Meet Our Project Managers

123 Remodeling’s Project Management Team Philosophy

  • Our Project Managers (PM) are thoroughly familiar with the office and field aspects of Remodels and New Residential Construction.
  • Each one of our PMs enjoys being in a hub position highly visible to all office and field employees.
  • Our PMs understands that, when it comes to remodeling, the journey should be as excellent as the destination.


Ariel Darmoni – Operations Manager / Principal

As Operations Manager, Ariel provides hands-on support for both our staff and clients. During his 16+ years in the construction industry, he has overseen hundreds of remodeling projects, many of which are in Chicago’s high-rise condominiums.

Ariel’s familiarity with the needs of condo associations, building management companies, and the tenants they serve gives 123 Remodeling an advantage over contractors who have not learned the ins-and-outs of these homeowners needs. As a project manager, Ariel’s creativity and practical knowledge truly stands out. See the partial list of his projects below for an idea of his abilities.

When not on a project site, shopping with a client, or meeting with suppliers, Ariel is playing soccer, walking his Chocolate Lab Zena, or spending time with his wife and family.
