The following are a few testimonials from our valued clients.
We have many, many more and would be proud to provide them upon request.

While I was in the process of building a new home in Clinton Ct. I was referred to Joe Wren by many local real estate professionals. In our first meeting I could tell that Joe had a thorough understanding of the challenges of building on a non-conforming residential lot with the issues of the tidal marsh wetlands, a designated flood zone, and set back requirements. Joe successfully managed the project through all the local application and approvals process. The success of this project is directly related to Joe Wren’s Engineering Expertise and his commitment to his client.

Joe and his team went above and beyond for us. Joe is extraordinarily meticulous, diligent, and responsive. Their work product was truly outstanding and impressive and of a caliber beyond what I was expecting. In our package to the Zoning Commission, he presented our facts and circumstances more articulately and concisely than we could have presented ourselves. We are forever grateful for finding Joe and his team. Thank you and we hope to work with Joe again soon on another project.

I had the opportunity to meet Joe while assembling information for an upcoming project proposal at a local non-profit organization. Following a brief phone call, he agreed to meet with me in town, and we discussed the proposal – Joe has been very helpful with explaining various design options and very quickly provided valuable information to help us better understand the options. His helpful approach to working with clients, flexibility and responsiveness have been very much appreciated.

“From the time we first met, I felt comfortable that you were a regular guy and a professional, which confirmed what I had heard. That feeling was reinforced numerous times as you guided the project through the lengthy and complex approval process. Many people advised me that I should have an attorney make the presentations to the various commissions and boards; I believed your low-keyed and non-threatening persona would work better. We all know the results. You have a strong reputation and I’m sure you get many referrals, but if I can ever be of help endorsing your work or sharing the DOCK’s positive process and results, don’t hesitate to ask. (The same people who recommended the use of an attorney also can’t believe the swift and efficient path we experienced to approvals).”
