Beacon Hill, MA
Architect: Grassi Design Group
Project Size: 5,000 SF
Construction Duration: 11 months
Connaughton Construction recently completed the historic restoration and addition to this five story brick townhouse located in historic Beacon Hill.
"The wonderful team we worked with was very reliable and did everything to make us happy, which is hard when a job is such an extensive on as ours was. We also really appreciated that the budget was kept where planned and the work completed on schedule."
The project featured a complete interior renovation, removal of an old back addition, excavation, and underpinning of walls for a foundation for the new addition. It included reframing, structural, electrical, plumbing, HVAC systems and installation of a new elevator. Plus all high-end luxury finishes from custom cabinets, marble and granite baths to a wine cellar and a custom designed conservatory and garden. All successfully accomplished while working in a very tight space with limited access and neighbors on all sides.
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.
"Connaughton Construction has always managed to provide quality, good value and aggressive schedules on our projects, when getting one or two of these is usually difficult. We always push Connaughton to produce complex projects on difficult sites with demanding clients, and they have never let us down."
"Thanks for your very impressive value-engineering breakdown on very short notice. I wish that I could find GC's like you in NYC - you are a pleasure to work with. I have never encountered such attention to detail in 19 years of practice."
"We were thrilled by the work of the Connaughton team. Your focus on quality and attention to detail was fantastic. Our project came in on budget and on schedule. You were always ready to do the work to get things done just the way we wanted, and built our home as though you were going to move in."
