My first project with Shiels Builders resulted in the successful renovation of the former Schweitzer Center in Great Barrington. This was a challenging project, due to the removal of a large barn space and its effect on the rest of the building, but Mike and his carpenters handled any and all aspects of the job with dependability, confidence and skill. Shiels Builders hold themselves to a high standard, offering quality work of their own and expecting the same high quality from their subcontractors. I was so satisfied with the Schweitzer Center renovation that I contracted them for a new barn building, completed in the fall of 2019. I couldn’t be happier with the result and experience, and highly recommend them for any building project.

As architects, we work with many builders, and can easily say that Mike Shiels is among our favorites to work with. He is a careful builder, with a consistent attention to detail. He is organized, his job site is always tidy, and his advance planning means no wasted trips to the lumberyard for forgotten supplies. He goes the extra mile for his clients - all of whom will attest to his thoroughness, courtesy and honesty. A pleasure to work with!

I can highly recommend Shiels Builders to anyone who will undergo a construction project. Our new building project was huge, and from the very beginning Mike Shiels performance was exemplary. He was a good coordinator, he was responsive and available on any day, he had excellent rapport with the sub-trades. The job site was always neat. I am confident in recommending Shiels Builders and do so without hesitation.
