Cape Associates, Inc. is a third generation family business now owned by the grandchildren of founder Lester F. Langhans, Jr.. Cape Associates was established in 1971 by Lester, a World War II veteran and life-long builder who had relocated to the Cape a year earlier. In 1978, an office, warehouse and shop encompassing over 5,000 square feet was constructed at our present site in North Eastham. From the mid 1980’s through 2012, Michael H. Cole, Lester’s son-in-law was President and Owner. During Michael’s tenure the business grew substantially, opened a second office and spread its geographical coverage. Michael carefully transitioned the business over to his children three years prior to his retirement at the end of 2012.
From three employees at its founding to now over 100 full-time, year-round employees, the company has grown to be one of the largest builders on Cape Cod. We cover Cape Cod, the islands and Plymouth with offices in Eastham, Chatham and Yarmouthport.
Our facilities include offices and conference rooms, advanced computer systems and storage for our construction equipment and vehicles, and a large heated shop for custom woodworking projects and year-round painting. Of significance to our customers, we also maintain the records of our past projects. Cape Associates currently works throughout Cape Cod, from Plymouth to Provincetown, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
