Q&D first opened its doors in 1964 when Norm Dianda and friend Lawrence Quadrio successfully negotiated their first project…a $600 kitchen remodel.
Born in Reno, NV, in May of 1939, Norm grew up in rural south Reno, the son of a railroad worker. He later moved to his grandfather's farm where he always had an interest in working with his hands and building projects. As a teenager, he went to work for a significant person in his life: George Sergeant, owner of the Sergeant Showcase and Fixture Shop where he honed his carpentry skills and business acumen.
Though Mr. Quadrio has passed, Norm has kept the "Q" in honor of his friend and business partner.
Norm has continued to emphasize that everything Q&D is involved with will be built with the three guiding principles that started the organization…service, integrity and quality.
Today, Norm is still the heart, soul and official tour giver of Q&D. Why? Form Norm, seeing roads built and buildings come out of the ground will always be a passion.
From giving generously to fund youth organizations, support school sports teams, provide outreach assistance to local schools and engaging in university outreach activities, to supporting national charitable causes like multiple sclerosis research and breast cancer awareness, Norm is truly committed to making the communities in which Q&D works better places to live.
Norm married the love of his life, Laura Caramella, nearly 50 years ago, and they have two boys; Mike and Chris.

Norman Dianda, Owner In high school shop class, Norm Dianda crafted a coffee table that pleased him so much that he went home and told his dad he was done mowing lawns and on to building cabinets. He began working nights at Sargent Showcases and Fixture Company. After graduation, Norm developed a passion for building bigger things and became a general contractor in 1964. But he never forgot his roots as a cabinetmaker. He launched the Artéfice millwork manufacturing facility in 1979 to ensure the finest finishes for his construction projects.
As Owner of Artéfice, Norm does the following:
He makes certain Artéfice has the right people and the right equipment to build the finest quality millwork in the world. He stands behind his promise of delivering premium quality on time and within budget.
