SCOTT R. SEVON CGP, GMB, CGR, CAPS

 

Scott Sevon - Chicago RemodelingScott's ascent to becoming a Custom homebuilder and remodeler actually began when he was a child growing up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. His father, an accomplished carpenter who now serves as the vice president of construction at Sevvonco, Inc. often took a young Scott to his construction sites. "I guess you could say from an early age, building has been in my blood. I went to college, even thought about law school, but in the end, I decided I really wanted a career in construction."

 

While working for a northwest suburban builder as a project manager, Scott began building homes on his own. Ultimately, he decided to leave the builder and on June 9, 1983, Sevvonco, Inc. was born. Since then, Scott and his team have built well over 260 homes with a cumulative total over $310,000,000.00. Although many of these have been high-end residences located primarily in the North and Northwest suburbs, there have been exceptions.

 

"At one point or another, we've built homes ranging in size from 1,400 square feet to 30,000 square feet and prices ranging from $150,000.00 to over $5.5 million and in locations from Oakbrook to Huntley," says Scott.

 

While Scott is known primarily for his design/build custom homes, there is an ever growing design/build remodel division that takes on projects of any size. Sevvonco has remodeled, renovated and built many additions over the years.

 

Scott is very active in the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago, for which he serves on many committees. He is also involved in the National Association of Home Builders Remodelers Council, and Vice Chairman of the NAHBR Green sub-committee. He is dedicated to maintaining standards and healthy practices throughout the building industry and is absolutely fanatical about professionalism. His peers seem to gravitate toward him as he is always being consulted by industry professionals and is continually elected to positions of influence throughout the industry. The Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago awarded Scott Builder of the Year in 2004 and 2006 Remodeler of the Year. Scott was also awarded 2006 NAHB Graduate Master Builder of the Year.

 

Scott is also very active in Green and Healthy building projects. On these projects, Scott works with the American Lung Association and Health House. In 2001, Sevvonco built Illinois’ first, award winning, American Lung Association Health House, in Glen Ellyn. Sevvonco, Inc. is also the first ever Illinois American Lung Association approved builder. Most recently, Scott was a consultant for the Museum of Science and Industry “Smart House: Green and Wired” that recently opened on the museum property.

 

In the fall of 2008, Scott teamed up with Remodel One to create MAW LLC and become a managing partner in Belgravia Plus LLC, a renovation firm specializing in renovation within the city limits of Chicago.

 

Scott is a strong advocate of the green movement and takes every opportunity to advance the professionalism of the remodeling industry.
