How We Got Started Back in 2003

The Company

The company was founded initially as Danny’s Handyman Service in the fall of 2003 as way to circumvent the gym and help out elderly neighbors with repair tasks in my neighborhood. In 2006 we changed the name over to Danny’s Handyman & Remodeling Services, where we began to take on emergency commercial repair and maintenance as well as medium size residential remodels. We shifted again in 2014 and eventually found a permanent name we all liked: HammerWorks Construction Co. Under HammerWorks we’ve taken on full scale residential additions and remodels as well as Commercial and Government building restorations in Boston while still providing handy services to our original Metro Boston and suburban client base via our sister company The HandiWorks Company.


The look on someones face when you help them out is priceless. There’s no better feeling in the world than to know you made a difference in someones life. We see this a lot in the trades when we fix or build something for a client but service extends beyond the for-profit world. Over the past decade we’ve founded many projects both locally and internationally. In 2004, a backpack drive for the sprawling homeless community in Tampa FL. In 2010, helping a homeless man here in Boston (who had 2 masters degrees from ivy league schools) find housing and work, his story made national news. In 2012 helping launch a grassroots hurricane relief response in New York City called Occupy Sandy which ended up leading relief operations city-wide. In 2014, when the city of Detroit decided to shut off water to 40% of it’s residents in 3 months time, we responded with a relief and bill amnesty campaign (that photo up above is of my accepting a donation of 100+ 5 gallon gatorade water coolers from a Canadian org called Global Medic), we got the local government to change laws to help residents with their water situation as well.. In 2017, we mobilized a relief effort to Hurricane Harvey, which expanded to Puerto Rico. In fact, our sister company’s website made national news because we used it to as the central site for the initial relief and rescue efforts.

Our roots are based in service to others, it’s what drives us. That coupled with a knack for design and a passion to build is why HammerWorks is a solid choice for your next project.

Thanks for taking the time to read our story and we hope to hear from you soon,
