Meet Team Alair


Peter Michelson


As a fourth generation construction professional, Peter grew up helping out with the family business in the Boston area, and later worked as a carpenter for various companies in San Francisco and the Hudson Valley region. In 2001, Peter combined his previous education and work experience into Renewal Design-Build, an Atlanta home remodeling company, and built Renewal into one of Atlanta’s premier home renovation companies.  Peter was thrilled to join the Alair family, where his passion thrives for providing clients with the highest standards of quality construction and the best customer satisfaction possible. Peter and his team earn a trust from their clients seldom seen in the construction industry, which in turn continues to attract a team of talented and outstanding professionals. Peter is a graduate of the Leadership DeKalb Class of 2011, the 2014-2015 President of the Rotary Club of Decatur, a past board member of The Waldorf School of Atlanta, and mentors in Emory’s Start:ME program. Peter  also coaches baseball for Druid Hills Youth Sports since 2010, and enjoys bass fishing and wilderness trips with his wife and two sons.

David Michelson

Growing up on project sites in the family construction business in Boston, David is a fourth-generation construction professional.  After graduating from Syracuse University with a BA in Psychology, David spent the next four years working as a project manager for the Ben A. Borenstein Company on a multitude of commercial projects throughout Chicago, Metro Baltimore, Denver and Southern California. David returned to Boston in 1989 with his new wife Toby and spent the next 15 working in the family construction business.  Projects ranged from historic library renovations to hospitals.  In 2004 David moved to Atlanta with his family to join forces with his brother Peter as a full partner in  Renewal Design-Build. David gives a lot of his time to community.  He is an executive board member of the Atlanta NARI chapter, Vice President at his synagogue, youth baseball coach and a Red Cross Disaster Action Team volunteer. When not volunteering he enjoys golf, rooting for his beloved Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics and getting out for walks with his dog Bucky.
