  • Joe McCafferty and the entire Encore team are the definition of Professionalism. They are the only General Contractor that I would consider using in the DMV area and they have completed several restaurant projects for me on time and within budget. The professional approach at Encore Construction will keep me coming back project after project.

  • When Tatte decided to move into the DC Market we interviewed 4 General contractors in the area. As a former general contractor myself, I like to think I know the qualities to look for in selecting a construction partner. Encore, and President Joe McCafferty stood out as a no nonsense, user friendly, solutions minded partner to build our first café in the marketplace. Despite challenges associated with COVID-19, Encore kept their promise and delivered a beautiful new Café. Their team was thoughtful, considerate, and did an excellent job coordinating with Tatte as we learned how to manage a new café build from 500 miles away. We would recommend Encore to anyone looking for a trustworthy construction partner for their new project.

  • Encore was so accommodating through an occupied remodel project for an office of approximately 100 people.   They really helped us to navigate working through some tough decisions to reduce costs but still maintain and provide an outstanding final product.  Their team was patient and understanding as we worked through the value engineering process – which is never easy.  This helped keep us all on task to accomplish this work in a timely manner that met our budget and the final outcome – we were all very impressed and extremely happy with the new space.

  • What I find to be unique about Encore is their teamwork approach and their ability to solve problems. Their solutions are always in the best interest of the project, which really helps keep things on track.

  • I have been working with Encore for several years now and they have been my sole GC for the tri-state DC area.  Encore has completed upfit work in the Northern VA area, inside the District, as well as Maryland and I can honestly say that every job has been seamless. The only way I could achieve this type of success is by having strong partners like Encore.
