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 following:

  • negotiating a favorable purchase and sale agreement
  • supervising the design by Harris Design
  • developing pro forma financial statements and raising $3.4 million in financing from Shawmut and other lenders
  • obtaining public approvals
  • managing construction by CWC Builders
