BEVERLY, MA — Connolly Brothers, Inc., a construction management firm serving private commercial, industrial, and institutional clients, recently won a Silver Award from the New England chapter of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA-NE). At DBIA-NE’s annual awards gala, the Connolly team was honored for its design-build work on New England Academy’s (NEA) new South Shore campus in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

New England Academy is a private 7-12 school that believes students with social and emotional disabilities have the cognitive and academic ability to be successful if given skills to access their academic talents. New England Academy previously selected Connolly to design and build its flagship 40,000-square-foot North Shore campus in Beverly, Massachusetts, in 2014. The new Marshfield campus features contemporary classrooms, laboratories, artistic/creative spaces, administrative offices, a full gymnasium and athletic field, and a cafeteria. Using the design-build model, the project went from the conceptual stage to completion in just under one year.

“Were it not for our confidence in Connolly’s ability to get the job done right, we would not have been so bold in pursuing an expedited timeline,” NEA CFO/COO John Vogus said. “Many additional students’ needs can now be met in this new educational and therapeutic setting.”

NEA Founder and Executive Director Dr. Ryan Plosker said, “Connolly Brothers has been a great partner in helping New England Academy achieve its campus dreams and providing a space where our students can flourish.”

Connolly’s project team included JSN Associates (structural engineering), BLW Engineers (electrical and plumbing engineering), McDougall Bros. Enterprises (site work), Metro Walls (framing, drywall, and acoustic ceilings), Peak Fire Protection Inc., Shawnlee Construction (framing and carpentry), and Stenbeck & Taylor, Inc. (civil engineering).

“Thank you to New England Academy for once again entrusting us with your campus needs,” said Jay Connolly, President of Connolly Brothers. “We value this honor and appreciate DBIA’s work in promoting the highest professional standards ... in our field.”
