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.
"Working with your company has been a pleasure. Your attention to detail allowed us to preserve the historical value of the building while totally renovating its infrastructure. Your willingness to go the extra mile to obtain the desired results earned you our respect. At all times you showed professionalism and never allowed the pressure of the job to interfere with its proper management."
"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."
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.
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.
