Michael Collins, D. Michael Collins Architects. 

  Meet Michael Collins of D. Michael Collins Architects   Building and maintaining a team environment is the key to success in our business. Every job starts with the right combination of people. The builder - architect relationship is a critical partnership of building a house. We’ve been fortunate to have forged such a partnership with Michael Collins, who runs his own Natick-based firm, D. Michael Collins Architects.  This isn't a “pump his tires” tribute. Mike is plenty busy with work. Always has been, always will be. Rather, the descriptions here are about a talented professional who is an even better man! Mike is a great architect. He’s talented, super creative, patient, and truly listens to his clients. He has created a range of differently styled homes throughout New England and beyond. He does both small projects and estates. He puts the needs of his clients at the forefront of each project.

John Giordano, North Star Excavating, Inc.

Our partners on site have been carefully vetted over time for their experience, expertise and most importantly, their character. We would not be who we are without them. For this reason, we feel compelled to use this outlet to tout the talents and sincerely thank the great people within our industry whom we admire and call our partners. As a sign of our respect, KVC will also be making a donation to onetreeplanted.org on behalf of each of them.  We build a home from the ground up, so aptly, our first thank you is to John Giordano, longtime President of North Star Excavating, Inc. You can’t build a great home on shaky ground! Excavation & earthwork are the first critical aspects of any construction project. This area also has the highest degree of uncertainty of any trade when we start a project. You need a nimble and trustworthy partner with you. John is always respectful, professional, and undaunted; he and his team overcome all challenges that a site can throw [...]
