Open Letter to Architects

Carr Construction specializes in custom building, high-end renovation and restoration. We concentrate on quality—not building an empire. This commitment, held for over twenty-five years doing business in Massachusetts, allows us to express our guiding belief that building excellence enhances and inspires our everyday experience.

Our projects have received awards from historical commissions in recognition of their outstanding craftsmanship. Since 1987, we have also built up our knowledge and use of green materials and best practices, helping progressive architects realize the beautiful and healthy living spaces they visualize.

Because our focus and expertise is residential work—new single-family residential buildings, additions, renovations, and historical restorations—we emphasize superior quality construction and pride ourselves on delivering our projects on schedule and on budget. Our clients consider this rigorous attention to detail special—we consider it routine.

As an architect, you will benefit from our many years of experience in construction management. We know how to adapt our estimating processes to the requirements of your particular project. The detailed estimates and schedules we produce, linked to CSI and AlA formats, provide consistency and flexibility throughout the project's development and construction. We offer value engineering during the pre-construction phase, and we are able to create substantial time and cost savings in the design and construction phases without sacrificing design intent.

Our accurate budgets and schedules are also invaluable for ensuring the harmonious progress of the project. During construction, we place a highly qualified and hands-on supervisor on site to run the day-to-day operations and ensure that subcontractors; and craftsmen are meeting our high standards of quality and punctuality. We feel this approach helps the experience of each stakeholder become more enjoyable and efficient.

We have the flexibility and the resources to apply our estimating, management and construction skills to any style of project.

Thank you for considering Carr Construction, and I look forward to learning more about your upcoming project.
