“Joe first worked on a project for me in 2004, a significant renovation of a large house in West Cambridge. And I just kept coming back — three follow-on projects, and then a renovation of the apartment to which I have downsized now that my children are grown. Joe stands behind his work and is unfailingly honest and transparent. He knows every trade, can diagnose every issue, understands historic buildings, and is a true artist and craftsman. Joe dedicates his heart, mind, and soul to every aspect of a project to create spaces that are beautiful and distinctive.”
“Once I started working with Opus, the pre-project stress was gone. If you don’t have time to manage every aspect of your project, they will take care of any concern. With fabulous subcontractors and willingness to put in the time and effort to ensure quality work, stellar craftsmanship, and a clean livable home every day, I not only plan on calling back again, but now have Joe on speed dial.”
“Joe thrives on creating the very best and unique space for each of his clients. I often say that a little part of Joe is in every nail and plank in our home. We look forward to continued adventures with him and the Opus gang!”
“We worked with Opus on a substantial residence in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2018 and found the company (as well as their subcontractors) to be thoughtful, transparent, communicative and proactive. Opus worked tirelessly to meet the client’s deadlines and needs and showed exceptional levels of craftsmanship, organization and attention to detail throughout the project. Opus is an organized and passionate builder who is truly dedicated to the process and are team players through and through.”
“For over 20 years, Joe DiLazzaro’s heart, energy, expertise and friendship have enhanced our family’s daily life.
After transforming our cute little house into the envy of the neighborhood, Joe and his team have tackled numerous projects to expand, maintain and improve our home over the years. Each experience has been a joyful adventure.”
“Opus fosters a culture of collaboration, craftsmanship, integrity, curiosity, and passion. Rooted in the best practices of generations of craftspeople but ever searching for innovations in materials and methods to improve their product – your home. I relish every opportunity I get to join them in the work we both love – building your dreams. Love you guys!”
“They say cooler heads prevail, and with Opus, that was the case. They were so proactive and adaptable to every new situation, and with that came the strong faith that we would be able to get through the project. Some people may try to pull the wool over your eyes when something doesn’t go exactly as planned but that was never the case here, and that really created a sense of trust and honesty which showed at every stage of the project.”
“With Opus, there is no detail that is forgotten, and this gives you a sense of safety and security that your project is in the best hands for the job. Not only is there constant communication from their end, but they go above and beyond to make their clients aware that no question or concern is a burden. With a deep respect for the client’s vision and a can do attitude towards everything, [Opus] has set the bar high for everything.
“Multiple things can happen in a renovation, and things are much more complicated than you can imagine. Even as a designer with a lot of experience working with people on their process, you never really know how intricate things are until you live it. The client needs to be compatible with the builder and Opus can handle everything from big to small and complicated to simple. Not only did they explain everything clearly but they could also handle any question or concern I had.”
“Joe is a master communicator. He presented in writing the what, when, how and cost of each aspect of our project. He responded immediately to any questions we raised. He wove together the many schedules of contractors and his own team beautifully.
The quality of work was top notch. All the workers from the excavation crews to finish carpenters and painters were pleasant and polite. Clearly Joe treats them with respect and communicated expectations clearly.”
“Our Heartfelt thanks for your keen eyes, attention to detail-like no other, Humor, communication skills and always giving us the confidence that our home will forever be the home that we love.”
