We greatly value our relationships with clients, architects, designers, and subcontractors. Working collaboratively, we guarantee superior results.

I had the pleasure to work with Pape Construction when we did a ground up build of our modern style house in 2014/15. The experience was a complete pleasure. We were focused on a rapid build to not miss a summer and we were delighted we were able to move in after a 9 month ground up build when other builders said it couldn’t be done in less than 14 months.

I would highly recommend Pape Construction. Phil and his team were honest and easy to work with. Throughout the building process they had creative and practical solutions to issues that came up and were readily able to meet the exacting standards our NYC architect had. They were also great about sticking to the budget and offering cost effective alternatives – the final cost of the house came in below the bottom end of our budget range (which based on discussions with others is unheard of). They were also wonderful about addressing follow up matters after completion of the house. If I build another house in the Hamptons I would definitely use Phil again!

We embarked on a project of life—time (I wouldn’t recommend anyone do this more than once). This was a complicated ground up construction project that had complexities around proximity to water, access for heavy equipment, etc. Phil struck us from the beginning as trustworthy and honest. His quote was clear as to what it covered and what it didn’t. He worked very well with the architect team and was flexible around changing plans.

I found him to be honest and forthcoming. Easy to deal with who approaches problems head on with a sheer desire to get us the result we were looking for. His advice was not always what was in his best interest and he would not hesitate to steer us to a more cost effective process, material or workaround. His team is professional and responsive. He is a pleasure to work with and his work product is outstanding.

My wife and I first met Phil in 2010 as we reviewed builders for our new home in the Estate Section of Southampton. As we sought to build a modern colonial home designed by our Pennsylvania architects, we found that Phil was more than willing to collaborate with our architects and execute our design for the way we live. Phil is affable, professional and most importantly a perfectionist who cares deeply about the homes he builds. This is reflected in his attention to detail, his commitment to delivering an exceptional product and his emphasis on form and function in building design. We have been so pleased with our home that we recently completed a thoughtful renovation of our first floor to convert a gym into an additional guest bedroom suite. We highly recommend Phil and his Pape Construction team for your new build or remodel as the images on his website are a testimonial to his excellence.

My experience with Pape Construction has been very favorable. Phil Pape is a talented builder with a refined aesthetic who is as concerned with the quality of his jobs as the client is. When the inevitable unforeseen issue arises, one can take comfort in knowing it will be raised, addressed and resolved the right way rather than being ignored or hidden.

The quality of Pape Construction’s work is consistently exceptional and the company (and Phil himself) is very responsive. In my opinion, Pape’s prices are fair considering the quality of the work. Anecdotally, Pape is the first builder I’ve ever used who:

– Perfectly site-protects
– Restores disturbed rooms to original condition, items exactly re—placed
– Leaves no punch list items undone

All evidencing Pape’s attention to detail.

We had a great experience building our house in Southampton with Pape Construction. From the very beginning they helped us to engineer the cost so that the end result stayed within our budget. The team was efficient, collaborative and creative. Communication was excellent. Phil Pape not only provides great skills as a contractor, but he also has a great sense of design and brings a creative spirit to the process that improved the final product. He built us a solid and beautiful house, within budget and on time!

Working with Pape Construction was a wonderful experience from start to finish. From planning to execution, each step was flawless. Change orders were never a problem and the finished product was delivered on time, within budget and exceeded our expectations. We have recommended Pape Construction to our friends and each and every one of them has had the same experience. Joe and

Pape Construction delivered exceptional results during the gut renovation of our Hamptons home, blending a deep technical understanding of our construction challenges with an extraordinarily keen eye for the design details that truly distinguish the final results. Phil was also transparent throughout the process and partnered with us to stay within our budget. Having worked with several builders now, I can attest to the extremely unique combination of skill, creativity, and integrity that distinguishes Pape Construction.

Pape Construction transformed our Southampton Village home beautifully from top to bottom and built an amazing outdoor living space and pool. Their quality, creativity and service are outstanding.

Nearly seven years ago, we had a challenging project in Southampton Village that involved collaborating with a modular manufacturer out of PA. I was so happy to meet Phil because I could see he was intellectually excited by the project, unlike other contractors I had met. Phil went above and beyond, traveling to rural PA to see the production facility, and putting up with unbelievable delays, and then focusing on all the on-site details to transform it into a lovely village home we have enjoyed since. His tradesmen were also top-notch and his communication was excellent. He was such a pleasure to work with!
