Cutler Associates Recognized for “Excellence in Construction”

Over 200 ABC members gathered at the Boston Marriott Burlington Hotel to recognize and celebrate the very best construction projects its companies have to offer. This year's applicant pool was particularly competitive, with each award winner selected for the high standards of craftsmanship, safety and quality delivered by talented merit shop workers using the efficient merit shop approach. "Our companies are committed to providing the highest quality work in a safe and efficient manner,” said ABC MA President Greg Beeman. “Tonight was a great night to recognize their achievements and celebrate the merit shop construction industry as a whole"

The Eagle Award recognizes the overall excellence in project execution, craftsmanship, safety, innovative elements and challenges, and client satisfaction. Cutler Associates took home the Eagle Award, representing the pinnacle of achievement, for its work on Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary in Weston, MA. Cutler was the design-builder for a new 10,000 square foot, two-story learning center. They did not self-perform the labor, but rather subcontracted the work through an open bidding process. They used design-build MEP subcontractors to help control cost. The building was modeled so that it could be constructed virtually, prior to the actual field work, saving on both schedule and cost. The steel-framed building was constructed over the course of 7 months, and delivered to them just ahead of the Christmas holy season, as promised.

The Massachusetts Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors is the largest construction trade association in the Commonwealth, representing some 430 local general contractor, subcontractor, and supplier and associate companies that employ more than 20,000 workers throughout Massachusetts.
