An idea for a company, from two college buddies, that grew strong and successful by rethinking how to design and construct buildings better.
A simple idea to work collaboratively and to listen closely to what a client needs. Utilize the best technologies. And engage the best talent. Always. That’s where over 25 years of friendship, curiosity and passion can take you.
Our roots are in restaurant and retail development, but we now work across multiple market segments. From banking, higher education, healthcare, and corporate offices, to complete commercial development projects – we’ve grown simply by helping our clients grow smart.
Menemsha stands alone in an industry crowded with companies claiming they can provide multiple or turnkey services. As a vertically integrated company, we truly specialize in each service we provide. Sharing expertise among our divisions has meant we’ve become the best in the industry. It’s that simple.
We started with Construction and quickly added Facility Survey services. Our clients asked for more. Since we’re very good listeners, we added Architecture and Interior Design. With all of these great businesses now within our family, we decided to create a Program Management Division for clients who wanted to leverage our expertise in orchestrating and navigating complex projects. Today, Menemsha’s Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) methodology links our diverse skill sets across one or all of our service lines. We know that shared knowledge between expert teams and resources drives better outcomes, sooner, and for less cost.
From a modest start in Los Angeles, and then Boston, we’ve grown into a nationwide team of diversely skilled professionals. Menemsha is committed to developing a peaceful and safe refuge for every project, large or small.
Let us know what you’re working on. We’ve got the team, the resources, and the drive to help you realize it. And yes, we’ve still got the curiosity and the passion.
President & CEO
For more than 25 years, John Daigle has made integration and collaboration the guiding principles for growth at Menemsha. His early adoption of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) created an internal community of specialists, including building experts, project managers, and design and facility survey professionals. This teamwork paved the way for successful coast-to-coast high-volume construction. John continues to offer the organization hands-on leadership while actively managing our Construction Services Division. A graduate of the University of Denver with a degree in Real Estate and Construction Management, John was named the 2005 Construction Executive of the Year by the Construction Financial Management Association.
Executive VP / Principal
Tom studied Real Estate and Construction Management at the University of Denver, where he also earned a degree in Business. Leveraging both academic and hands-on construction experience, he found a role at what was then a little-known coffee shop chain called Starbucks. Five years later, Tom departed his senior role to become a partner at Menemsha. Always keeping the client’s perspective at the forefront, he pioneered an innovative Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process for retail expansion. Working with fast-growing national restaurant and retail chains, he leveraged his Seattle experience to streamline the development process and to accelerate store openings. Later, bringing this strategy into the healthcare sector, he successfully applied a similar approach to dialysis centers, Lasik eye surgery clinics, and dental offices. Tom is a recognized industry leader in using technology to create an edge in commercial development, and is often asked to speak on the benefits of Integrated Project Development and synergistic retail rollouts.
