about us

Established in 2008, New Blue Construction is a unique and exceptional builder located in the heart of the the resurgent and historic Southside area of Chattanooga, Tenn. Powered by a diverse and talented staff, we focus on a wide array of renovation and architect-driven custom building projects.

Whether for home or business, full renovation or new construction, New Blue has built its reputation through dedicated craftsmanship to our projects and unwavering accountability to our clients. In partnership with some of our area's premier design professionals, we craft each client's vision one stone at a time.


New Blue brings best-practice construction methods together with an artisan's creative vision to all of our varied residential projects. We renovate old spaces and make them new again; we craft ground-up additions, second stories, and custom homes; and we are uniquely capable in areas of historical renovation and architectural woodworking.

Our general contracting and construction management services are supported daily by our staff of craftsman and carpenters. New Blue also features divisions in fine finishing and paint services, finishing every aspect of our most important projects in order to command quality and accountability at every turn.

At New Blue Construction our residential construction services are just the beginning of what we can build for you this year.


For custom commercial construction and build-outs or renovations with custom details, New Blue understands the requirements of being well planned, on time, and on budget for all our commercial work.

New Blue’s crew — from hands-on managers with real field experience to master carpenters interacting daily with our clients—we offer a competitive edge over large commercial contractors, bringing the personal touch of a one-on-one craftsman.

Teamed with Chattanooga’s brightest design talents, New Blue has built projects ranging from custom condominiums to large-scale commercial restorations, hair salons to artisan glass studios, trendy restaurants to timeless sanctuaries.

New Blue has completed Earth Craft, LEED and NAHB training in green construction methods and techniques, and brings an understanding of green building and a love of our environment to all of our commercial projects.


The meticulous care required for an historic renovation is hard to come by, but New Blue’s team of restoration-trained staff is well versed. Whether restoring a 110-year-old estate in North Georgia or a 100-year-old building located on historic Main Street, we are passionate about restoring history with the utmost accuracy. New Blue provides a staff eager to take on even the most challenging restoration projects, restoring iconic historic sites to their proud original forms.


New Blue's paint division offers full interior and exterior painting services. But our paint department goes beyond the traditional scope. To ensure quality and accountability, we finish all our custom woodworking in-house to help you paint the picture you envision for your finished space.


New Blue Construction offers a diverse set of architectural woodworking projects. Our skilled crew is trained in period restoration as well as classic techniques. But it doesn’t just stop at the exterior; the interior of your project speaks volumes about who you are. That’s why New Blue offers custom woodworking, and in-house craftsmanship. We construct and finish your architectural woodworking, whether custom cabinets, vanities, built-ins, wood countertops or custom millwork.
