Contractor: AP Whitaker & Sons.

Fairfield Inn and Suites

Redesign and renovation of 1st floor public spaces as well as all 73 guest rooms.

The project consisted of expanding and redesigning the breakfast area and reception deck as well as renovating the guest rooms to meet current signature Marriott standards.

Advanced Technology Innovation Corporation

The existing 15,000 SF mixed used (office/manufacturing) building was renovated into new office space.

The large, windowless manufacturing area was transformed into new, light filled office space. The existing exterior envelope was modified to accommodate large windows in the office area as well as a large glazed entry for the employees. A new employee kitchen was added along with an employee exercise area and accessible bathrooms and showers.

Cobbs Corner Retail Plaza

This project consisted of a complete exterior façade renovation of the existing retail plaza. The original, outdated plaza was improved with new canopy roofs and stucco exterior.

All tenants, including Rite Aid and Dunkin Donuts, remained open throughout this active construction project.

Trucchi’s Supermarkets

A complete renovation consisted of transforming existing office and mechanical space into new corporate office space.

A new mezzanine was also constructed over an active warehouse. The renovated space and new mezzanine contain new executive offices, new corporate conference room and new lunch room space. The existing exterior masonry wall was opened up in order to bring natural light and ventilation into the renovated space.


The owner of the existing restaurant desired a new image for this non-descript building, an image which would compliment the contemporary cuisine served within. This project posed numerous challenges from restrictive zoning boundary to numerous existing structural issues.

The design concept was to create a new street front image for the exterior while renovating and expanding the existing bar and lounge area of the interior. A new addition was constructed on the front of the building which contains a new lounge and redesigned bar area. A new entry and covered walkway was designed to greet customers as they approach the building. The result is a dramatic transformation from the restaurants humble beginnings.

Waitt Funeral Home

The new 1780 square foot addition houses a new chapel for funeral and memorials services, a new handicap accessible entry, new sitting area as well as a new garage.

The chapel offers a flexible floor plan which allows for intimacy with smaller funerals and can accommodate larger services. The chapel has a cathedral ceiling framed by painted cross beams as well as stained glass windows which set a special tone – giving strength, purpose and meaning to each ceremony. The simple beauty, dignity in theme and simplicity of décor creates a peaceful environment for families and guests.
