EL Shea Builders & Engineers

For four generations and over 80 years, E. L. Shea has been active in shaping Ellsworth and the surrounding communities, offering diversity in project experience including residential, commercial, industrial, religious and educational construction.

In addition to general contracting, we provide the option of in-house engineering and professional services, construction management, and design build.

E. L. Shea is well capitalized and has the financial strength to undertake projects without any requirement for start-up funding. Bank references and financial information are available upon request. Our gross annual revenue is between 12 and 17 million dollars. With a professional team of four in the office and a field work force of 35, we have the ability to execute multiple projects with skilled personnel.

As a General Contractor

E.L. Shea completes projects on both a competitive bid and negotiated contract basis. For many negotiated projects, we are involved early on in the design phase as a consultant to the owner and the designer. This allows us to provide the owner with valuable information as the project evolves, such as preliminary cost estimates, material availability, construct-ability, and project scheduling.

With a Design-Build Project

E.L. Shea takes an active role in design process and also acts as the primary builder.
In a typical Design-Build project, the builder accepts the sole point of responsibility, and the architect works under the builder. However, we have worked in several different capacities in this process, many times providing engineering services to an owner-selected architect. Our goal is to find a way in which the owner feels comfortable with both their building and design team, and recognizes all of the benefits that the Design-Build delivery method has to offer.

As Construction Manager

We advise our clients from the beginning of the design phase through the end of the construction. Generally, we would also act as the primary building contractor. This process allows the owner to get important advice and services from the builder that they can incorporate into their design.

Both Kenneth and Robert Shea are registered Professional Engineers, while Kenneth is also a registered Surveyor and licensed site evaluator. They have the expertise to perform Civil, Structural and Geotechnical design. We are also proficient at AutoCAD, which enables us to draft our own plans and details. We serve Washington, Hancock and Penobscot counties. For more information visit
