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.

Norman L. Dianda

Q&D Construction Inc.
"You do it right the first time or you don,t do it at all."Norm Dianda, 67, president of Q&D Construction Inc., first heard these words as a child, from his father.He remains mindful of them today as he runs his Northern Nevada general contracting firm.
"I feel I,m just an old country boy who wants to do things right," he said.Dianda is in fact a native Nevadan who graduated from Reno High School and then served six years as a machinist in the Nevada Air National Guard.A year later, he founded Q&D with Lawrence Quadrio (the Q in Q&D).
Over the years Dianda grew the business into the 1,000-employee company it is today, adding divisions along the way.One such division, Artéfice by Dianda, a cabinet and millwork company, drew upon Dianda,s early experience during high school as an apprentice cabinetmaker for Sargent Showcases and Fixture Co., a cabinet manufacturing company.Dianda still does woodwork today, but as a hobby, along with steelwork and silversmithing.He crafts furniture, lamps, bowls, picture frames , whatever he,s in the mood to make."I still love to tinker with wood and work with my hands," he said.
...
The sudden loss of two pivotal members of Q&D,s executive staff created an enormous leadership void that Dianda stepped in to fill."It left me in a position to have to scramble real fast and real hard," Dianda said."All in all, I overcame it and got through it."
Dianda has run the company solo ever since.He said his job entails "putting out fires", developing a great work environment, and creating relationships with clients"The vision for my company is always this: Grow the business to the market demand of my customers.That,s how I built Q&D," he said.
He does, however, depend on a competent staff, one on which he knows he can rely."The day-to-day operations are all handled by my management team," he said.Dianda believes giving back to the community is necessary.Over the years he has served and continues to serve on numerous committees and boards.One project that was special to Dianda was the relocation and restoration of Huffaker Elementary School, which he attended as a youth.He also donates regularly to 10 non-profit organizations."This community has been very good to me," he said."I want to see that Renostays Reno, even though it,s growing."
In his down time (Dianda regularly puts in up to 60 hours a week), he likes to hunt big game with his two sons, Mike and Chris (they,ve been doing it since the boys were 6), spend time with his grandson, Joey, and relax with his wife, Laura, at their ranch in Honey Lake Valley.If Dianda had the opportunity to live his life over, he said, without question he would run his own business again.
