Glen Builders closes doors after 35 years

North Conway construction firm ceased operation March 2

Glen Builders Inc., a construction firm based in North Conway for some 35 years, has ceased doing business, according to a statement released March 2 by the firm.

In the statement CEO David Miller said, “As of Friday, March 2, Glen Builders, Inc., based in North Conway, N.H., has suspended daily operations and is currently exploring ways to restructure its business model. I want to thank the entire Glen Builders staff and our clients for their years of loyalty and patronage. We appreciate everyone’s patience during this period of transition.”

According to The Conway Daily Sun, the company was founded 35 years ago by William Rice and Ed Poliquin. Miller joined the company in 1988 and bought it in 2008.

Other principals include Charlie Allen, vice president of construction management; Matthew Howard, vice president of business development; and Todd Shiers, excavation superintendent.

In recent years, Glen Builders worked with Great Bridge Properties LLC of Manchester, the 30-unit Conway Pines Senior Living Apartments opened in 2016 off Poliquin Drive and the 32-unit Conway Pines Apartments, which opened in 2012, the newspaper reported.

The company also performed work for the Eastern Slope Inn and Attitash Mountain Village.

Among its most notable local projects was Phase One of the Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore and the Kearsarge Brook pool and amenities building, said Cranmore General Manager and President Ben Wilcox.

Glen Builders also was doing site work at the $14 million, three-story, 68-room Great Glen Hotel under construction on a bluff overlooking the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road. The general contractor for the project is Martini Northern LLC of Portsmouth.
