1/14/2011, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, Inc., one of New England’s leading construction management firms specializing in preconstruction services and challenging construction projects, was recently awarded the inaugural Impact Award from Building Impact for its commitment to giving back to the community.
The announcement was made recently at R.E.Action’s 2011 kickoff event attended by over 150 people across the real estate industry as well as many non-profit organizations.
Upon receiving the award, Jay Calnan discussed the importance of giving back and getting the entire company involved with philanthropy while highlighting the benefits of doing well by doing good.
“As business leaders it is important to give back to the communities in which we work and live in positive ways,” said Jay Calnan, President of J. Calnan & Associates. “Philanthropy is part of our company culture at JC&A and we are very fortunate to have assembled an unbelievable team of professionals over the last 15 years who are not only really good at what they do, but extremely likable and committed to giving back.” In addition to crediting his team, he stated that, “Building Impact’s R.E.Action program has been another outlet for us to be able to reach more causes while partnering with other like-minded companies and individuals across our industry. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the years to come.”
J. Calnan & Associates has always been involved with and continues to give time and financial resources to organizations like The United Way, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children’s Hospital, and the Jimmy Fund. Last year, JC&A had the opportunity to grant a Make-A-Wish child his wish of having a pirate ship themed tree house; build a new bakery for the St. Coletta and Cardinal Cushing School of Massachusetts and convert a basement into a handicapped accessible living area for a child recently involved in a hockey accident.
