to come back after a year to address any issues that appeared after the house had gotten a chance to settle. We would absolutely use Mike and his team again…
We highly recommend Mike and the entire team at MRC. They worked closely with us to design and build a major home renovation and the results are fantastic…Once construction began the team showed up every day and was able to stick to the detailed time line, which was really important since we decided to remain in the house during construction. Lines of communications were always open and they were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had…
My wife and I worked with Michael Robert Construction on a home renovation project in 2018. We were extremely pleased with the level of knowledge, professionalism and quality that came from their team. We were working under a strict budget and they delivered a high quality product while staying on that budget. He did not nickel and dime us on small nuances or issues inherent with a major renovation on a 100 year old house. This was very important to us! The team of project managers and carpenters basically became part of the family during the project as they were always courteous and respectful of our needs while we lived through the construction.
I highly recommend Michael and his team at MRC. We did a home renovation Fall 2019. Quality of workmanship, customer service, design ideas, and professionalism were top-notch across the board. Also competitive pricing compared to other high end builders/renovators. The team at MRC (and the sub-contractors they work with) are problem solvers and finds solutions and the work is then constructed with precision care and quality…
