Our clients loved working with us.

Long&Foster Realtor

"I was delighted to work with James. He was the general contractor for work that was done to one of my listings. He was communicative and easy to reach. The project was very successful and my client was very happy with the results. "

3 story Addition and Roof Deck Noma DC

"I am making the strongest recommendation for Noel Design Group. For our major home addition project, there was no other choice then James Noel. When we hired him it was not only for the superior quality of his work but for the comfort level of knowing his integrity. We were able to rest assured through the entire scope that we had his full commitment to our project."


"Noel Design Build took on a very complicated attic roof bump up project on my historic DC row home. The project involved a lot of structural work with five steel beams and also included a green roof and roof deck. James is a creative designer with a unique talent for integrating dual visions for how a space will look and how it should be built. I can definitely highly recommend them to others."

Capitol Hill. Whole House Renovation

"The process with James and his crew has been amazing, from design to finish. James is not just a contractor turning over jobs, but wants the job to come out as good as we do, if not better. We are so happy and ecstatic with how things have turned out. You should definitely consider James for your next project."


"We recommend this company without reservation. We have had several excellent experiences with this company for finishing basement / attic and structural, design work for an addition. James Noel has a lot of experience and a recognized expertise in the design and construction field. He is really client-oriented and his crews are well-qualified and reliable. The quality of service is perfect and within the budget."

Chevy Chase DC Kitchen 1st story addition

"Noel Design Build Group is an excellent company. James Noel is a gifted designer, communicator, and collaborator. James was creative, conscientious, and patient, always presenting us with options. We have done a number of remodeling projects over the years and no other project has been so extensive, and never has the process been so comfortable. I can wholeheartedly recommend Noel Design Build Group."

James Noel is an amazing designer and builder. See the picture with the beautiful cherry cabinets and spectacular glass... tile backsplash? That's what James built for us. He was wonderful to work with throughout the design process, and the many decision points during construction. James was able to take my husband's and my ideas, add his highly developed aesthetic and structural expertise, bring in talented crews and subcontractors, and give us a rejuvenated home.The work crews from Noel Design Build were led by an experienced foreman, and all the workers were competent, polite, and tidy.We've undertaken several remodeling projects, and never have we felt more confident in a contractor. James is trustworthy, skilled, and knowledgeable. We would hire his company more
