With years of experience in the residential remodeling industry, Arkwright Construction is proud to offer the highest quality construction services in Chicago and nearby areas.



Dane Stevenson grew up in Maryland renovating and remodelling houses with his dad who specialised in high-end millwork and carpentry. One could say that Dane has been doing this line of work his whole life.

Technically, he has been in the construction industry for 18 years. Dane started Arkwright Construction in January 2012, in an effort to continue his passion for residential remodelling. Dane has a degree in Leadership and Organisation Behaviour from Northwestern University.

With years of experience, hundreds of clients and successful partnerships with subcontractors and suppliers, Arkwright Construction has grown to be a leader in the high-end remodelling industry in the Chicago area.





Dane’s team at Arkwright did a fantastic job. They helped with everything starting from design work based on reference photos, to construction and installation. Everything went smoothly and the team was ready for every issue we ran across. The work was high quality, on time, and on budget.

Dane and his crew were incredible. They were never a minute late each day for 2 months and did an incredible job on our living/kitchen remodel. His expertise and craftsmanship were top notch and his knowledge on all the details was very impressive. We hired Arkwright after a very bad experience with a different contractor. Needless to say, our experience with Dane was above and beyond and we look forward to hiring them again for a master bedroom/bath remodel in the future.

I could not recommend Dane and the Arkwright team more. They recently installed a gas fireplace, built in shelves, and bench seating in our front room, and it could not be more perfect. A few key things stood out about Arkwright:

Kristin Barnett

I would - and already have - highly recommend Arkwright Construction. Dane Stevenson was engaged on the project from the planning stages of a new kitchen, all the way through the end of the project. His team of craftsmen were punctual, diligent, careful, and - perhaps best of all - able to problem-solve when confronted with unexpected challenges working in a 90+ year old building. They were a terrific team to work with; even the building engineer and his team were deeply impressed with the level and quality of workmanship which never varied over the course of a four-month project, and the care that was taken to protect the common spaces in the building. If I could give them more stars, I would!

Sara Beazley

We have previously used Dane’s team for our full kitchen remodel, powder room refresh, a number of miscellaneous projects and are currently having them redo our basement (including adding carpeting, a wet bar and a wine cellar). Dane originally came recommended by a designer we used and we found him to be very professional and trustworthy relative to past contractors (hence why we keep using him for new projects). Dane’s team is terrific too - always very courteous and respectful.


Dane and Arkwright Construction did a complete redesign/remodel of my kitchen with amazing results. My vision was listened to and carried out in amazing detail. They exceeded my expectations with their responsiveness, attention to detail, and workmanship. I would definitely use Arkwright Construction again!

Mia Morris

Dane and his team did an amazing job on our renovation. We wanted a high end job and that is what he delivered us. Dane also came up with some interesting solutions as well. We had a powder room that had ugly access panels and Dane made them almost disappear. He was always easy to reach and he had the same crew working our job from start to finish. All might sound too good to be true....but it is!

John Conroy

Dane and Arkwright are terrific. They installed a new roof and replaced a deck for us. They also addressed some water damage. They’ve done smaller projects for us as well. Their quality of work is terrific. Dane is very knowledgeable. His workers and he are very conscientious, cleaning up nightly during an extended project. Our projects were completed on time and within budget. This company’s level of service is exceptional. I highly recommend them for any project you have.

Lesli Falk

These guys are fantastic! I have worked with many contractors throughout my 10+ years in the interior design business and have never found a group as amazing as Arkwright! They are diligent to make sure their projects are finished on time and on budget and their priority is to always provide attentive customer service and top-quality craftsmanship on all my projects! I highly recommend them to anyone looking to do any kind of interior or exterior work!

Julie Dunfee Designs

I am a kitchen and bath designer and have worked with many contractor teams during my 15 years' in business. I had the pleasure of meeting Dane and his crew on a recent project and was impressed by both his professionalism and by the quality of the work completed. Both Dane and his team were a pleasure to work with and always responsive. He took a solutions oriented approach to a couple of small hiccups that we had and was an advocate for the integrity of the design which as I designer I very much appreciate. I am looking forward to working with him on future projects.

