    We demand a high standard of care for quality construction. We are sought out as experts in design/build construction with owners and architects because of our understanding of pre-development, design, and construction phases.

    1987

    After 25 years of construction knowledge and firsthand experience passed on from father to sons, Bowman Bros Inc. became incorporated as a second generation construction company. Maine National Bank approved the formation of the corporation with Philip Bowman as President, Brian as Vice President, and Kevin as Treasurer and Secretary. Three office spaces were set up in the basement of Philip and Ethelyn’s home in St. Albans, and after 7 years, they moved to their present location in Newport.
