Woolrich Group

We are a passionate team of entrepreneurs, designers, coordinators, and professionals; along with a tight knit group of trades, artisans, and suppliers who have worked together for many years. Our relationships have been built on teamwork and trust.

Collaboration between design, construction and our clients is at the heart of our renovation process. Our “hands-on” team works closely every step of the way to maximize efficiencies, take action on challenges and ideas, and create a space that is your own.

The Experience

There is an Art and Science to creating an outstanding living space from an existing home.  Renovations involve many people and products, with a large number of moving parts. Inevitably, pieces of the renovation puzzle move and change; decisions need to be made quickly and wisely – with an eye to budget, timeline and while maintaining the overall aesthetics.

Our Process

Our experience has taught us that opportunities, challenges and ideas will always arise after plans have been made. We embrace the fact that change will always be part of the process, and we use it to the advantage of our team and our clients. Our design and construction teams collaborate every step of the way, allowing us to quickly identify opportunities, have open and honest discussions, and take action on change in a way that furthers your project goals.

Our integrated process was rewarded with 5-Star customer satisfaction reviews in both 2015 and 2016, the ultimate measure to our success.

Relationship Focused

Relationships are at the heart of everything we do.  We forge strong relationships with our clients and our team. The renovation process is not an easy one, but we believe that through trust, clear communication and collaboration, we can make it as easy as possible.

Cecily Woolrich

Managing Partner

Cecily is passionate about working to make the renovation experience for the client as simple, and as enjoyable, as possible. Over the past 19 years, she has designed and contracted many residential and commercial projects – and has done so in almost every capacity. Her knowledge of how things are constructed is one of her strongest assets in guiding Woolrich Group’s renovation process.  She is continuously looking for ways to work to bridge the gap between design and construction.

With a nickname like MacGyver, you can understand why Bruce is an important part of the Woolrich Group team as the lead general contractor.  Bruce’s background in the management of large restaurant chains provides him the skills to multitask – dealing with both trades and clients and the designers.
Problem-solving, scheduling, and good trade relations are a big part of his critical contributions to the process.
