Meet Alan McNea and Damien Irwin of I & M Construction

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alan McNea and Damien Irwin.

Damien and Alan of I & M Construction have been building luxurious new homes and elegant commercial spaces for over 20 years as general contractors, and have combined for over 40 years of construction experience. Their commitment to unparalleled quality and service has made their projects synonymous with luxury homes and buildings. They believe that home builders should infuse the homes they build with the personalities of their owners. They also offer buyers the ability to customize their new home from the ground up by choosing from thousands of extraordinary options- both structural and decorative.

As a renowned quality project builder, I & M Construction, goes beyond exceptional quality, value, and customer service to create a lifestyle that is rich in beauty, comfort, and luxury. It is why they are one of Chicago’s leading builders of quality projects. Not only do they build new construction; they remodel existing structures into stunning new ones and construct versatile commercial buildings for a variety of uses. From single-family homes to large commercial/residential buildings, no project is too big or too small. I & M Construction is ready, willing and able to conquer any construction needs that are presented.

The team at I & M Construction is proud to offer new projects that are Energy Star Certified and built in a sustainable, environmentally friendly and green way. Through a whole-building approach outlined by the U.S Green Building Council, they have prioritized sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality that their clients are looking for. After all, enjoying your home should not put a burden on the natural surroundings that you love so much. They believe that every effort to conserve their planet counts, so I & M Construction, does and will continue to do what is necessary to leave the slightest carbon footprint on our beautiful earth.

I & M started in high-end, custom, single-family homes, and that tradition of detail continues on all of their projects. They understand their clients are building their home around their lifestyle, needs, concerns, and budget. They bring that same customer service-driven approach to commercial construction as well, assisting their commercial clients in project budgeting, design, and construction execution.

Their Development team has established numerous residential and commercial real estate deals, sometimes all rolled into one. They leverage their relationships to identify and execute projects in Chicagoland’s best neighborhoods. Doing all of their exhaustive research in the preparation stage allows them to ensure a prosperous venture for all. I & M can also help put home owners in contact with reputable lenders or private financiers to assist in the construction process. I & M Construction is one of the preeminent luxury home builders in the Chicagoland area and strives to provide the highest quality products and services in the custom home building industry.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No, during the economy burst and resulting real estate crash in 2008 was tough on business. Banks stopped all payments and no one could get a mortgage. We had to change our approach and find a way to keep everyone around until the end.
