South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, was recently contracted by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for a renovation project at the Ray and Maria Stata Center at the school’s campus in Cambridge, Mass.

The $170,000 project calls for the conversion of a library into office space on the 7th floor of the building. Additional office space on 8th floor will be renovated.

“Over the years, we’ve done a considerable amount of work at colleges and universities in the greater Boston area but this is our first at MIT,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company. “We’re delighted to bring our expertise to this world-renowned school and hope that it’s just the beginning of a mutually satisfying relationship.”

Work on the MIT project will be undertaken by South Coast Improvement’s private school division. This special division offers clients the benefits of a big time general contractor with the capability to streamline smaller projects under tight deadlines.

“As a company, we routinely work on six-figure projects, with our highest being a $4 million project for an assisted living facility. We have those systems in place so that we can work on several smaller jobs at a school at once,” said Quinlan. “That’s how we have been able to get a lot of repeat business.”

That repeat business includes projects at Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern University, Mount Ida College and Dean College. Those projects have ranged from a new video room for the Men’s Locker Room at BC’s Conte Forum to conference room and new President’s office at Mount Ida to a server room for the Kostas Homeland Security Research Facility at Northeastern.
