Under Massachusetts law, “construction of all one and two family dwellings and all buildings containing less than 35,000 cubic feet of enclosed space must be constructed under the supervision of a person licensed by the State Board of Building Regulations and Standards as a Construction Supervisor.” Fortunately, WORKS is fully licensed as a Construction Supervisor. We have taken the required exams and shown at least three years of experience to earn those licenses, and we must take continuing education courses to maintain them.

Because we know what makes construction efficient, safe, structurally sound and cost-effective, we begin every demolition with those end-goals in mind.

  1. We keep the lines of communication open. Before we even start, we discuss with you whether there is anything you want to salvage or recycle from the demolition; how we will dispose of construction debris; who will handle permitting and inspections (for lead paint, asbestos, and other concerns); and how we will fit into your schedule with the least disruption of your life—and your neighbors. Communication continues throughout the demolition project.

  2. We investigate thoroughly beforehand to make sure we aren’t tearing down a necessary support or otherwise weakening the home’s structure. We look for plumbing and electrical lines that may be jeopardized by the demolition. We keep an eye out for problems that are suddenly revealed by the demolition, such as wood rot.

WORKS builds a new extension to the home.

  1. Protecting you, the homeowner, is our top priority. We stress safety while we work, and we clean up the site daily to help prevent accidents to humans or pets. In addition, we control dust and debris, which can have long-term effects on families, by sealing off the work area as much as possible.

  2. We use the proper equipment to protect our own ears, eyes, lungs, and hands, and we select the right tools to complete each stage of the project the right and efficient way. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has tracked about 93,000 saw-related injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms during one year. Experienced professionals know how to avoid injury.

Once the demolition is complete, WORKS is fully prepared as your general contractor to rebuild. We make sure the new structure is compatible with your home’s style, functional for your family, and structurally sound. Contact us today to discuss your project.