The Kitchen Studio of Glen Ellyn

I was impressed and thrilled with Dane and his team. They did beautiful work and were always on time and very easy to work with. I would strongly recommend Arkwright Construction. My remodel was very high end and required skill and talent.

Penny Sirott

Arkwright is great to work with. Dane manages his projects, sets expectations and budgets. This makes our job much easier. Dane was great in communicating project timelines and deadlines. And the end result was beautiful. We look forward to working with Dane again on future projects.

Davis Audio & Video

We interviewed several contractors to make a custom wall unit that would house our large vinyl record collection as well as television equipment and personal belongings. Within a few minutes of our first meeting we knew Dane and Arkwright Construction were the perfect team for the job. They immediately showed passion and excitement for our project, even though it was slightly smaller than some of their typical jobs. Throughout the entire process the team maintained total professionalism while keeping us informed and part of the decision making process. We are thrilled with how the unit turned out in our space and look forward to enjoying this piece for years to come. Would definitely recommend Arkwright to anyone in the market for custom work, remodeling or general contract services.

Jennifer D.

We used Arkwright to replace our front deck and spruce up some hardscaping around the deck. Dane and his team were very professional and exceeded our expectations throughout the project. Dane was very responsive and understanding of our needs. It was a pleasure working with Dane and his team. I would highly recommend Arkwright.


We have been a client of Arkwright construction for almost 5 years. They have done an excellent job on projects of all sizes - from fixing water damage to custom shelves to a new roof top deck. We have uniformly happy with the results. Dane brings a level of professionalism and reliability to an industry where it sometimes hard to find.

Josh M

Dane was very knowledgable and easy to work with. My deck looks great !!!! I would highly recommend Arkwright for your next project.

Silvia Pelini

We recently did a bath remodel with Arkwright and are very pleased with the final product. They are timely and professional and met or exceeded all of our, and the client's, expectations. The entire process from bidding to completion was without complication, and we would highly recommend them!

Brianne Bishop Design

Dane was the general contractor for a co-op apartment project in the Drake Tower for which I was the architect. I had a wonderful time working with Dane. He was always genial, and embodied “grace under pressure.” Working in an existing structure is often more difficult than new construction, and Dane was a great communicator, very schedule-conscious, and a great listener. Our client was extremely happy with the outcome, and I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again.

Howells Architecture + Design

I am the Principal at Jason Moore and Assoc, a full service design firm based in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. A good deal of our work involves construction and renovation specification and oversight. Arkwright Construction came very highly recommended to us by an talented woodworker about 5 years ago. They have proven themselves to be meticulous, talented, experienced and professional with unquestionable integrity that our clients value above all else. I can add they are very respectful of the premises while working in our clients homes. Dealing with construction and renovation can be a stressful endeavor, and after working with Arkwright we wouldn't want to work with any other contractor.

Jason Moore & Associates

Dane and his team did amazing work and were very professional. (I had my shower grout re-done and shower/floors/countertops re-sealed) The tile looks like it's completely new as it clearly wasn't done right the first time. I really appreciated that he fully managed expectations with timing which is something that I've never gotten in the past from contractors. Additionally, I felt very comfortable leaving his team in my place while I went to work. They cleaned up and locked up each day so I didn't have to worry and wasn't left with a mess each night. I would definitely hire them again!

Ashley Wayne

We have worked with Dane and the Arkwright crew many times and have never had anything but a perfect experience, which is rare in this industry. They are professional, organized and timely. As an interior designer, we have high expectations and Arkwright has always exceeded them. Can't recommend them enough!

Alexandra Kaehler Design

Arkwright did a thorough job and was flexible with unforeseen schedule changes. More importantly, they have been very responsive post construction.
