Every year, Dewson Construction  completes about 40 high-end renovation projects, including historic structures, and builds about six new houses. The company also purchases and restores distressed houses as upscale rental properties and develops small unique land parcels.

During boom times, the company worked in Wilmington and close-in neighborhoods, but during the downturn it has extended its reach to the Delaware beaches and New Jersey shore. Timothy Dewson says the company’s high-end attorney, doctor, and business owner clients are being cautious and are scaling back spending. An in-house architect and interior designer help clients design smaller projects, and the company works with a handful of local architects on larger jobs, often helping the client build a team that can bring their vision to life.

Design Guides  “We help people understand all their options, apply price points, and narrow their focus from the big picture,” Timothy Dewson says.
