From our Clients

“As President/CEO of an architectural millwork firm, I understand what it takes to complete a construction project and appreciate when a project has both aesthetic value and appeal. Over the past 25 years, I have hired Gazaille & Ward for several projects at my Edgartown home and they have exceeded my expectations every time. I highly recommend Gazaille & Ward.” —Marshall Mazzarella President/CEO, Windsor Woodworking
“We had a gut renovation in our house. Usually a project like this is pretty traumatic, but Tom made it seamless. And fast! I would do the whole thing again in a heartbeat. Tom was a pleasure to work with and he brings along a team of highly skilled people. Tom was very diligent and thorough. No small details escaped his attention and everything was done meticulously. The results are the proof. Our house is gorgeous and exactly how we imagined. We get tons of compliments.” —Paula Reidbord
“Tom Pierce builds dreams. He made ours a reality on Martha’s Vineyard. His genuine passion, meticulous attention to detail and pride in craftsmanship is reflected in the result. Throughout the entire process, Tom was always available to listen to our ideas, thoughts and suggestions and was there to guide us through the planning, development and execution – especially when we couldn’t be physically present on the island. To us, Tom Pierce was more than a builder – he was a partner – and for that we’ll be forever appreciative.” —Andrew & Barbara Graff
“Tom is everything we could have asked for in a contractor.  He did a very complicated complete renovation on an existing one story house for us. This required the main section of the house being entirely new from the foundation up while keeping the wings intact per ZBA restrictions.  He surpassed all of our expectations in his construction, craftsmanship and in managing  the project.   The majority of our work was done in the off-season and we were managing it from across the country through pictures. We couldn’t have been in better hands.  He listened to our wants at every step, accommodated our needs, and we couldn’t be happier with the finished project. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Tom again and recommend him highly.” —Halsted Sullivan

“Working with Tom Pierce on our construction project on Martha’s Vineyard was a total pleasure from beginning to end. Tom was great to work with in every phase of our project from planning to design to permits to demolition to construction to move in. Tom formed a strong partnership with us and our architect from the beginning, and he was in constant communications with us throughout the project. Tom is not only a strong construction manager, but he is a craftsman and cares a lot about the quality of his work. He offered really good ideas in terms of design, accessories and fixtures. This was the first house we had ever built so it was very helpful to have a builder who was very experienced and knowledgeable, and also very easy to work with. It is also helpful that Tom has been living and working on the Island for many years, and he has very good relationships with the towns, sub-contractors, and other important service providers. In terms of budget and time line, Tom managed the project very effectively. We always knew where we stood in terms of project deliverables, deadlines and actuals vs budget. Tom is open and transparent, and stayed positive and constructive throughout the project. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and has a good sense of humor. Tom has a very good team working with him, including his own staff, as well as the sub-contractors that he brings in. He is a good people manager; he treats the team with respect, but also demands a lot from them. They met every deadline, including the most important project completion deadline. Tom asked us to vacate our house by mid-August 2017, so they could complete demolition and start the foundation before Labor Day. He met our targeted new home completion date of Memorial Day 2018, and we moved in in early June. Tom also did a good job of following through on punch list items. We are very happy with our new home on the Vineyard and strongly endorse Tom Pierce.” —Barbara & Barry Bregmann
