Our family owned company began in 2002 specializing in historic home renovation. Our mission was to create affordable homes for first-time homebuyers and families. As our team and client base began to grow, we expanded into commercial and residential design build. Our building roots run deep. Joshua Weir, president of Transform, comes from a family of contractors and builders. His great grandfather, John Ettore, was a Masonry contractor on the Laveque Tower in the 1920’s. Joshua’s grandfather, Don Ettore, started a development company that eventually became Qualstan Builders, which consistently ranked among the top four home builders in Columbus during the 80’s and 90’s. Joshua began his career in construction in 1996 working in sales for Pulte Homes, and in 2002 he started Transform Construction. Everett Thompson, Vice President of Transform started in construction in the late 1980’s working for his Father’s company, Thompson Brothers Construction. In 2005 Everett joined Transform Construction. Over the years, Joshua & Everett, along with their team, have experienced Transform’s evolution from a small two-man operation to nine project managers, and several ofﬁce staff. Although we have grown signiﬁcantly over the years, we have remained true to our original commitment to high quality construction, a great client experience and competitive pricing. Both partners have three generations of building experience behind them. Most recently Transform has expanded. We now have three divisions, several new project managers, as well as new office staff to service you more effectively.
From the beginning we have had a desire to serve our clients, our community and give back as we grew. We have been involved with multiple non-profit projects in the city. We have bought, designed, rebuilt lower income housing in the Short North and sold properties below market value to clients below the median income level. We believe in people, investing in people, taking care of people, showing others that they really matter. It has been our goal to go above and beyond the quality of our craft and leave an impact with every client and contractor that we work with. The kind of impact that leaves people feeling cared for, considered and valued. It’s our passion to leave every person better off than when we first met them, this will certainly happen through our process and our product, but also through the integrity of what we do and how we do it. As a company we give 10% of net profits to nonprofit charities to reinvest and build into high impact causes.
