FR Review:
Clients rave about the “superb” work and service that characterizes Dutchman Contracting. Reports say that principal Thomas van de Veerdonk runs a tight ship and makes it his business to employ a conscientious and consistent group of workers. We hear that stylistically, the firm is as comfortable doing work in a Park Avenue pre-war as they are with a downtown—loft and produce similarly impres- sive results.

Known for being very hands-on, van de Veerdonk has been in the construction business all his life. He started out doing ornamental plastering with his father and later moved on to general contracting. He opened Dutchman is 1994. The company boasts 40 employees and also has an affiliated painting company with fifteen to twenty extra workers. This staff consists of five project managers, seven supers (who manage the job sites), in-house carpenters, framers, installers and a finishing crew. An impressive 80 percent of the work is done in-house.

Dutchman Contracting is predominantly known for residential work, specifically construction management as well as some design-build. They have no project minimum, but jobs typically range from $500,000 up to $4 million. The firm does seven to ten jobs per year in Manhattan, the Hamptons, Greenwich and New Jersey. Fees are based on time and an average percentage of total construction costs.

Representative Client Comments:

Did a great job, using all high-end materials.” “I’ve been working with contractors for over 27 years and they are excellent.” “Decided on Dutchman because of experience, quality, presentation, price point and chemistry.” “Adhered to very strict building codes. Got along well with co-op board. Dealt with challenges well.” “Thomas along with his foreman were very hands on.” "Courteous group of men. Left everything clean each day. Did not upset the neighbors.” “Lived up to our ironclad contract.” ”Excellent framer and carpenter. All the tradespeople are truly the best.” “Every spring they come to the country house to check out everything. Their forman, Mike, even has keys to my house. That's how much I trust them, and their work.”
