The Dickson Experience

For more than four decades Dickson Development has been working with discerning homeowners in Princeton and surrounding communities to create living spaces that fulfill visions and complement lifestyles. Richard Dickson and his team of professionals have built nearly 400 homes and completed more than 100 renovations.

Dickson Development was established in 1972 by a second-generation builder pursuing a lifelong passion. Richard Dickson was not only interested in building high-quality, well-constructed homes, but also building strong relationships with his clients and their families. That tradition of excellence continues today.

Richard Dickson built his reputation on personal service, quality construction and craftsmanship. He is known as one of the most dependable, experienced and conscientious builders in central New Jersey.

“We are more than general contractors,” he says. “We offer a complete design-build service and work with our clients from start to finish, from planning and design to construction and final details.”

Dickson and his team of designers, craftsmen and trade partners are involved with your home construction project every step of the way. We are on-site at each home we build or remodel, overseeing every detail and making sure the highest quality of construction and building standards are met.

Whether you come to us with a vague notion or a complete set of plans, Dickson Development will work with you to complete your project in the most efficient way. “We are known for our design-build program and take pride in the level of creativity we bring to each project,” says Dickson.


The Distinction That’s Princeton

Working in Princeton allows Richard Dickson to do what he enjoys most – provide personal service to every family he works with.

Richard Dickson keeps his core values close to heart, and his projects close to town. His town: Princeton, NJ, and its surrounding communities, which include Princeton Junction, Hopewell, West Windsor, Pennington, Lawrenceville, Cranbury, Skillman and Montgomery.

Princeton is one of the most sought-after real estate markets in the country. Homes here hold their value. Dickson Development has seen tremendous growth in its renovations and addition business because so many local residents would rather expand or enhance their current homes than move. Why leave when you have already arrived?

Richard tries to keep all new projects within a 7-mile radius of Princeton so that he and his team can supervise every detail of a job. This keeps quality up and costs down.
