dkDesignBuild is a culmination of 20 years of construction, development, real estate investing with a heavy influence in design and architecture. Together for almost a quarter century of business, the founders, Don Gilmartin and Kurt Szalonek built a full scale design oriented construction company geared to a higher level of creativity, customer service and integrity.
Holding designations as licensed General contractors as well as Don holding a real estate broker’s license, the team has built and sold almost every form of construction from commercial to residential track building and sub division. Their 20+ years of construction has also allowed them to build full tenant improvements for restaurants and medical offices with ease.
Even more importantly, they’ve opened a fire & water restoration division taking full advantage of Kurt’s independent insurance adjuster experience during hurricanes Sandy & Irene. The new division is Associated Property Restoration Insurance Service, Inc.(APRIS).This company allows the guys to help families bride the gap from small home pipe breaks, slab leaks and other forms of small home disasters with insurance carriers. Ultimately, making disasters go away and creating the bridge with the home owner insurance claim process.
With their heaviest emphasis in design, both Don and Kurt bring the complete builder experience to every project they undertake while adding the depth of a full service builder unlike any other company.
