AGC MA firms provide renovation, build, and maintenance services to celebrate Service Day


BOSTON–On Friday, November 3, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) of the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts (AGC MA) spent its annual CLC Service Day at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester.

Team members from MA-based construction firms and subcontractors made needed improvements to the Boys & Girls Clubs’ Marr Clubhouse (1135 Dorchester Avenue) and McLaughlin Center (35 Deer Street). Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester President and CEO Bob Scannell and MA State Representative and Dorchester native Dan Hunt welcomed volunteers.

“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester has long provided a much-needed safe space for area young people, for learning, creating, exploring, and building community. As a non-profit institution, its budget often leaves little room for facility maintenance,” says AGC MA CEO John Ferrante. “AGC MA’s Construction Leadership Council was honored to ensure that the Boys & Girls Clubs will continue their important work in the well-maintained surroundings they deserve.”

The scope of work on CLC Service Day included replacing floors and ceiling tiles, painting, installing new lighting and electrical systems, installing alarms, building a dumpster enclosure, replacing doors, providing HVAC filter servicing, refinishing a wood deck and stairs, elevator maintenance, installing new fans, and exterior cleanup.

Among the firms participating in this year’s CLC Service Day were Bond Building, Columbia, Commodore Builders, Dellbrook|JKS, Elaine Construction, Lee Kennedy Company, MLM, Sea-Dar, Skanska, TG Gallagher Mechanical Contractors, Turner Construction Co., and Walsh Brothers. Participating subcontractors include A Murphy Electric, APC Construction, Cheviot Corporation, Hennigar Door, and Lighthouse Electrical Contracting Inc.
