Tap into decades of historic building construction experience
M&A welcomes questions and conversation on the challenges of preservation construction with design professionals who are engaged in grappling with historical construction at a specific building. We can furnish budgetary guidelines, but more important, we can offer our perspective on how choices in design solutions will affect cost, timeframe, and sequencing of work in the field. We have lived through decades of being in the field, executing all phases of work in historic structures, and we can share our experience and perspective.
Bring a collaborative player to the team
When a part of the construction team, M&A will collaborate with the designer and the CM and client during the design development phase to survey conditions and identify preservation technical issues and recommend appropriate products and methods. During the construction, we can work with the design team to solve technical historic building issues which rise up as undisclosed conditions and affect the work scope. Our objective as partners is to contribute to solutions which are respectful of the historic structure, the budget, and the schedule of the project. Safety is always paramount. We are proud to be a MA AGC Merit Safety Award winner.

“One advantage of working with M&A is M&A has the ability to forecast complications that may not be fully addressed in construction documents well in advance of their arising as problems during the work’s unfolding on site. Their experience with sensitive building conservation over past decades makes it possible to manage project time and costs more simply because of fewer delays and less unforeseen labor. Workmanship stays at a very high standard from project to project.”
