“This project was complex, spanned multiple levels, and required oversight from the State Historic Preservation Office. The property is listed as a contributing resource to the historic West End district on the National Register of Historic Places. This renovation required intense focus and great care on complicated project over 100 years old. Diversity had to adjust to a host of hidden challenges, including structural and ceiling issues, material deterioration, and an unanticipated encounter with a toilet room concealed within an existing wall. DCG was able to navigate through all of it successfully.
“I was heavily involved in this project, and was impressed with Diversity’s team-oriented approach, keeping the lines of communication open and working with me and my team of professionals as a well-intentioned partner as we got to the finish line.
“I would recommend that you consider Diversity Construction Group for your next construction project; they will exceed your expectations and help your project become a success.”

“I have worked with Diversity Construction Group on the first phase of a renovation project for Community Mental Health Affiliates, Inc (CMHA)’s Team Time Social Rehabilitation Club. During the course of the project, Diversity’s employees displayed a high level of professionalism, experience and commitment to quality. They attended weekly production meetings with the owner and architect, keeping all informed on the project timeline.
The space that was renovated came out beautifully and the club members are very pleased with the outcome. The space now has accessible bathrooms that can accommodate our members with special needs. There is also a large functional space that will allow the club members to participate in events that will assist in their recovery.
I highly recommend Diversity Construction Group as a General Contractor. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to further discuss my experience working with Diversity Construction Group.”

The Town feels that James Keaney provided solid project management, and that Mike Daigle was diligent in his on-site supervision of the project.
