New City Shopping Center, located at 44 North Main Street, is excited to announce that it will undergo a comprehensive renovation starting May 9, 2024. The planned enhancements are designed to provide a 21st-century shopping experience.

Located in the heart of New City, New York, New City Shopping Center has been serving the Clarkstown community since 1989. It is home to a diverse range of stores, restaurants, and service providers, dedicated to meeting the needs of local residents and visitors alike.

The renovations are being overseen by Callahan Construction, a full-service construction management company, and will address all facets of the center, from structural upgrades to aesthetic improvements, including new landscaping, updated lighting, and modernized storefronts. The anchor, Inserra Supermarket’s New City Shoprite, will also undergo renovations, all of which aim to create a more welcoming and accessible environment for all visitors.

The project is expected to be completed in phases over the next 6 months to minimize disruptions to shoppers and businesses. The center will remain open during the renovation, with all businesses operating at normal hours.

The life sciences market is rapidly changing – that much we know. While no one can predict the future, it is possible to build a cutting-edge laboratory and research facility that will adapt to the changing needs of scientists and researchers. That’s what is unfolding at 440 Bedford, a completely new approach to lab space in the coveted Lexington submarket.

440 Bedford Street is a new 6-story, 335,000 GSF Class AA speculative life science lab and office building being built by Callahan Construction. When finished, the building will include incubator lab space, graduator lab space, lab-ready spaces, a café, fitness center and other amenities. The building will also feature a retail and restaurant space on the first level and several outdoor amenities, along with a 6-level parking garage with parking for 575 vehicles. Put simply, this isn’t just a place to come work; it’s a destination for collaboration and an extension of one’s lifestyle.

Callahan’s pre-construction expertise was on full display during the early phases of the project, as the construction team discovered soil deficiencies that had the potential to cause substantial delays to the project schedule and significant costs to the budget if not resolved as early as possible. The preconstruction team as well as Callahan’s Site Division were able to find solutions to the problem that kept the project on schedule, saved money for the client, and strengthened trust between all parties on the project.

440 Bedford will feature numerous high-end touches, including modern interiors designed to inspire, flooded with natural light and plenty of amenities to keep scientists balanced. And with its location in the sought-after Lexington and Hartwell Avenue submarket, 440 Bedford offers ease of access to both the building and nature, not to mention proximity to other innovative companies and industries along with mass transit.

“Callahan is excited to once again leverage its experience with complex projects including laboratories and research facilities, along with our robust portfolio of pre-construction services, to build 440 Bedford,” said Steve Callahan Jr., Vice President – Business Development, Callahan Construction. “The team behind this project in Lexington knows how important it is to bring this cutting-edge research space to market, and we look forward to seeing it filled with the people and projects changing our world for the better.”

Waltham, MA – Callahan Construction Managers announced that Lincoln Property Company’s 300 Third Avenue project in Waltham has been awarded LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Callahan provided construction management services at this 4-story, 139,000sf Class A facility, located in the Rt. 128 Tech Corridor.

Representatives of Callahan say that, in concert with DiMella Shaffer Architects, the firm was selected to oversee the construction of 300 Third Avenue thanks to its deep experience in laboratory construction as well as green building, and that when the project wrapped up in early 2022, it brought to market four stories of laboratory and office space with highly efficient mechanical, chemical storage and utility areas to service the most demanding laboratory operations.

From a sustainability standpoint, 300 Third Avenue offers a variety of green-focused features designed to support efficient building operations and sustainable lifestyle choices. Attaining Gold certification denotes that a building has excelled in its sustainable design and operation, securing over 60% of the available LEED points. Features like electric car charging stations, bike storage and showers, and shuttle access to MBTA Waltham are all designed to help building occupants make decisions that help support reduced carbon emissions and road-going traffic.

In addition to achieving LEED Gold status, 300 Third Avenue is also WiredScore Gold Certified. This certification recognizes and promotes digitally connected buildings across the globe, and proves that a building has the digital infrastructure in place to support companies now and in the future.

Representatives of Callahan say the firm makes every effort to provide clients with sustainable and efficient materials and equipment options, adding that the company currently has 30 Passive House certified licensed professionals on staff, and is proud to have leveraged this in-house expertise to achieve LEED Gold at the Waltham site.

“The need for sustainable building and flexible laboratory space has never been more important in today’s market, with tenants looking for options that will both serve their existing and future space requirements, along with providing healthy environments for employees,” said Steve Callahan Jr., vice president of business development, Callahan. “300 Third Avenue is a perfect example of how teams can work together to create highly sought after space while reducing the building’s impact on the environment, and we are happy to see it receive this impressive certification from the USGBC.”

Annual analysis of mid-sized Massachusetts companies celebrates organizations  achieving exceptional growth

BRIDGEWATER – March 7, 2024 – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan),a full-service construction management company headquartered in Bridgewater, Mass., is excited to announce that it has been named to the Boston Business Journal’s 2024 Middle Market Leaders list, which will be celebrated at a gala event in March.

This is Callahan’s first year being named to the prestigious list tracking the 50 highest-growth middle-market companies in Massachusetts. The ranking is based on Business Journal research and includes private and public companies across multiple industries that had annual revenue between $25 million and $1 billion for 2020, 2021, and 2022.

