Mercer Street Modern

Princeton, NJ

Often, and understandably, our clients want their renovation or addition to “look like it’s always been there”.  Not on this project.  a+b Design Lab took cues from the exiting house but designed with their own palate.  Exquisite Sapele Mahogany Duratherm windows (made in Maine) establish the modern yet handmade feel for the rest of the project.  Custom millwork, fun light fixtures, and carefully curated finishes make the new work compliment the old on this whole house renovation.

We would recommend Pinneo for a residential project without reservation

We engaged Pinneo Construction to manage the comprehensive renovation of our 1930 home and its site in Princeton. We would recommend Pinneo for a residential project without reservation. They delivered our house on schedule and on budget. Their day-to-day project management, with detailed weekly meetings and reporting, is at the highest professional standard.

I am a real estate developer with extensive experience in new construction and renovation. I would put Pinneo at the top of my list for residential work based on their responsiveness, attention to detail, dedication to high-quality work, and congeniality. Our architects had specified many complicated details, all of which were properly handled by Pinneo and the sub-contractors they engaged for the project.

We had a stipulated sum contract with Pinneo (fixed fee), which held up under construction, notwithstanding the additional work orders we requested to bring other rooms of the house into conformity with the qualities of the renovated portions. With this additional work, the completion date was extended slightly, and Pinneo made a very hard and effective push at the end to prepare the house for our pre-arranged move-in date.
