Fisher College

Boston, MA

Architect: Grassi Design Group
Project size: 8,200 SF
Construction Duration: 12 months

Connaughton Construction completed a full interior renovation to the Student Mall including numerous building code updates. The renovation entailed bringing more light into the Mall by installing custom-made, oversized skylights, which required reworking the structural steel roof systems and deck above. Handicap exits and ramps were constructed for greater accessibility, and a new communications center was built to house fire alarms, closed circuit security monitors and main security panels. A new fire sprinkler system, new wiring and heating were also added.

The mall was fitted with custom mahogany doors, a new mail center and customized millwork. The lighting, painting, carpet and furnishing were designed for an exterior look.

The Connaughton team was wonderful from beginning to end -- contracting was straightforward and clear, very strong communication, project management very strong, high attention to detail, and very fair when it came to price and change orders. The team would not and did not stop until things were just right. The team runs things like a family business -- very accessible and ready to please. We are very happy.

We started out doing a small renovation which , at the last minute, we decided to expand upon. John and his team, despite the problems we created, took it all in stride and were professional and helpful with design suggestions. In particular Project Manager, Leo, was a pleasure to work with. If we find another property to renovate we will definitely use Connaughton's team.