Callahan’s history stretches back over 70 years in the Northeast, and today is one of the largest open-shop, family-owned construction management companies in the region. The company prides itself on providing clients with industry-leading preconstruction and construction management services across market segments including life sciences, affordable housing, market-rate multifamily, senior housing, hospitality, corporate interiors, retail, educational, and other markets.

Companies named to the BBJ’s list are ranked by a weighted score that takes into account the percent change in revenue between 2020 and 2022 and the actual value difference in revenue during the same time period. The score is meant to mitigate the difference between revenue growth at smaller companies versus larger companies within the middle market. Companies that did not record revenue growth from 2021 to 2022 were disqualified.

“Callahan Construction and Ironworkers Local 7 have had a working relationship for over 10 years.  In our experience, Patrick Callahan, the firm’s president, and Callahan Construction live up to their reputation of a company based on ethical, fair, and professional principles,” said Vincent Coyle Jr., business manager, Local 7 Ironworkers. “Ironworkers Local 7 is proud to have our members working on Callahan projects and looks forward to continued success in the future.  Congratulations to Callahan Construction on your well-deserved recognition as a Middle Market Leader!”

This is the fifth year of the Middle Market Leaders program. A final, ranked listing of the Middle Market Leaders will be unveiled at the awards event scheduled for March 20.

Associated Builders and Contractors system recognizes contractors that maintain robust safety programs in jobsite operations

BOSTON – February 22, 2024 – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan),a full-service construction management company based in Bridgewater, Mass., announced today it has achieved Platinum-level certification in the Associated Builders and ContractorsSTEP Safety Management System. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP is a proven system that provides the framework to measure, strengthen and build industry-leading safety programs that enable top-performing ABC members to achieve incident rates nearly seven times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics construction industry average.

Callahan’s senior leadership is committed to a zero-incident safety culture that empowers employees to solve real-world safety problems via comprehensive pre-construction planning, daily jobsite safety meetings, and direct interaction with building owners and occupants. With over 50 years of combined experience, the company’s safety team is responsible for multiple job site visits per week to assist with inspections, incident management, and job safety meetings with subcontractors.

“At Callahan, we have placed a priority on safety to ensure the well-being of our workers as well as seamless operations on our clients’ project sites,” said Adam Ringo, director of safety, Callahan Construction. “Thanks to every member of our team, from pre-construction managers to jobsite supervisors, we have built a culture of safety that everyone takes pride in. We are grateful to ABC for providing an impressive framework that helps contractors make safety job 1.”

STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing health and safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents. Callahan earned high marks in several categories, including its low EMR and incidence rate, the latter of which is less than half of the national average; a robust new hire safety orientation for employees, which includes a review of company rules, NFPA hot work training, and fall protection training; and leadership team participation in safety programs, from preconstruction planning to conducting hazard analysis within each scope of work.

“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like Callahan to actively build health and safety into their culture, creating industry-leading, holistic safety programs to protect their workers and deliver for their clients,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development. “STEP measures performance on key components, strengthens and expands best practices and builds safety culture. Our people are our greatest asset, and I commend Callahan for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raise the bar of safety performance.”

According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, can reduce recordable incidents up to 85%, making the best-performing companies 688% safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.

Callahan Construction Completes The 600 for V10 Development

80,000 SF mixed-use development features 85 residential units, restaurant, and commercial space

BOSTON – August 15, 2023 – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan),a full-service construction management company based in Bridgewater, Mass., announced today the completion of The 600 mixed-use project for V10 Development, a real estate development company specializing in multi-family mixed-use projects throughout New England. Located on the 600 block of Broadway in Everett, this 80,000 SF of ground-up new construction is steps away from public transportation and the Forbes Five-Star Encore Boston Harbor Resort. The six-story residential complex features 85 residential units ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom units with high-end finishes. Featuring an array of amenities such as a restaurant, rooftop deck, commercial space, and 37 parking spaces, The 600 is fully leased. A ribbon cutting was held with City of Everett officials on April 27th.

Callahan was retained to provide pre-construction and construction management services. Two existing buildings on the site were demolished to make room for the new apartment complex. The ground floor was constructed in a podium style and contains the residential lobby, two retail rental areas, mechanical spaces, the loading dock, and parking. Floors two through six are identical wood frame construction and each includes 17 residential units with quartz counters in the bathrooms and kitchens. The roof level has a 4,500 SF roof deck area which will include enclosed restrooms, stairs and elevator lobby, and outdoor seating and cooking areas for use by tenants.

“Back in the summer of 2019, we had the idea of providing comfortable, moderately priced units at the heart of a vibrant street in Everett,” said John Tocco, managing director of V10 Development. “Thanks to Callahan and the rest of the project team, we are proud to deliver the 600 to the crown of Broadway and spur additional development throughout the Business District in Everett.

The 600 was designed by Context, a collaborative design workshop. From the beginning, Context embraced the fact that being a large building, on the top of the hill, on one of the busiest streets in Everett, meant that the project would be prominent from many different vantage points.  The design team sought to embrace its important location, allowing the building to stand out while being sympathetic to the surrounding neighborhood.  In order to keep from feeling too massive and bulky, Context used cantilevered bays and changes in facade materials to break down the facades into something more consistent with neighborhood residential architecture.  Masonry was used at the street level to provide a visually familiar and human scaled pedestrian experience.

The project team for The 600 includes:
