Who We Are

Incorporated in 1955 by founders Leroy Nickerson and Gerry O’Day, Nickerson & O’Day has an established tradition of providing honest, quality services to the people of Eastern and Central Maine. With more than 60 years of growth and experience in the construction business, Nickerson & O’Day has become an integral part of the extended greater-Bangor community.

Our philosophy is simple and old-fashioned:

  • Stick With What You Know
  • No Surprises to the Owner
  • Think Like the Owner (Listen)
  • Be Open, Honest and Complete

Our fervent adherence to these core principles has allowed us to prosper as Greater Bangor’s top commercial builder for over half a century, and boast a repeat business rate of 75%. In the past 27 years of business 100% of over 700 projects have come in under budget.

Nickerson & O’Day has one of the lowest bonding rates in the State of Maine and an annual volume of roughly $30 million. As the best rated firm in its 35-member workers compensation insurance trust, we enjoy an average 22% discount under the typical company’s insurance costs.
