Brian O'Donnell has been managing successful projects with the O'Donnell family for over 30 years. He also lends Biltmore a knowledge of property and real estate management, which has been valuable for assisting our clients through the pre-construction phase of their projects.

Meet The Team

John P. O'Donnell  PRESIDENT

Our project managers are OSHA 10 certified. We have an internal written safety program, and perform regular job site safety reviews during the course of our projects. 

We pride ourselves on developing not only a quality project, but a long-lasting relationship with our clients. We provide ongoing maintenance for our projects to ensure that our clients remain satisfied in the long term.

Standards of Safety

Lasting Relationship

Personal Attention

Every client has a unique set of needs, and each project presents its own set of challenges. We give careful attention to the work requirements, the schedule, and the budget of each project to ensure it is

a success for our client.

The O'Donnell Family's history in construction dates back to 1923, with a skilled Irish craftsman named Peter J. O'Donnell. He was insistent on careful attention to detail and quality workmanship. His family-owned business was founded on his integrity, and it became a successful and respected home building company.

Insistence on Quality

We believe that if a project has the Biltmore name attached to it, we must be proud of it. We are serious about our standards of quality. Our tradesmen,  and our clients, will tell you so.

Our Legacy

& Today

In 1956, Mr. O'Donnell passed ownership on to his son, Peter E. O'Donnell, and the company was expanded to include commercial building projects.

The O'Donnell family managed a diverse portfolio of building projects in Northeast Ohio, including Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Stouffer's Inn on the Square (now the Cleveland Renaissance Hotel), and the Great Lakes Brewing Company, and retail clients such as Kohl's and Dick's Sporting Goods.

Today, Biltmore Construction is owned & operated by the third and fourth

generations of the O'Donnell family. We offer a more diverse range of services than ever before, and we still adhere to the standards of excellence that drove

Peter O'Donnell in 1923.
