MAYNARD, MA – JM Coull (JMC), in collaboration with Maugel Architects, has begun renovations and an addition at the West Concord Union Church in Concord, MA.

As a local landmark, it has been servicing Concord and surrounding towns since 1894, holding services on Sundays and supporting the community through service and financial donations. The church is actively involved in local organizations such as Minute Man Arc for Human Services, Concord Prison Outreach, and Alcoholics Anonymous, and supports area families of military personnel.
WALTHAM MA – June 8, 2017 – Delphi Construction, Inc. Vice President, Joe Mastromatteo announced today the completion of Leyden Woods, a $50m affordable housing development in Greenfield, Massachusetts for its client, The Community Builders.
The modular construction project consisted of 200 units in 49 buildings comprising 8 courts. Design was provided by Davis Square Architects of Somerville with modular manufacturing from Simplex Homes of Scranton, PA.
“Delphi is very pleased to have turned over the eighth and final court of this large scale construction project to our client. I’d like to congratulate The Community Builders on another successful effort to provide high quality, affordable housing that strengthens the neighborhood and the community. I would also like to commend Davis Square Architects for their outstanding design work and Simplex Homes for the high quality manufacturing evident in each modular unit. Most importantly, I’d like to thank all of the project stakeholders for the spirit of teamwork and cooperation that helped make this project such a resounding success.” Mastromatteo said.
The Mobile Big Room features a large IdeaPaint™ wall that doubles as a dry erase board to encourage brainstorming and collaboration in an open floor layout that fosters visual management, a Lean practice that places in plain view all tools, parts and production activities.
This type of ongoing collaboration has proven to be effective within the industry. A study published by the International Journal of Project Management concluded: "Team integration should be an aspiration because it leads to eﬃciency of the delivery process and cost eﬀectiveness through elimination of waste. Competitiveness and proﬁtability are increased which enable ﬁrms to deliver better value for money and meet clients' needs."

As part of our Strategic Workforce Initiative in conjunction with our Gould Construction Institute and Merit Apprenticeship Program, ABC is launching a new website designed to promote construction careers, and we could use your help.
We are seeking photos of your employees at work so we can illustrate some of the different aspects of construction careers. Photos should be of high enough quality so they will view well on the website. Photos of employees working are preferable, but we will also accept posed photos of employees in company apparel or with hard hats, or other photos that convey construction in some way.
Please send photos in jpeg, png or pdf format and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions, email Greg Beeman or call him at 781-273-0123.
