About Us – Nuvo Builders


More than 20 years ago, Nuvo Builders set out to be the premier builders in The Heights. Today, our commitment to craftsmanship and quality makes us the best choice for construction, renovation and remodeling in Houston’s inner-loop neighborhoods.


Since 1998, Houston Heights resident David Wennagel has renovated historic properties in Houston. But quickly, homeowners in the area saw the quality of his work, and they approached him to provide expertise and advice for a broad range of construction and renovation projects. 

Seeing this demand, Wennagel wanted to expand his offerings to provide a full range of building services: new build construction, renovation, and remodeling, as well as continued restoration. However, the expansion required help. In 2013, Martin Banister joined the company as Managing Director.

Since then, Wennagel and Banister have made Nuvo Builders the premier builders in The Heights and other inner-loop neighborhoods in Houston.
