Fran has grown the company from a solid carpentry business to a $120 million construction management and general contracting firm.  He attributes his success to doing high quality work, managing his growth with smart decisions, and treating his clients and employees the way he wants to be treated.  “Industry buzzwords and trends come and go,” Fran says.  “For the past 45 years, my buzzwords have been ‘honesty’, ‘trust’, and ‘integrity’.  They are the foundation of every one of our projects.  We built a family-like culture around them, a culture that inspires clients and subcontractors to want to work with us again and again.”

Fran has served as the chair of the board of directors for the AGC of Massachusetts and is passionate about promoting careers in the construction industry.  He spearheaded the production of the MCAP Guide to Construction Careers (download guide) for high school students, parents and educators and has been a dedicated contributor to developing and executing the AGC MA’s workforce development initiatives.
