Renascent DC

What is the biggest misconception about the industry?

That demolition is environmentally-unfriendly and extremely dangerous. Which is just not the case 99% of the time.  

What is your biggest current challenge at work?

The price fluctuations and supply-chain issues in the market right now are affecting every part of the construction industry.

What keeps you up at night?

Making sure our customers are satisfied with our service.

What project is your company most proud of?

Right now, we're very proud of the time and effort we put into bidding the demolition of RFK Stadium. The project hasn't been awarded but the team is extremely please with the final product we submitted.

How does your ABC membership help your company?

We're hoping that this membership helps spread our name and capabilities out across the DMV. Renascent DC is new to the area but we're not new to demolition.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to do something involving construction equipment. I was raised in the woods of New Hampshire, where there was always plenty of equipment to mess around with.    

Tell us something no one in the industry knows about you.

I am a diehard Patriots fan.

What do you look forward to each day?


What are you like to work for?

If you try hard, we'll get along great.

Who would you trade places with for a day?

Dwayne Johnson
