New Home Construction

We at Velsen Homes construct homes and commercial spaces with the utmost quality and integrity, through careful planning and communication.

We always put the customer’s needs first. We are very concerned with the health of the occupants and environment therefore we offer as much, or as little environmental friendly advice as wanted.

We follow the LEED standards and implement as much as possible.

Every project stands alone in design and construction, so we give special attention to each individual project.

Our goal for every project is to bring it in on time and on schedule.
