About The Holland Companies
With more than 100 years of combined experience in the design, engineering and construction industries, Holland Development and M. Holland & Sons Construction have managed hundreds of residential and commercial projects. It offers a unique combination of services to buyers by providing historical designs, sound re-engineering and quality construction in highly sought-after and difficult building environments like the Back Bay, South End and Beacon Hill.
Holland Development was founded in response to the market need for high-quality residential construction in affluent urban Boston areas. It is a direct offshoot of M. Holland & Sons Construction, Inc., a 40-year-old family-owned-and-managed general construction company and its resident design and engineering professionals. Its mission is to provide high-quality, historically designed residential housing.
The Holland Companies shares a singular commitment to total excellence. For devotees of fine craftsmanship, its level of quality and adherence to time-honored architectural traditions is unrivaled. Its combined staff of master craftsmen and design and engineering professionals shares the same concern for perfection and authenticity as it has from inception, with the ultimate focus on client satisfaction.
