Full Service Home Remodeling & Renovation


d. a. kinsella company is an architectural design firm and general contractor based in Billerica, MA. Our architectural and construction management practice was founded in 1990 by David A. Kinsella, our principal architect. He knew he wanted to be an architect straight out of high school. Our practice was designed with the premise that anyone in need of design services should have access to it. The combination of design and construction that our team offers differentiates us from our competitors.
