About Us

Jamie McKenna

Jamie McKenna is a native of Lake Placid, NY and graduated from Middlebury College with a degree in Art & Architecture and Environmental Studies. Following graduation, Jamie spent the first two years of his career in Spain and Sweden, traveling extensively throughout Europe.  He was eventually drawn back to the Green Mountain State and worked at his alma mater for three years.  Along the way, he met Dave and Marcel and their friendship quickly found common ground.  Jamie is passionate about Design and Build construction, spaces that are purposefully built, combining aesthetic appeal and utility.  His background in art, architecture, and environmental studies brings a special component to the company.  Jamie, his wife, Brit, and son, Leo, live in Cornwall, Vermont.


David Rossiter

David Rossiter grew up surrounded by his family’s contracting business.  From a young age, he knew that building would be a lifelong passion.  When he was 18, his love of carpentry coupled with his entrepreneurial spirit motivated a move to Boulder, CO where he opened a successful interior Design + Build firm.  In 2009, the opportunity to work with one of Chicago’s most accomplished designers inspired a new enthusiasm that would shape his outlook on the trade.  In 2013, David’s girlfriend accepted a position as a professor at Middlebury College and the couple is happily building a life together in Middlebury, VT.


Marcel Leduc

Marcel Leduc is our native Vermonter, our master carpenter, and is an artisan in every sense of the word.  He is truly a student of the process; his passion has led him around the country and the world with successes as a brewer, a winemaker and a chef.  Now settled in his home state of Vermont, Marcel is pushing the paradigm of traditional craftsmanship with an evolving approach to meeting modern demands.  Marcel’s depth of experience and insistence on perfection is unquestionably one of the cornerstones of our Design and Build success.  Marcel and his wife Marie live in Salisbury, VT with their daughter Grace.


Olivia Tubio

Olivia Tubio is the newest member of our team, a recent graduate from Middlebury College with a degree in Art and Architectural Studies. In addition to her undergraduate education, Olivia has experience in exhibition design for small museums. Her interest in design strengthened after studying a year abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she was exposed to art and architecture that now inspires her work. Olivia is primarily interested in designing in a way that better accommodates the varying bodies and cultural identities that interact with the built world. When she is not working, she enjoys visiting antique shops, making art, attending concerts, and “conducting research” at various bars and breweries. Olivia and her 23 25 houseplants are thriving in the Old North End of Burlington, Vermont.
