South Coast Improvement, Co. Begins Renovation at Bay Cove, South Boston

June 30, 2016

South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently began a renovation project at Bay Cove, a housing complex located at 374 Dorchester Street in South Boston. The complex is owned and operated by Bay Cove Human Services, a leading human service agency in Boston serving individuals facing the challenges of developmental disabilities, mental illness, drug and alcohol addiction and aging

The project, which began earlier this month, features the complete renovation of the kitchen and bathrooms in the eight units at 374 Dorchester Street. The bedrooms in each of those units will receive new dry wall, new ceiling plaster, new light fixtures and other amenities.

The common areas of the building, which includes a reception area, kitchen and bath, will also be completely renovated. In addition, the brick exterior of the building will be washed and a new roof and gutters will be installed.

South Coast Improvement Company began these renovations in March and anticipates all work to be completely finished by late spring/early summer. The total renovation project will cost approximately $1.3 million.

“This is a delicate kind of renovation as the majority of work is being done in people’s homes. So, we have to be sensitive to the interruption to people’s routines and communicate very clearly and often the status of work and any changes,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company. “Fortunately, through our work at assisted living and other residences, we can take on a renovation project like this and minimize the impact on residents.”
