The Department of Children and Families, New Bedford

The 40,000 square foot, $3,000,000.00 project was completed in just under five months. R. P. Valois employed the mechanical engineers and through a design build relationship with the client’s architect, completed the project to the great satisfaction of The State of Massachusetts. DCAMM Leasing considered it to be the best project with which they have ever been associated. The project includes all new offices, cubicles, restrooms, interview and conference rooms, new electrical services, data, security, HVAC, plumbing and fire suppression for the department. The space is now fully ADA accessible through two elevators, an exterior handicap ramp and automatic door openers at the entrance and restrooms. The space is controlled by a state of the art ‘Z wave’ energy management system, allowing all electrical, data, HVAC and security systems to work as efficiently as possible.
