Our History

Passion for the craft of building is the principle on which NYC Design Group was founded over 10 years ago. The creative process of forming a structure from a sketch on a page or an inkling in the mind is one that excites and motivates our dedicated team.

Our commitment to custom design and high-end renovation arises from our desire to provide clients with buildings that fulfill their every need. As a general contracting firm with architectural credentials, we provide quality design, interior renovation, and construction services.


With 20 years of construction experience and a five year Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt University,

founder and CEO Ray Saavedra reflects our firm’s hybrid strength. He leads a diverse, detail-oriented team, which will handle your project through every phase of the building process.

Small size and diversity of talent are among our greatest strengths,

allowing us to devote personalized attention to each undertaking. Our staff has undergone a competitive hiring process, ensuring that only the most talented and enthusiastic individuals are handling your project.

Our clients’ peace of mind is important to us.

Construction projects often involve large investments of time and money. We approach every project as if it were our own.
