Our Team

Stephen Steele
Stephen Steele has experience in all aspects of the construction industry. He has worked in the construction trades for over 15 years. He likes to say that construction is in his blood as he is a “fourth generation carpenter.” We sometimes jokingly call Stephen our “rain maker.” But, all jokes aside, he does in truth have a natural knack for quickly and easily establishing a genuine rapport with people from all backgrounds. This rapport is based on his open and honest nature, his true confidence in our company and the work we do, and his quick laugh and easy smile. Stephen is a visionary, always looking ahead for the next challenge, and ready to meet whatever life offers with optimism and enthusiasm.

Miriam Steele
Miriam Steele (or “Mirm,” as we call her) oversees the office end of S&Z Construction, from billing to making sure that we are in compliance with all State laws governing licensed contractors. While this may not seem like the most glamorous of roles, we recognize that an efficiently run office is vitally important to the successful completion of our jobs. Mirm makes us look good on paper.

Our Crew
Our crew is made up of a core group of individuals who were our friends before they were our employees. As a whole we truly feel and operate like an extended family.  We believe this is significant because it means that we enjoy working together and are united in our commitment to provide our clients with the best possible experience throughout the construction process.  In addition, we are conscientious and respectful of clients who continue to live in their home during a remodel.
