11/6/2010, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, Inc., one of New England’s leading construction management firms specializing in world-class pre-construction services and challenging construction projects, recently participated in the IIDA’s Annual Fashion Show as the first construction management firm to ever do so.
This year’s theme was “revolution” and as such, each team is required to create their fashion designs based on their concept only using products supplied by their vendors. JC&A partnered with MDesigns, Color Kinetics, Parksite and Sherwin Williams to showcase the lifecycle of the construction industry. The entry demonstrated how J. Calnan & Associates is leading the charge by continuously evolving to exceed client expectations and raising the bars to embrace the limitless possibilities of today’s information age. The designs illustrated how the industry has evolved from the traditional hands-on iron worker of the 1950’s to the more polished, safety conscious worker of the 1980’s to the modern career woman and new technologies of today…..and beyond.
Using paint cans, drops cloths, Tyvek, LED lights and fan decks, the team was able to bring their concept to life while making a great first impression on the design community.
