Welcome to the Advanced Group, based in Mystic, Connecticut, where we take pride in our journey from humble beginnings to becoming a reputable name in the construction and remodeling industry.
Formerly known as Advanced Improvements, Advanced Group, LLC found its inception in 2002 within the picturesque enterprise region of Eastern Connecticut. From the outset, our focus was clear – to deliver excellence in construction services, with a specialization in new home construction, residential and commercial remodeling, and renovation work. Our founder, David Preka, embarked on this journey with a small crew and a vision to transform spaces and exceed expectations.

In our early years, our efforts primarily centered around residential renovations and remodeling. With dedication and determination, we quickly garnered a reputation for our meticulous craftsmanship and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. As we gradually expanded, so did the scale of our projects and the size of our teams. What began as small repairs and renovations grew into full-fledged new construction builds, large-scale commercial endeavors, and transformative remodeling ventures.

David Preka and his team consistently prioritize the needs and desires of our clients, earning trust and loyalty along the way. Today, our workforce comprises more than 40 skilled contractors and administrators, collaborating seamlessly with over 60 trusted subcontractors. With a track record of serving over 4,700 satisfied customers, we stand as a testament to the power of putting customers at the heart of everything we do.
