18 Hazelwood Street, Roxbury, MA
It is with pleasure, enthusiasm and professional confidence that I recommend you regarding your new business adventures. The work you did at my home at 18 Hazelwood Street certainly speaks for itself. It is one thing to re-design and renovate a structure from what is, that is, such a large % of my home/layout, before the fire, was so badly visually destroyed, I remain amazed that you were able to put it back so beautifully, based on my verbal description of my home as it was, and your design ability to add your personal touch. I would recommend you to anyone who desired the use of your professional skills and of course will continue business relationship with you in the future. Good luck and I wish you great great business projects in the future! Sincerely yours,

The Narrow Gate LPP
To Whom it may concern: This letter is in reference to Mr. Cesar Dasilva and DCCS Construction Inc., who was the general contractor for a project at 121-123 Blue Hill Avenue developed by Nuestra Comunidad Development Corporation. The Narrow Gate was engaged by Nuestra Comunidad as the architects for project, and I was the principal-in-charge for The Narrow Gate. 121-123 Blue Hill Avenue involved the gut rehabilitation and reconfiguration of two historic brick rowhouses into a pair of three-family residences. The buildings were renovated as part of a program initiative run by the City of Boston's neighborhood development department to stabilize neighborhoods by saving 1-4 unit residential buildings. The project included major structural rebuild of collapsed walls and significant repair of historic brickwork. It also included preservation and restoration of sandstone detail pieces. Roughly 50% of the floors and roof framing was replaced, and all new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were installed. It was a complex construction project on a busy urban street, and required careful coordination due to the lack of space on site. My recollection is that DCCS finished the project reasonably close to the schedule proposed for the work. The quality of work was good, and to my knowledge there were very few call-backs from the new owners after the project was completed. Cesar DaSilva was involved as the project manager and as the principal of DCCS on the project and spent a considerable amount of time coordinating and managing the project to ensure it's success. As with any complicated renovation project, there were change orders required due to unforseen conditions, and change orders can be difficult to negotiate on projects with very limited budgets. My recollection is that in the end, the change orders on this project were fairly priced and properly documented so the owner could understand what was required. Overall, Mr. DaSilva and DCCS completed 121-123 Blue Hill Avenue successfully and I believe the owner was very satisfied with the product. Sincerely,

Dorchester Bay
To whom it may concern, This is a letter of recommendation for Mr. Cesar DaSilva and his organization DCCS Construction Inc. Dorchester Bay currently underwent an office renovation and we contracted Mr. DaSilva and DCCS COnstruction Inc. From the beginning of the bidding process to the end of the project it was done with professionalism, flexibility of work during off-working hours and weekends. This was highly appreciated to accommodate staff and cause minimal interruption on our day-to-day operations. The project was completed on time and on budget. I would highly recommend Mr. DaSilva and his crew for any construction needs you may have in your organization. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to discuss further. Sincerely,

Mark Dinaburg

Codman Square NDC
I have known Cesar DaSilva professionally since the 1990's and have worked with him on two projects. The first was One-to-Four building, done for Urban Edge, where he served as rehab specialist; and the second, more recently, was the rehab of a triple decker in Dorchester (412 Talbot) for Codman Sq. NDC, where he was GC. I found him knowledgeable, fair in his pricing, diligent, and as GC, delivering a good standard work. In addition, his company and sub-contractors have a high proportion of local and minority employees. I would certainly recommend him for consideration by other developers. Sincerely,
