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!

There’s a chill in the air (most days at least!) so it’s hard to focus on anything related to our projects aside from keeping the job sites warm & working and forecasting the snow potential, but this is actually a great time to start thinking about the things you want to accomplish during the summer. That’s right, I said summer. Specifically if you are in an educational environment you know that often the summer provides your only window of time to make some major improvements while your campus population is lower than normal. Perfect timing, no? Well the other factor is that this wonderful window is small, like barely a month or two at times small. So what are you to do if you have objectives to meet?

There are many tales told about the search for the perfect fit. Goldilocks was trying to find the bed that was just right. The Prince traveled the country side with a glass slipper in his hand looking for the foot of his true love, Cinderella. Much in the same way, a property or business owner is looking for the right General Contractor to complete their project. They cannot just put the names of all local GCs into a hat and pick one randomly, and achieve true success. They cannot just look at one factor, say bottom line bid cost or project resume, and know they have found “the one.” And if you can believe it, General Contractors have to be just as vigilant in their search for the right clients. I know, I know. It sounds preposterous to think that a GC might pass up work or pass up money they are offered in pursuit of the right fit with a client but it is a tact that the most successful will surely employ. The idea here is that regardless of what side of the table you sit, there are going to be key factors that help you determine if you have found the proper business relationship to ensure the success of your project. What are those factors? New England Construction client and founding partner of the Peregrine Group LLC, Jordan Stone and NEC President, Matt Sluter were happy to share their perspectives on this topic.

When it comes to metaphors, never has the phrase “diving into the deep end of the pool” been more appropriate than in the case of our construction of the Pods Swimming Facility in East Providence, RI. Pods is a collaborative design/build project that has run deep at New England Construction for several years now and we are very proud to see this one of a kind place open and serving the local community. I sat down with the Project Manager, Derek Venticinque, and the Superintendent, Dave Marchand, who worked on Pods to get their perspective on the project’s unique nature, the challenges they encountered along the way and their thoughts now that the project is over.

Making the decision to expand your business is one that obviously requires a lot of forethought. You set goals with your managers, speak with your shareholders, and even discuss the pro’s and con’s with your family. Growing pains for a small business involve a fair amount of risk and must be thoroughly examined. When you do determine that it is time to grow, you cannot just rush into making changes, especially ones that involve the literal physical space you occupy.

Spring Fever is settling in here in New England as the days get longer, the sun shines brighter and the frost has faded away. This is a great time of the year to plan a road trip. Of course when you sit down to do this you start asking yourself some questions, like:

  • Why do I even want to do this?
  • Where do I want to go?
  • How will I get there?
  • What’s going to make this trip special?
  • Can I even afford to travel??

Many images come to mind when you think about an automobile showroom in general. Most involve a clear, crisp look that showcases the vehicles for sale. You might also think about a comfortable, modern feel that invites a buyer to explore their choices. Now think about that showroom again, but this time imagine it is for one the most highly respected and customizable brands available, Ferrari. Does the image in your mind change? What new factors might come in to play now? These are the questions our team at New England Construction had to consider when we found we were partnering with Boch Enterprises to update their Ferrari and Maserati showrooms in Norwood, MA.

To say that New England Construction is a family company is certainly an understatement. Our founders and owners want each employee to feel that they are a real part of the Sluter Family. And while this feeling is alive year round, it certainly manifests itself in several concrete ways during the winter holiday season.
