Calare Properties
Milford, MA
Connolly Brothers Inc. completed a 52,000 square-foot design-build fit-up project, located in Milford, MA for Calare Properties. The facility serves as the new Commonwealth of Massachusetts 911 Public Safety Answering Point, State 911 Training Center, Municipal Police Training Committee Academy, and Offices for the Massachusetts Department of Correction Professional Standards Unit.

The two-story building was vacant for seven years, thereby presenting challenges for Connolly's design team. At first, it was critical to ascertain an understanding of the existing infrastructure, such as underground plumbing and structural components. Connolly proceeded to update the structural requirements, such as reinforcing second-floor and roof bar joists, strengthening steel column brace frames, and creating four new grade beams, in order to meet updated building code requirements for use group risk category of the building. Connolly provided additional accessible entrances and replaced the exterior stairs with new granite.

Connolly served as both Architect of Record and Construction Manager for this design-build project.

"This project provides a state-of-the-art facility for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to support its public safety initiatives. We are very grateful to have partnered with Connolly Brothers and the user state agencies in successfully completing this complex redevelopment." - Bailey Duffy, Calare Properties
