Coneco Building LLC is an extension of a partnership that was formed in the late 1990’s between Dick Matthews and Rick Lincoln. Dick owned and operated R.D. Matthews Construction Co., Inc. for over 40 years building hundreds of homes and gaining a great reputation as a high quality builder mainly in the Hingham and Hanover area. Rick is a CPA (now inactive)/MBA that pursued his passion for building and development. Since 1996 Rick has built and developed several residential and multi-family developments totaling over 120 homes and 343 apartment units.

Most of the original homes were large, highly detailed, custom colonials. The last 15 years Coneco has migrated to planned developments that contain smaller, well designed and highly energy efficient homes“ including one development that contained over 60 geothermal heating/cooling systems.

Rick also owns Coneco Engineers & Scientists, established in 1992, that employs almost 60 environmental scientists, engineers and surveyors. This alliance allows Coneco Building to design and monitor developments entirely in-house.


Our Team

Boasting a team of three senior project foremen, one of which started with Dick Matthews over 30 years ago, Coneco maintains a high level of consistent quality and attention to detail. All the foremen have worked on residential, multi-family and commercial projects including site development, frame and finish work.

Dave Beers

Residential Crew Manager

Dave has over 35 years of residential, commercial and mid-rise multifamily experience. His passion is digging in the dirt which results in well planned and elevated houses that have superior drainage systems. 

Jeff Pritchard

Multifamily Crew Manager

Jeff has been on the team for 8 years. Jeff tends more toward finish carpentry but, as a result of time in Vermont, can do just about anything related to building. Jeff’s other passion is music and he is a talented guitarist.
