The best construction safety managers are made from persons that have field experience, an eye for detail, and a passion for creating and maintaining a culture centered around safety.  This role is a natural fit for Joe.  He will draw on his experience in anticipating and managing the risks associated with leading large projects.  We have full confidence in his ability to identify and address the potential safety risks that may be associated with a given project. Early on in his career, Joe followed in his father’s footsteps and knew he always wanted to be in the construction industry. Joe received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UMass Dartmouth and entered the construction industry in 2014.

The days are growing shorter and there is already a chill in the air. As New Englanders, we know what this means, we are sliding down that slippery hill towards winter. While it would be nice to think we could stock our larders and close the doors to ride out the season, we know this is not realistic or fiscally responsible. The question for those of us in Commercial Real Estate becomes, start a project now or wait until the spring thaw has arrived?

Here are the six thoughts I consider when navigating winter construction decisions here in New England:

PROVIDENCE - This past Monday, April 12th, New England Construction hosted a Topping Off Ceremony to celebrate the placing of the last steel beam on the new upcoming Providence Community Health Center.  NEC was joined by Vision 3 Architects and Providence Community Health Center for the signing. For those who don't know, a Topping Off Ceremony is when many members of the project go to the project site and sign the last steel beam of the building frame. The beam is then lifted and secured to the structure, a huge milestone for any project.

Some state and local governments are requiring that every construction project have a COVID-19 section in their safety programs. In order to satisfy this requirement, CRM has developed this document.

2020 exposed a country divided. The racial inequality highlighted during the pandemic, the protests, and the election season forced all of us to look within, question what we know, how we operate, and how we can be better. While reflection is helpful to kickstart change, real initiatives need to be instilled in order to make our workplaces more diverse and inclusive. At NEC, we don’t just want to question – we want to take the steps to actively become a better organization.

“Success demands singleness of purpose.” - Vince Lombardi

Coach Lombardi uses just a few words in this quote, but truly hits the nail on the head. When we consider building the success of businesses in our chosen industries we must have a clearly defined purpose behind every choice and action we make. Throughout 2017 this is something that the leadership team here at New England Construction has given a lot of thought. We devoted a sizeable amount of our time and resources towards bringing our vision for the company into focus; and purpose played a major role in that process.

Ongoing training and development is a key goal for our team at NEC and when we began to plan a new round of opportunities for learning for our Operations Team we delighted to get invited to Rens Welding & Fabricating for a tour of their facility and the chance to dialogue with this steel fabrication subcontractor. During last year’s Subcontractor Open House here at our Rumford Office, Rens brought the idea forward and we thought it sounded like a great opportunity!

The number one key to success in managing a construction project, of any kind is not the materials used, not the budget in place, or even the act of actually putting up the structure but listening. This becomes even more important when you venture into a project that is based on a Construction Management or Design/Build approach. These projects place a greater emphasis on the leadership and direction provided by the General Contractor than a simple traditional project. Clients place their dreams in the hands of their GC and expect success. We have a solid track record on these methods in our 34 years of existence but we also have learned some lessons we think could be useful if you are considering them for your next build! Specifically, four skills are paramount when entering a CM/DB Leadership Role:
