“An extensive background in building new homes has given David a valuable depth of experience with every facet of residential construction. I have witnessed how his creativity and good sense of design can resolve functional problems in an aesthetically pleasing manner; and he is particular about choosing subcontractors who are competent and experienced. Especially important to me was the confidence that I could rely upon David and his crew to follow through with a project in a timely manner even when circumstances forced me to be away from Santa Fe for an extended period of time.”
“Over many years we’ve worked with several building contractors and have placed Equus and David at the top of our list. They offer outstanding technical skills, professional integrity and provide overall satisfaction with the project. We recommend David and his subcontractors with no reservations. Our experience shows you can expect excellent craftsmanship, attention to detail, promptness and a successful realization of your remodel plan.”
“Working with you throughout this project has been so very easy. Your consummate professionalism and outstanding communication skills made this long-distance project a breeze. We made only one site visit during the whole process and at that time found little to change. How very fortunate for us to have discovered you.”
"The fact that you were personally at the construction site every day that any work was being done was very reassuring to us."
"... your expertise and careful planning, suggestions of improvements in the original plans and following up on all the many details made this experience the most satisfying and successful of my several remodeling experiences."
“…after David put his imagination to work we knew the results would be something special. He ‘s also an excellent contractor and builder. He’s extremely organized and pays strict attention-to-detail in all matters. As a result, he enlists the skilled services of superb craftsmen because they know he’ll not waste their time and he’ll pay them when they properly complete their work. The result is a beautiful job and a happy customer.”
“We really cannot speak too highly of David’s technical skills, general attitude, people skills, and responsible work ethic. He was a joy to work with, and we are thrilled with the final result of our collaboration."
"We are very satisfied and especially pleased with our experience with Shields and Company. One particular item of note, your job site was remarkably clean and orderly which to me indicates the professionalism of your foreman workers. I would recommend you without reservation for any design and/or construction project of this nature."
"We recently had the good fortune of using the services of David Shields and Equus, Inc. to perform some rather substantial remodeling to our home. Based upon that experience we would recommend David and his company to anyone seeking good craftsmanship with integrity. "
"David’s design background resulted in a finished product that was in tune with the original structure. This is noteworthy as many of the projects we have contracted with other local vendors do not blend with the original design of the house."
"I have worked with two other contractors in the past whose services I would not recommend. I would highly recommend undertaking a project with David Shields and Equus, Inc."
