Brother-in-laws Frank Dimperio and Patrick Timmons, homebuilding veterans with a combined 40-plus years of residential construction experience in the Chicagoland area, founded 5th Avenue Construction in 2009.

Seeing the industry shift amidst the Great Recession, Dimperio and Timmons established 5th Avenue as an antidote to the cost-cutting, quality-reducing measures they saw rising throughout the homebuilding industry. Eager to craft a new niche in the marketplace and respond to homebuyers’ most pressing concerns, Dimperio and Timmons constructed 5th Avenue to have a precise focus on three areas:

• Inspired and distinctive design
• Optimal transparency between buyer and builder
• High-quality and sustainable construction practices

The family-owned and operated firm caters to individual buyers, particularly in the custom home marketplace. In addition, 5th Avenue has entered community development with semi-custom homes in Lemont (The Glens of Connemara), and Lisle, Illinois. The firm also performs custom remodeling work.

In 2012, 5th Avenue’s evolution reached a new high when the company moved into a modern showroom in downtown Naperville, a physical sign of the firm’s emerging reputation and rapid growth. The 5th Avenue headquarters hosts a design center, a full kitchen, and smart home technology.
