Accreditations: CGR Certified Graduate Remodeler, CAPS Certified Aging in place specialist
Education: BS from the School of Business and Administration with a concentration in Marketing, University of Vermont
Dave’s Experience: “My introduction to the remodeling industry started by swinging a hammer for a builder on Martha’s Vineyard during the summers starting in High School. My passion for construction grew and by the time I graduated college, I knew that owning and running my own construction company was what I wanted to do. Since that time I have immersed myself in creating a design/build company that delivers great projects and great experiences. As our industry is always evolving on so many fronts I am constantly educating myself regarding design trends, “green” concepts and construction technology.”
Dave’s Design Philosophy: “I believe that great design is a function of actively listening to our client’s needs and wants and then spending time digging in a little deeper to challenge those assumptions to ensure that our solutions are truly appropriate, add value and improve the quality of our client’s lives. I also believe that fantastic designs that go unbuilt and exist only on paper are not worth much. To that end I think it is important to have open and honest conversations about budget early in the design process. This allows us to avoid the all too common sticker shock that often comes at the end of the design process. Interests: I enjoy spending time with my wife and four kids, exercise, upland game hunting, salt water fishing(as much as my marriage will allow), building furniture in my shop and volunteering for various organizations in the Merrimack Valley.”
