After more than 140 years in business, we let our work, including those we work for and with, speak to the quality and cohesion of our projects. Below are brief examples of the experiences that clients and subcontractors have had working with us in recent years.
"Connolly Brothers was the perfect fit for our project [given their] experience with designing and building advanced technology facilities like ours. They were able to meet our stringent budget and schedule restraints and deliver a high-quality building."
Doug Olson, Chief Executive Officer
Harmonic Drive
"Institutions like ours have to approach construction projects differently than most commercial operations, and Connolly has been a terrific partner, not only on the construction itself, but in working with us on estimates, scheduling, planning, budgeting, and management. They are pros and their longevity is testament to how they treat and interact with their clients. Not many companies can say they have been family-owned for five generations, and in addition to professional practices, they are just nice people to work with."
Robert Monk, Director of Facilities and Security Peabody Essex Museum (PEM)
"Connolly is well known in the commercial/industrial design-build world and understood the approach we wanted to take with our new headquarters. Thanks to Connolly's expertise and diligence, we were able to stay within our budget and achieve our design and construction goals."
Jessica French Goyette, Vice President
W.L. French Excavating Corporation
"I contacted Connolly Brothers and quickly realized the design-build model would allow me to streamline development of my new venture while allowing us to be more flexible and responsive to changes as we worked through design and construction. We couldn't be more pleased with the end result."
John Collins, Chief Executive Brewer
Great Marsh Brewing Co.
"It's never easy to take a facility that was originally designed for the sales and servicing of automobiles and convert it to allow for the maintenance of tractors, straight trucks and trailers but Connolly had the drive to deliver no matter the challenges placed in front of them. Their leadership, knowledge, and ability to think outside the box were instrumental in the successful renovation of our facility."
Brian Dacosta, Manager Planning & Construction
Ryder System, Inc.
"Over the past 15 years, we have worked with Connolly Brothers on a number of projects and we really enjoy the team atmosphere and collaboration. The project team listens to our ideas and incorporates recommendations. At the end of the day, we all want a successful project and a happy client."
Bill Claflin, Chief Estimator

"It is truly a pleasure to work with Connolly Brothers. Their staff values subcontractors' knowledge and we can always get an answer in a timely manner, allowing us to adhere to the project schedule."
Dave Allen, President
