Why select Baybutt Construction?

We've been serving clients for more than 42 years, and we're proud to say we have many happy and many repeat customers.

Here is what our clients and colleagues say about us:

"I must tell you it was a pleasure to work with your staff from the inception of the United States Postal Facility on Nantucket, Mass. Ron MacLachlan was a Gentleman and made the bidding process quite simple and concise. Joe Moyer did a fabulous job as senior project manager and worked well with the various layers of management at the USPS, as well as interacting well with the many town agencies which were involved in the project...I would absolutely use your firm again for any future project I have..."

-Alfred J. De Marco, President of LMD Investment, LLC

"I want to express our appreciation for the quality of the work, for the performance of the Baybutt staff on site, and for the planning and coordination involved in supervising the subcontractors. Renovation of an historic building usually involves discoveries requiring modification of plans. Both John Edwards and Mark Auger helped to identify these issues and efficiently and effectively facilitated communications with the project architects to find resolutions. They also helped us continue to provide essential municipal services throughout the entire renovation project."

-Richard Ewald, Community Development Director for the Town of Rockingham, VT

"We have found Baybutt to be not only technically competent and professional in the construction field but to excel at collaborating with their clients to assure delivery of a building that will serve the client for many years to come.

As construction progressed we were impressed by the careful oversight of every facet of development, the detailed coordination of many sub-contractors and the obvious and overriding commitment to quality.

From planning, to construction, to occupancy the service rendered by Baybutt clearly exceeded contractual obligations.
- Arthur Walker, Police Chief for the City of Keene

"I found the Baybutt team to be forthcoming with solutions to problems that were accomodating to the owner. Change orders have been kept to a minimum. They have been adept at keeping the subcontractors focused and operating efficiently. I look forward for the opportunity to work with Baybutt again on future projects.
- Michael J. Trojano, Business Adminsitrator for the Milford School District

"I want to express to you and your team there our appreciation for the job that you did, and the way in which you did it. Certainly, it is not especially unusual in construction contracts to have unexpected occurrences and time pressures. The important factor is to be working with folks who can and will deal with the circumstances as they arise, with the determination to get the job done, rather than to accumulate excuses for not getting it done. I have been pleased by the manner in which Baybutt responded. And so, thanks to you and to all of your troops."

- Robert H. Baldwin, President of Qroe Companies, Inc.

"I assumed the role of owner representative for the Career Center work and had daily interaction with the Baybutt employees for three years. We had 88,000 square feet of building to renovate, twelve career and technical programs to keep operating and the responsibility for the safety of 800 students attending the programs. The Baybutt people were very understanding of these needs and showed they could be creative and flexible. Our project spanned parts of three school years and two summers. Amazingly, everything was "put back together" and school opened on time each September. We had a positive experience choosing the Baybutt Construction Management team to run our project. Budget parameters were maintained, communication was timely and professional, quality standards met and we are very pleased with the finished project."
- Wayne E. Cotton, Director of Career and Technical Education at the Cheshire Career Center

"The Baybutt Company became an integral part of the community on this project. I felt that we had a very efficient team with execellant communication and a common goal. Baybutt, subcontractors, the school board and myself as clerk of works were partners in this important project to provide an improved facility for the children of the Winchester School District."
- Robert F. Parent, Jr., Clerk of Works for the Winchester School Board

"We truly appreciate your willingness to continue to deal with our small but important issues. Thank you again for your prompt assistance and for your generosity in dealing with our building issues at the Historical Society"

-Alan F. Rumrill, Executive Director for the Historical Society of Cheshire County

"Throughout this project, Baybutt Construction Corporation has conveyed the professionalism and competence to manage the construction process to the satisfaction of both the Architect and the Owner. Of particular note should be the quality performance of your Project Manager, and your Project Superintendent. These individuals expressed a "can-do" attitude that was a benefit to the final product. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future."

-Brian W. Humes, AIA Jacunski Humes Architects, LLC

"I have been working with Baybutt for the past 4 years on a multi-phased project in Keene, NH. The project is converting an approximately 140,000 sf former grocery warehouse into municipal facilities for the City of Keene.Baybutt has been involved since the project's inception, providing estimating and value engineering as the project has progressed through its overall design. Throughout this process, the team from Baybutt has been very professional and we have all developed a mutual respect as team members as a result. Our mutual goal is for a great project and a satisfied client. It has been a pleasure to work with the Baybutt stafrf, both during design phases and in the construction phase. I have commented to many that, in my 28 years in architecture, Baybutt's field personnel ranks among the best with whom I have worked. As a result of this relationship, we have pursued other work as a team, which is a testament to the quality of their work."
-Raymond Giolitto, AIA Bianco/Giolitto/Weston Architects LLC

"Please accept the sincere appreciation of myself and the Winchester School Board for a job well done. The school is beautiful, and we are all aware of the lengths you went to make it all happen on time."

-Margaret Sullivan, Assistant Superintendent Hinsdale/Winchester School Districts

"The result of your finish work by your team has brought many compliments by our employees, facilities staff and our architect as well. I would like to add that we all appreciate their attitude and flexibility throughout both phases of this project. I look forward to working with your team on future projects."
- Dick Gatley, MARKEM Facilities Manage

"When it was finally decided that we would go ahead with a scaled-back version of the project, I worked very closely with Baybutt's project manager, trying to maintain the integrity of the project while staying within the limited budget. Amazingly, due to Baybutt's experience and knowledge of the situation, Baybutt was able to meet this challenge. Throughout the project, I was impressed by Baybutt's attention to details...and the skillful coordination of subcontractors, getting them to work together as a team, to complete this portion of the project on schedule for the opening of school. I highly recommend Baybutt Corporation to any school considering a building project. Their commitment to detail, creating a schedule and sticking to it, keeping within budget, and working aroiund classes while school was in-session with the least possible disruption are just a few examples of this corporation's high standards."

- Harold Bigelow, Vice-Chair, Winchester School Board

"The Thayer Renovation/Expansion has been a great challenge! Baybutt Construction has been committed to the Thayer project at all times during the years that the project was held up by a lawsuit and continued their commitment as the plans changed and were scaled back. The CM team worked very hard with school district representatives and Banwell Architects to successfully maintain an extremely tight budget for this project. Since the beginning of the process, Baybutt has been actively involved in providing the school board and the community with information about what would be built, renovated and completed with the approved bond. The Baybutt project manager gave informative tours to keep school board members abreast of the project's progress. Baybutt was able to work on an extremely tight schedule, and we were able to open school as scheduled in September. Baybutt has been highly professional and has worked together as a partner with the WSB and the Clerk on the Thayer project. I am extremely thankful that Baybutt Construction was in it for the long run. In my opinion, they went above and beyond for the Winchester community and for this project!"
- Colleen Duquette, Chair, Winchester School Board

" It has been a pleasure to work with Baybutt Construction on the Thayer School Addition and Renovation project. While my involvement with the project doesn't extend as far back as Baybutt's, it did pick up at the construction document phase of a much larger-scope project in 2001. When the dust finally settled on the budget for the job, in early 2003, Baybutt's project manager was instrumental in fine-tuning the scope to align with the budget, which helped focus the efforts of our A&E design team. Construction documents took longer than anticipated, compressing and complicating the construction schedule, but the project manager maintained a "Can Do" attitude and made necessary adjustments to keep the project on track. Baybutt has done an excellent job of coordinating this project and creating a team atmosphere among the Owner/User and Subcontractor groups. The project has been held to a very tight schedule and the budget has been maintained throughout, with minimal contingency funding. The fact that school opened on the scheduled day, very quietly, is testimony to this fine construction effort."
- Karl Winchester, AIA, Banwell Architects

"I wanted to take this opportunity to commend you on the fine team you have assembled for the Acton Public Safety Facility project...I have been impressed with the very gentlemanly behavior of all the Baybutt employees I have had contact with. Without exception, your employees have acted in a professional manner at all times. I would observe that to a certain degree this positive attitude comes from the top. I have been impressed with how you have handled site meetings with subcontractors. I have a very good feeling about successful resolutions, based on a mutually respectful and cooperative approach to our joint issues."
-Dean Charter, MCPPO, Municipal Properties Director for Town of Acton, MA

