Teamwork is greater Lowell's
community action agency.
Keefe Company identified a vacant 67,000 square foot office
building constructed in 1985, and managed its acquisition
and conversion into a Comprehensive
Child Development Center with 28 classrooms, cafeteria
facilities, and play area. The facility is used to provide
Head Start and Early Head Start services to families from
throughout the greater Lowell region.
Our role in the project included the
- negotiating a favorable purchase and
- supervising the design by Harris
- developing pro forma financial statements
and raising $3.4 million in financing from Shawmut and
- obtaining public approvals
- managing construction by CWC Builders
facility opened in 1995, under budget and ahead of schedule.
to Bill Lipchitz, president of the Lowell
Center City Committee, "Frank Keefe was the driving
force behind the completion of Community Teamwork's 28 classroom
state-of-the-art Head Start facility on Phoenix Avenue."
