About Collin and Colleen
Born and raised on the Mainline, Collin and Colleen bring more than 20-years of experience in development and construction. To date, Collin has managed nearly $750M in construction projects throughout the Philadelphia region gaining a reputation of honesty, dedication and grit. The need for thick skin in our industry is an understatement. Every day brings new challenges, but patience and hard-work conquer.
In 2018, Collin and his wife, Colleen, were profiled in the Philadelphia Inquirer after completing a stunning three-story addition and whole house renovation to their Arts + Crafts-style home in downtown Wayne. The project was noteworthy, not only for its beautiful finishes and remarkable transformation, but also for the couple’s hands-on involvement, with Collin serving as General Contractor and Colleen handling design, layout and finish selections. That process inspired Colleen and Collin to launch Poplar Construction + Design, which focuses on land development services, custom single-family homes, construction for single family, multi-family or mixed-use ventures, renovations, additions and design services.
Collin is also a PA licensed real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and the Mainline Haven team. In addition, Colleen, who boasts a design background, offers design consultations post construction and is a certified home stager.
Outside of the construction world, Collin and Colleen enjoy their early mornings at Tribe Fitness Mainline, cooking, music, traveling, spending time with family and walking their dog around Wayne. Collin currently serves on the Radnor Township Design Review board, which review applications for signage, commercial construction and façade renovations and also volunteers as a coach for his daughter’s Radnor-Wayne softball team. Collin and Colleen live in Wayne with their two daughters, Aislyn and Adelyn and their sheepadoodle, Ollie! They enjoy taking frequent trips to their seaside vacation home in beautiful Anna Maria Island, Florida.
