“I had a very good experience working with BWA. They did a good job with the paperwork, there were very minor change orders and the project came in under budget and on schedule. They did a great job, the units are beautiful and our residents are very happy with them.”

Executive Director of Acton Housing Authority

-Kelley Cronin

“The President and Provost of the University could not say enough about the great work all of you did over the summer and how amazed they were that the team managed to complete this project on such a tight schedule. Both are now working at Mass Hall and enjoying the new amenities. It was definitely a challenging project but obviously highly successful based on the feedback from the new occupants of the building. [BWA was] a major factor in the success of this project and I just wanted to say….Thank you again!! It has been a pleasure working with you!”
