Banner Construction Sketch

Our Story

ban·ner (ban´er) – adj. 1. Unusually good or outstanding 2. Superior or high quality performance

Based on these principals, Banner Construction Company, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Jonathan Buchman. Jonathan began his career in heavy construction, where he excelled and was rapidly promoted from Field Supervisor to Assistant Project Manager within a year. At Modern Continental and Middlesex Corporation, he became one of the youngest managers to run complex jobs, overseeing construction on some of Boston’s notable landmarks, such as the Summer Street Bridge in South Boston, the East Milton Square Bridge and Newton’s new Riverside MBTA Station.

After 6 years in heavy construction, Jonathan felt it was time to embark on a new challenge and started his own Commercial and Industrial construction company. He soon earned a reputation for his superior quality of workmanship, running a meticulous site and being very customer service oriented. Jonathan was hired to oversee projects for top companies such as Comp USA, SMTC, Peter Elliot and Co and Equity Office Properties, building out mid-large commercial spaces. Other projects include a Veterinary Hospital and Medical and Retail buildings.

Jonathan built his first residential property in 2001. He discovered he had a passion for developing and building homes. He relished the challenge of finding the perfect piece of land and determining what style and shape of house would best enhance the natural topography of the landscape. Over the years, Jonathan has cultivated close relationships with highly regarded architects, designers, engineers and sub-contractors who have helped to deliver exceptional quality projects on time and within budget.

What people are saying

"I met Jonathan in 2000. We have worked on numerous commercial and residential projects together. Most of these projects have been very unique, challenging and demanding in their approval process and construction. All of these jobs were executed by Banner Construction, in the most attentive and professional manner.

Teamwork is essential during the design and construction phase. Banner uses very experienced and reliable subs who enjoy working together from one project to the next. This teamwork helps control construction costs and the quality of work produced is very high.

Banner Construction's management and coordination of sub's work is impressive and right on schedule. As an architect on most of Banner Construction's projects, I appreciate and value Jonathan's vision, loyalty and dedication to perfection."
