Corporate Capability

Tobin Construction, Inc., established in 1988, provides general contracting services to commercial and residential clients throughout the Washington, DC Metropolitan area.  We offer a full range of services, including, but not limited to, custom construction of new homes and commercial establishments, commercial and residential renovations, minor to major emergency residential and commercial repair and maintenance, and, through established sub-contractor relationships, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC support.  We take pride in delivering our services and products on-schedule and within budget. We are bonded, licensed in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, and carry general liability and worker's compensation insurance.

We are members of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) (Chesapeake Chapter), Northern Virginia Building Industry Association (NVBIA), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).  Fewer than 10 percent of contractors hold such memberships.  This keeps us current with developments and trends in the construction industry, allowing us to serve our clients better.


Tobin Construction, Inc., offers services that support every aspect of a construction project, from project conceptualization through project completion.  We offer design/build services through relationships with structural engineers and architects.  We also provide in-house permit expediting services that can greatly reduce the lead time between contract signing and commencement of work.

Our Business Philosophy and Mission Statement

Tobin Construction, Inc., provides high quality construction and construction-related services, delivered on time and within budget, to residential and commercial clients.  We want our clients to consider us a trusted partner throughout the project, and turn to us for advice and support through each project phase.  We offer employment for a highly skilled and dependable workforce that grows in knowledge as it works, and interacts in a safe, healthy, and rewarding work environment.

Customer Quotes

"I would like to comment on the beautiful work done by Mamikon in a difficult situation. He is a first rate craftsman and always does more than expected to produce a perfect end product. . . Thank you for Paul too! He always takes care of my house as if it were his. And Frank? Where would I be without Frank."
"Scott, as usual, has been very helpful to us. We very much appreciate Scott’s attentiveness and helpfulness. He’s a great credit to your company.""
"Thank you for letting Steve manage our project. His good reputation precedes him.""
"All the work that Tobin Construction has done looks great. I am in the process of working with you for some additional work that I would like to get done."
"It looks wonderful. Your team really did an excellent job turning our hazy ideas into a beautiful, functional room. We were particularly impressed with Scott. He has been unfailingly responsive, attentive, and professional—and he does outstanding work, too! Thank you also for your support and guidance along the way, Tim.""
"The work looks great! Andy and Ivan did an excellent job!""
"At the conclusion of my garage project, I would like to convey to the management of Tobin Construction my happiness with the work done.  It took me a year of looking around to find someone to do this job of rebuilding my garage from the inside out, with careful attention to detail and proper replication of the original.  As your project manager can tell you, I like to have things done as fundamentally correct as possible.  My engineering and construction background give me probably too much food for thought, and considering that there is often more than one way to reach a correct solution, he has been extremely patient in honoring my requests.  He’s always done what he said he would do, and I appreciate that.  Unfortunately, those are very rare qualities in the construction business atmosphere in the Metro DC area. Most companies have so much work they don’t need to deal with the ones that are a challenge.  He gave me the sort of service one would see in a much different market ...  I just wanted to convey my happiness with both the service and the end product."
"Thank you so much for all your effort and patience.  It is lovely to have the porch finished and to be using it before it turns cold."
"... [Our] mutual friend Nancy communicated my sentiments already to you, but your team did an absolutely fantastic job on my project.  Everyone was 100% reliable, detail-oriented, and skilled.  I couldn’t have been more pleased with both the process and the end-result.  I look forward to working with your company in the future."
"Many thanks for your assistance with the repairs of our home in Mt. Vernon.  I would like to compliment Andy on his attitude, work ethic and helpfulness.  He tried each day to accomplish several tasks and did so with a cheerful disposition and can-do spirit.  I would not hesitate to contact Tobin in the future for further work based on my experiences with you and your crew."
"Frank, thank you for the excellent follow-up service."
"Our porch — you should see how beautiful it is."
"[We] want to thank you and all of the Tobin team that worked on our house.  It is spectacular and is exactly the home we envisioned."
"I would like to express my satisfaction with your company in the construction/finishing of my basement. I have received compliments on the basement and the workmanship. Of particular note, I would like to thank your project manager for his dedication to the job and superior customer service.  In this day, good customer service is the exception rather than the rule.  It was a pleasure working with him on this project.  I would also like to give special thanks to Mamikon Meliksetyan.  Mamikon is a true craftsman who is a perfectionist at his craft. Mamikon always went the extra mile to ensure the job was done right and he would accept nothing less than perfection!  Please give my thanks to the entire team for a job well done."
"[T]he work has been completed within the terms and conditions of the contract documents ...  It should be noted that the restaurant was in operation the day of our visit, and we were told that it had been in operation for three days. We also must add that we found Tobin Construction ...  to be most cooperative on this project, and their workmanship was excellent."
