Formerly the Three Crowns Gift Shop, the building underwent a major renovation (a Design-Build project managed by Hamilton Stern!) and now houses offices, conference rooms, a workshop and storage areas – all featuring state-of-the-art design, materials and construction.

Hamilton Stern brings many years of construction management experience and achievement to the commercial construction process, a valuable asset that enables owners and design professionals to achieve their goals and enjoy the best value possible from the finished project.

After working for other construction firms in New York and out-of-state, in 2010 Justin Hamilton and Chris Stern formed their own construction management firm located in the Rochester suburb of Pittsford.

Friends, college classmates and professional colleagues, Justin and Chris share a commitment to quality craftsmanship, professional integrity and personal trust.

Justin is known for his creative approach to solving construction and engineering problems as they occur out in the field. Chris, in addition to his direct client responsibilities, has taken on a number of financial management and administrative duties for the firm.

Quality craftsmanship, professional integrity and personal trust are the core values on which Hamilton Stern’s foundation is based. Without these, no foundation is solid.

The Hamilton Stern approach is to achieve candor in its communications and openness in its relationships with all involved, all to achieve value-added status for the projects Hamilton Stern produces for its clients.

Of particular importance is safety for Hamilton Stern craftsmen and contractors. To ensure a safe workplace, key members of the senior staff have completed OSHA’s 30-hour program in work-site and worker safety. In addition, Hamilton Stern holds regularly scheduled in-service training sessions, keeping our employees and contractors aware of the latest rules, regulations and issues.

Hamilton Stern is designated by the Environmental Protection Agency as a lead-certified Renovation, Repair and Painting contractor for following lead-safe work practices.