"Because of Baybutt's past performance and attention to detail, they are presently being asked to quote future work within the Rivendell Interstate School District. I am happy to recommend their services to those looking for an exellent performer."
- Noelle Vitt, Head of School, Rivendell Interstate School District

"As Montessori School's construction manager, Baybutt worked as an exceptional team player to construct our 11,000 sf addition and 5,000 sf of renovations safely in an active school community, within budget, and within very tight construction schedule to open for the school year. All these objectives were met. Baybutt provided an exceptional and experienced Project Superintendent. This is the second school construction project on which I have worked with him and the Baybutt Team, and I would recommend them as leaders in school construction."
- Richmond S. Abbe, Executive Director, Andover School of Montessori

"The safety of students is always foremost with the Baybutt team. Whenever a situation arises, Baybutt is right on it without hesitation. The Baybutt company has kept the school board and the school administration well informed of the status of the project at every juncture. The Baybutt Construction company has kept a very clean, safe and secure site throughout the duration of the project. I have been in construction for forty years and have had the opportunity to work with many construction companies during this time. Most have been good companies, but I would rate Baybutt as an outstanding company to work with."
- Robert F. Parent, Jr., Keene School District, Director of Buildings and Grounds and Clerk of the Works, Keene NH

"It has been my pleasure to be associated with the Baybutt Company in the recent construction of my Dunkin Donuts store in Antrim, NH. Out of the five stores I have built this one was without question the best experience I have had with a construction company. They were organized, thorough, on time and extremely helpful. This company is a class organization and its' people are the same. They will be the only company I use in the future. They have spoiled me from using anyone else."
- David J. Quinn, Owner, Dunkin Donuts

"As we come to the final stages of our construction project, I can very clearly see that what we as a building committee designed, and what Baybutt's Design/Build team transformed into final design, meets every single objective that we had required....we may be the most handicapped accessible building in the city of Keene. To think that anyone can enter either floor of this 140 year-old building and go anywhere they wish to is an incredible accomplishment. We also met every requirement of the City of Keene and the Keene Fire Department, with Baybutt's Design/Build team working closely with officials in these code areas. I would like to say that as most projects, our wishes and our budget did not meet, but when I look at the final product I am hard-pressed to see what we cut out. Your recommendation to use the Design/Build concept has worked well for us at St.James."

-Ken Dale, Chair - Building Utilization & Renovation Committee, St. James Church

"Baybutt Construction was an outstanding construction manager for the renovation and addition of the Greenfield Middle School project. Baybutt acted in a professional manner throughout this difficult project and got the school opened on time. The firm worked professionally with the building committee, subcontractors, other project staff, local inspectors, utility company crews, suppliers, town departments, and the public. On behalf of the citizens and the building committee I recommend Baybutt Construction for their excellent work and for the excellent team approach they brought to our project."

- William B. Allen, Greenfield Selectman and Member of Greenfield Middle School Building Committee

- Charles R. Rogers, Chair, Grantham School Board

- Richard T. McCarthy, Asst. Supt. SAU 38

"Baybutt has been extremely helpful and accommodating, and has been way ahead of schedule. Their crew worked under the worst possible conditions, yet lost no time. We would not have been able to start school on time if they hadn't done things the way they did. We would hire them again."
- Mary Beth Moore, Director Southwest VT Career Development Center, Bennington, VT

"In the era of school-to-work relationships this work study exemplifies the positive effect of school-to-work by providing the opportunities in surveying, layout, and heavy equipment operation. Incorporating us as a subcontractor you have made this a truly realistic work experience. You have given us great support in team teaching the students."
- Frank Lamb, Forestry/Heavy Equipment Instructor, Southwest VT Career Development Center, Bennington, VT

The projects have ranged in scope and complexity from small office renovations to building a state-of-the-art class 10,000 clean room. On each and every project they have demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and a sense of urgency to meet our tight schedules and budgets.
