NECD did a great job on the renovations of two apartments for us in the South End. In fact, we liked the designs, and we loved the final products!
We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience from start to finish. Both the process and the result were outstanding. We are very happy with NEDC and would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality renovation.
The end result was great, and we had an excellent crew working with us the whole time.
Since we've gone through a separate renovation where we managed the work (i.e. design was separated from the contractor and subs, etc), it was really tough to manage, so having the experience from design to budgeting to the start of the build process with NEDC has been so smooth. We understand there's surprises or changes, etc., and so all of that has been managed really well.
Mission Statement - My parents multifamily house (my childhood house) was outdated and had not been repaired in far too long, NEDC made our vision of recreating the home into 2 spaces that fit both my young family and aging parents' needs a reality. We will forever be grateful for that and hope that it gets to stay in the family for generations to come.
Additional Comments - The quality of the work is very high. We are really happy with the overall design and the work done. The warranty responses have been excellent.

Thank YOU GRADY and NEDC (particularly Gustavo and Gary!) for working with me on my kitchen. I am very happy with how everything turned out, and I enjoy cooking and just being in the kitchen so much more. It is much more functional than the way it was before, and I think it looks great too. The light from the sliding glass door is wonderful, and I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a bit so that I can effortlessly make my way out to the patio through the kitchen rather than going through 3 different doors to get there. I think that we’ve achieved the best outcome for the space and I would work with you and NEDC to create it without a moment’s hesitation.
