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Mission Statement - My parents multifamily house (my childhood house) was outdated and had not been repaired in far too long, NEDC made our vision of recreating the home into 2 spaces that fit both my young family and aging parents' needs a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.

Overall Experience - NEDC has great staff and Ryan has been exceptionally helpful.
Recognized Excellence - We would like to recognize Ryan Hayes for his hard work, communication and patience. When he realized that the day laborers hadn't finished the job, he came and finished digging out footings himself. He was always making sure the job site was cleaned up and ready for the next thing...and the inspectors! We can't say enough about how he held our hands through the whole process and worked with us on solutions to the many problems that arose. Even when his attention was clearly divided among multiple projects.
The warranty program is exceptional. It is clear that NEDC stands by their work and that the customer means everything to them. They work hard to build and sustain these relationships by being responsive to our needs and questions. This goes well beyond what our past experiences have been with other builders. Javier has been refreshingly honest, committed to following through, attentive and clearly has a great solid knowledge base when it comes to the work. We have nothing but confidence in the quality of the build because of this.
Creative Solutions - The design firm was always willing to listen to our needs/wants, as well as listen to us when we didn’t want something.
Communication - We are so impressed with the level of responsiveness by our Project Manager, Ryan. He keeps us aware of every detail, always answers our questions and will go out of his way to make sure our home is safe and habitable by our family. And he is always kind and respectful. We are grateful to have him oversee our project.
Trust - The level of detail orientation leaves us with complete faith in the process.
Communication - Incredible communication from Ryan who kept us aware of every step in the process. Josh and Javier were great about checking in and answering questions.
Problem Resolution - This is what sets NEDC above the rest! They are always willing to listen to their clients and address any concerns right away. They stand by their work completely and will fix anything that does not meet our satisfaction entirely. Amazing service!
Mission Statement - The design of our space is not only functional but breathtaking as well. It’s by far the most coveted room in our house! The design time really took the time to listen to our wants and needs and then design a space that met both.
Value - Overall, yes. We think it has been a good value for money experience, especially with the response we have received to any issues that have come up.
Recognized Excellence - Ryan Hayes!! He basically made the construction process bearable when it could have easily become frustrating by addressing concerns, sending us almost daily updates, answering questions and just being a friendly person whom we could go to! We are very grateful for all his hard work! And Josh LaPan for checking in and moving things along when he could! Thank you both!! We also want to say thank you to Ann and Diana who worked really hard to make this space work for our family. We are grateful for the views, a proper place to put our shoes, spaces for progress report writing and jump roping which are not on top of each other, and the ability to just relax together as a family. Thank you!
Favorite Home Feature - We love the window wall!! It's so serene. The desk and mud area have been life changing! What would we change? At this point, nothing. I wish we had done the kitchen at the same time though! :)

Referrals - I have already put NEDC in touch with one friend who is looking to redesign their kitchen. We speak highly of NEDC whenever asked about our renovation process, and will always be willing to refer you.
Mission Statement - Our friends love hanging out in the kitchen you created for us. All the natural light just puts people in a good mood. And as a functional space it has been terrific - we can finally cook together without constantly being in each other's way.

Mission Statement - The staff always listened carefully and respectfully and their post construction follow up has been excellent. The entire process from design through finish details was a pleasure.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The quality of workmanship is very good, especially in the bathroom and the office. The designs were modern and clever without being too edgy or goofy, and coordinate well with older, less modern parts of our house.
Recognized Excellence - We appreciated the work of the entire team, especially Brad Cashin's design that mixed modern elements together with our existing, not entirely modern home. His suggestions of materials and designs were great. We also appreciated Dan and Gary's care at cleaning up and respecting our property and privacy.
Additional Comments - New England Design & Construction is the easiest company to work with and the nicest people. Dan has been great. He makes process easier for me.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The construction implementation was excellent. The carpenters were excellent. Dan, who supervised and worked on site, was superior. Gary, the assistant carpenter, was also outstanding. They could not provide a better service. The subcontractors - especially the plumber - were outstanding. The plumbing for this job was extremely important, and they have a superb team.
Problem Resolution - I would like to recognize David Supple of NEDC for his commitment to doing whatever he could within reasons to ensure customer satisfaction. On the very limited occasions whereby there was an understanding difference between NEDC and I, Dave was very quick to openly discuss the disconnect and to identify an amicable resolution.
NEDC has been nothing short of perfect in its service, understanding our needs, and working with us to make our vision a reality. While our actual construction is just starting, NEDC has been there every step of the way and continue to show us the excellent level of service as they did when we started. For those with a family and planning on living at home during the construction, NEDC is the place to go. They have been so understanding, respectful, and attentive in keeping our lives as normal as possible during our remodel and with two small kids that very welcome.
