“JC&A has been a trusted partner of iRobot for over ten years now.  They have built over 500,000 SF of office, R&D, and manufacturing space, including our World HQ in Bedford, MA.  These renovations often took place in fully occupied buildings that can be a nuisance to employees when not managed properly.  JC&A is not only highly knowledgeable and resourceful, but they bring a sense of calm and predictability to our team through their constant communication that allows us at iRobot to focus on our essential work designing and building home robots.”

“JC&A, as the construction lead, was an easy choice. They brought their actual team to the table day one one site; we met everyone from the superintendent to the project managers. I knew that any team that had that level of transparency and willingness to put who’s going to do the job right in front of us were going to be a good team to work with.”

“Working with the JC&A team from preconstruction through closeout has been a great experience.  They helped us plan, budget, and deliver a project on time and budget.  As we came across unique challenges, the JC&A team had solutions, and their experience helped us make informed decisions throughout the project.  The end product is phenomenal, and working with the JC&A has been a great collaborative experience.”

“J. Calnan and team has exceeded expectations and delivered a great building that all of us should be very proud of. I look forward to the next project with the A Team!”

“The JC&A team has been a tremendous partner to Middlesex Savings Bank. We have worked together to execute a multi-year renovation strategy of our entire real estate portfolio of retail bank branches and office buildings. Starting at the RFP process, the JC&A executives took the time to appropriately staff our projects. The entire team is focused on providing quality and value- from the Project Executives, to the Project Managers, to the Construction Supervisors. The consistent JC&A staffing from project to project has allowed us to identify potential issues, reduce schedules, improve workmanship, and identify value engineering opportunities. These efforts have allowed Middlesex Savings Bank to make informed business decisions and has directly contributed to cost savings.”

“Throughout the lengthy process of designing, planning and building the (Skating Club of Boston’s) 180,000 sf facility, JC&A was receptive to the Club’s ideas, and responsive to our many requests for specialized focus or contractors. Your team was very open, and showed great patience and understanding in working with a first-time builder. You generously educated us about the many and varied details of the project at every step of the process.

With no surprise for a project of this magnitude, there were several unexpected challenges along the way, including a several-week shutdown necessitated by a worldwide pandemic. We worked through them together, with our mutual respect never failing, and JC&A’s support and partnership always greatly appreciated. Frankly, I cannot think of a better testament to the success of this project than our mutual respect never failing.”

“JC&A is more than a construction management firm. They have been true partners and trusted advisors for our team for over 10 years. As we source new development deals, we trust and rely on the information we receive from the JC&A team. Having partnered with on many large development projects over the years, I know from personal experience that JC&A’s main focus on any project is maintaining the relationship with the client and putting the clients’ best interest first.”

“Over the past ten years I have had the pleasure of working with JCA on a myriad of diverse and challenging lab and office construction projects ranging in size and cost at Biogen.  Most recently I have engaged them to design and build a GMP manufacturing site for Minovia Therapeutics’ US Commercial Operations.  Their ability to align customer needs with the appropriate contracting methods and staff has afforded these projects much success.  Their ability to focus on cost and schedule while maintaining the utmost level of quality and safety appears to be the foundation of their business model.”

“I was continually impressed with the professionalism of the JC&A crew as well as the ‘team spirit’ attitude that we were collectively serving a common client, and that as a team, we would exceed all expectations.  It was indeed a pleasure to work with you all and I look forward to the next time I can be part of the team.”

“Your team never faltered and pulled this off with all the major items we required to move in.  Along the way they accommodated the majority of our change requests on the fly, again while meeting a tight timeline.  Throughout the entire project they were professional, approachable, and truly “teamed” with us on our project.  As a fast growing company, we want to work with companies that work at our pace and your team certainly did.”

“The comments and reactions to the transformation of this space have been amazing!  The process and eventual outcome of this challenging project could not have been realized without the commitment and support from your team. This was a challenging project on several levels, but with the professionalism and expertise of your team we absolutely exceeded expectations.”

“Your persistence, leadership, talent and ownership perspective puts you in the highest rank of the “best and brightest’ in your field. I can safely say that you have built a coveted “trust relationship’ with the BJ’s core project team that will generate ongoing and future business for years to come.”
