New construction is a blank canvas, allowing you to build for high performance and sustainability.

Building a new home may be one of the most exciting journeys anyone can undertake. Building a new commercial structure can be equally exciting and challenging. Working with the right builder helps make the process a great experience.

At Taggart Construction we have built a range of new homes in a variety of designs – from a brick Greek Revival home in an urban setting to a lakefront home inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. We will work with your architect or you may wish to consider the design services offered by our architect and design staff.

Living and working on the Maine coast, we understand the unique stresses that the New England environment can place on a home or office building. High performance, energy efficiency and occupant health are all part of our sustainable best building practices.
