J. Calnan & Associates, CSM Lodging, Group One and Atlantic Management celebrate the topping off The Hilton Garden Inn located in Marlborough, MA.  The new 5-Story, 105,000-square-foot hotel is part of the Marlborough Hills mixed-use “Live-Work-Play-Stay” development.

The upscale Hilton Garden Inn is slated to open Spring, 2016 and will offer 163 high quality hotel rooms, parking, a full service restaurant and bar, fitness room, pool, conference facilities, and breakout rooms.

The Marlborough Hills project is a real estate development that has transformed an outdated, vacant business park, previously home to Hewlett-Packard, into one of the most vibrant mixed-use development centers in New England, featuring commercial office, retail, residential, hotel, and pedestrian space.

The development features up to 1.05 million square feet suited for corporate office space, R&D, bio-tech, and technology uses, 350 new residential units and an estimated 50,000 square feet of retail including a daycare center, restaurant, market, coffee shop, banking, dry-cleaning, and other service amenities all within walking distance.

“We are proud to be part of the Marlborough’s transformation story so far and look forward to watching it flourish.   With major corporations like Quest Diagnostics and GE Healthcare; residential developments such as Avalon Bay and the future retail developments along with the new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, Marlborough is truly a “live, work, play, stay” destination,” says Stephen Robak, Executive Vice President / Partner, with J. Calnan & Associates.

J. Calnan & Associates Completes 3 Summer Slammer Projects for Babson College

By | News | No Comments

9/5/2014, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, a leader in providing preconstruction and construction management services in the Academic, Corporate, Healthcare and Science & Technology markets, recently announced the completion of three renovation projects for Babson College in time for the school year to begin.

The projects included renovations to 2 residence buildings, Keith Hall and Park Manor North, as well as renovations to the lecture center at Olin Hall. The Keith Hall project required substantial renovations to two towers that provide special-interest housing for students who are passionate about by Greek life. In total, 33 bedrooms, 12 floors (6 per tower), 10 bathrooms, common areas and kitchenettes were all upgraded for the students. Additionally, the towers required new mechanical and HVAC systems. Park Manor North, another dormitory, was a smaller project that included renovations to all of the bathrooms as well as new MEFP systems throughout. At Olin Hall, the JC&A team converted space in the lecture center to serve as a feature studio for classrooms moving forward. The design loosely represents a garage (where Steve Jobs created Apple) and is intended to inspire Babson’s MBA students.

On a side note, JC&A is very proud of Babson’s involvement with Team IMPACT, a non-profit founded, in part, by members of the JC&A team. The program, founded 3 years ago, matches children who have life threatening illnesses with college athletic teams to improve their quality of life socially and psychologically. Children gain strength, a sense of belonging and support, and, in turn, student athletes are taught lessons about courage and resiliency that they can’t learn in a classroom. Currently, Team IMPACT has over 10,000 program participants of which Babson College is a strong supporter. To date, Babson boasts 6 new Beavers on their roster including: 15 year old, Alex Chamoun, Men’s Basketball; 11 year old Brendan Barrie, Men’s Baseball; 12 year old Harry Clark, Men’s Lacrosse; 7 year old Lily Swallow, Softball; 11 year old Olivia Bonfilio, Field Hockey and 10 year old Timmy Dowdy, Men’s Ice Hockey.
