6/15/2009, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, one of New England’s leading construction management firms specializing in pre-construction services and challenging construction projects, was recently awarded the construction contract for Hinckley, Allen & Snyder, LLC located in downtown Hartford, CT. The project team consisting of JC&A, Symmes Maini & McKee and Cresa Partners will completely renovate the 18th floor of a twenty-three story high-rise building.
The 23,100 square foot project includes the renovation of 41 offices with high-end finishes including stone tops and walnut wood; 5 conference rooms with state-of-the-art equipment including cutting-edge Audio/Visual Systems with motorized overhead projection screens as well as a new welcoming lobby area with a custom designed, high-end reception desk. The team will also upgrade the current HVAC System and existing restrooms as well as complete an additional “private” ADA compliant bathroom.
Working within an occupied Hi-Rise building in downtown Hartford is extremely challenging. There has to be constant communication and coordination between the building owner and the management company for any and all construction activity. Because the floors are occupied, daily construction occurrences, including use of the freight elevator, are strictly monitored and very limited. Therefore, all material deliveries and most construction activity require prior approval from the management company.
“As a client of HA & S for nearly 14 years, we have forged a strong friendship and trusting relationship with their team. They are very familiar with our company, our reputation in the industry and our history of success working with high-profile clients. The services provided to us from HA & S have been second-to-none. We are thrilled for the opportunity to reciprocate and show them first-hand how we provide our world-class construction services,” said Jay Calnan, President, J. Calnan & Associates.
