HISTORY

E. Turgeon Construction Corporation has been building commercial, industrial and educational buildings since 1896. The Founder, Evangeliste Turgeon, was joined by his sons, John, Edward, George and Henry in 1931. At that time, the Turgeon firm undertook larger construction projects and many schools, hospitals, public buildings and industrial projects in Southeastern New England were built by this firm.
In 1946, at the age of 76, Evangeliste retired and turned the business over to his sons. Edward remained the active President until 1976.

In April of 1973, Francis E. Ducharme joined E. Turgeon Construction Corporation as Vice President. Frank worked closely with Mr. Turgeon, handling cost control and construction operations for the company. Upon Mr. Turgeon’s retirement, Frank became Owner and President of the firm. As President, Frank has remained personally involved in all aspects of ongoing projects, insuring the level of skill, responsibility and integrity of the Turgeon name.

​Bradley K. Draycott joined the E. Turgeon Construction Corporation as a Project Manager in 1987. He later became Vice President and partner in the firm. As Vice President, he oversees project scheduling, coordination and procurement services. Prior to joining E. Turgeon, Brad was Senior Project Manager for Bryant University. 

​At Bryant, he developed and oversaw the construction of many large and small-scale projects. Having served as the owner’s representative, Mr. Draycott developed a keen understanding of the owner’s and user’s concerns and priorities. His sensitivity to these concerns has allowed him to better serve our clients. Brad is also a LEED Green Associate.

David Ducharme joined E. Turgeon in 1994. David worked on site gaining valuable estimating and planning experience. In 1997, he joined the office team and was later promoted to partner. His role expanded in 2001 to full-time Project Manager where his responsibilities include estimating, project cost analysis, contract administration, and project planning and scheduling.

Christopher Ducharme joined E. Turgeon in 1994. Chris worked on site gaining valuable estimating, building, coordinating, supervision and planning experience. In 2000, he joined the office team and became partner of the firm. His role expanded in 2004 to full-time Project Manager where his responsibilities include estimating, project cost analysis, contract administration, planning and scheduling. Chris is also proficient in AutoCAD and virtual rendering.

E. Turgeon Construction Corporation has been providing General Construction, Design/Build and Construction Management Services since 1977. During this time, we have developed an approach that is both professional and non-adversarial; an approach that has been most effective in serving the interests of our clients.


TESTIMONIALS

Coastway Community Bank

Just a quick note to thank you again for Turgeon's effort on behalf of Coastway Community Bank.

In looking back, one of the more aggressive goals we had for the year was the construction and completion of two new offices, in Cranston and in Lincoln. We had never before built two in one year and the level of concrn was high.

I am pleased to say, however, that the experience of building these two locations with Turgeon as our lead contractor has been the difference maker.

Accomplishing all of this would be an indiction of success on its own, but the added fact that these two projects were completed on time AND on budget further illustates the skills of Turgeon.

The best word I can use to describe E. Turgeon Construction is “Partner.”

Frank Ducharme and his team worked with us every step of the way on the renovations of an 115,000 square foot building that was transformed into our World Headquarters.

From the initial meeting thru the receipt of the Certificate of Occupancy we always had the comfort of knowing that Turgeon was there to help us maximize our project’s budget.

The outcome of this project speaks for itself:
on time and on budget!

Without hesitation, we would recommend
Turgeon to anyone seeking a construction manager.
