David Merrick, MCR

My Story

“As President of Merrick Design and Build, I am passionate about Design Build. I have been involved with building things since I was a small boy. I knew when I was attending the Boston Architectural Center that I wanted to be a Design Build contractor, the Boston Society of Architects thought otherwise. Design Build as an industry did not exist but I knew then it was the best way to deliver state of the art, technologically sound, artistic, well planned residential remodeling services. Today Merrick Design and Build is an established, nationally recognized leader in this industry.

I am the Father of three beautiful girls, the oldest, Addie has been a member of the Merrick Design and Build, Inc. team since 2010. Isabel, a graduate from the University of Florida, and Emma, from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, are both following in their mother’s footsteps and are working in special education. I am immensely proud of the achievements of all three of my children. My wife, Lu is the Director of the Post High School program at The Ivymount School. We have been residents of Kensington since 1986 and love our community.”
