more about us
Island construction made the process so simple and streamlined from our very first meeting to handing us the keys. John is incredibly knowledgeable about all phases of the building process and was able to help us have a clear vision of the house every step of the way, there were no surprises! John and his wonderful team answered all of our questions, day or night. We cannot say enough good things about our experience!! We feel like we were able to build our dream home with our dream team!

"They made every vision we had come to life."
They have a wealth of experience and knowledge and a loyal team of fantastic subcontractors. John is hands-on throughout construction and always available for questions and revisions to make sure your dream home comes true. John is honest and reliable. Projects are finished on time and on budget. Island Construction is a class act – it’s no wonder they build so many houses in Elmhurst and often many on the same street. The quality of their work, along with their superior customer service makes it easy to recommend them to anyone!

"[they] make sure your dream home comes true."
He turned a terrible situation that was off the rails with another builder mid-project into an ABSOLUTE SUCCESS. I'm not sure where we would be without him and his team. My wife worked closely with Nicole on the key decisions to stay organized and we were back on schedule in no time. We are very happy with our new home and highly recommend Island Construction!!!

"We have COMPLETE TRUST in John Pembroke and Island Construction."
John embodies integrity, professionalism and a commitment to quality. It is exceedingly rare in today's world that you can build a business relationship based primarily on trust but that is par for the course with John! Once he commits to a budget and timeline it is something that can be counted on His dedication to his customers is unparalleled and he truly loves to see families living happily in the homes that he builds them. We've worked with other builders, but would never consider anyone but Island.
