Tony started his remodeling career at twelve years old when his mother allowed him to remodel the basement of their home in New Jersey. That was beginning of a long and challenging career in the building industry. As a young man, Tony worked for premier contractors on the east coast. He also attended the North Bennett Street School in Boston where he learned a great deal about building, construction, craftsmanship and fine woodworking. After graduating from the North Bennett Street School he moved to Santa Cruz where he continued working with excellent contractors in Santa Cruz building high-end, custom homes. In 2000 he decided to start his own general contracting business called A D Construction, where he has completed a wide variety of construction projects including large renovations, additions, new construction, kitchen and bath remodels, and custom woodworking projects. Tony has a passion for fine woodworking and quality construction.
Shannon Demma’s passion for building and remodeling began when she purchased her first “fixer upper” home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She worked relentlessly on designing and renovating her home to create a beautiful relaxing retreat. During this process she met Tony Demma and their interest in creating beautiful, sustainable spaces grew. She joined A D construction in 2005 to assist Tony in the project management and design aspects of the business. Shannon also developed a passion for green building and sustainable design. She has taken numerous courses through the Sustainable Design program at UC Berkeley extension. She is also a LEEP Accredited Professional. Shannon provides design services that include 3-D renderings, floor plans, elevations, construction plans, design consultation, and permit application and processing.
