“DAVIS is more than just a general contractor; they are a partner and a valued part of the team. We worked together to stay within budget and meet project goals.”

Charlie Smiroldo Managing Director, Stream Realty

We bring the technical know-how to retrofit old buildings to meet today’s standards.


DAVIS’ process leads the market, and our technology allows us to document existing conditions. With this information, we can plan for the integration of new technology and utilities in spaces not originally designed to accommodate them.
