What We Do
Designed To Build Projects That Exceed Client's Expectations
At BW Kennedy & Co., we offer a full range of services from preconstruction planning through construction and post occupancy services. How we deliver those services will vary based on each client’s unique needs. In some cases, we help clients to determine the feasibility of their project from an early concept stage, with very little information available. In other cases, when clients already know exactly what they want, we help to create a path to delivery that makes the most of their budget. We tailor our services to meet your needs.
In addition to the traditional Design-Bid-Build methodology, BW Kennedy & Co. provides Design-Build services. Given the complex nature of most of our work, this project delivery system allows us to accelerate the project schedule and achieve cost savings. We have numerous well-cultivated relationships with leading Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Process, and Fire Protection companies as well as code consultants to ensure we effectively meet our clients’ design needs within their specialty or market segment. If you are not familiar with the Design-Build methodology, we would love to tell you more about it.
Whatever stage your project is in, BW Kennedy & Co. can guide you to plan for success.

What People Are Saying
Team BW Kennedy,
I wanted to take this time to thank you for all your hard work on this challenging project. Completing a construction project in an active research lab has many obstacles. Darian and John came up with a phasing plan that allowed research to continue uninterrupted while construction was ongoing and I received nothing but compliments from the research and development staff on how professional your team was. It as a pleasure working with BW Kennedy and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Project Manager, Arcadis on behalf of GSK WREF Services
We have had the pleasure of partnering with BW Kennedy on multiple projects over the last decade. Projects ranging from small tenant improvements to a multi-building Biotech campus in Devens. Their approach to every project extends beyond just collaboration – it’s pure teamwork from start to finish. Their contributions and leadership early on in design are key components to the success of every project. They bring unparalleled experience, technical knowledge, and real-life practical solutions to every challenge and continue that teamwork mentality through to the finish line and beyond.

BW Kennedy & Co. is a proven construction partner for King Street Properties: They understand
Life Sciences construction. Their proactive attention to quality, schedule, budget, and detail,
from pre-construction through construction, is superb.
I am continually impressed with the cooperation and professionalism put forth by Brian Kennedy and his project teams, and I look forward to successfully completing more projects with them.
Principal & Founder, King Street Properties
The BW Kennedy & Co. management and crew are excellent to work with. They ensured that our project was completed on time by managing a tight schedule and thoroughly communicating decision deadlines. The construction process was new to us, but the entire BW Kennedy team and subcontractors were professional and respectful at all times. The finished labs and office space exceeded our expectations and we look forward to working with BW Kennedy on any future projects as we grow.
Former Manager, Internal Operations, UNUM Therapeutics
When planning our office build-out we assumed all deadlines would be pushed out (isn’t that how all construction works?), but the BW Kennedy team proved our assumptions wrong – delivering an office and lab space even better than we had imagined, even faster than we could have dreamt.
We had an incredibly short timeline of only five months to build and move into a completely new office and lab. Throughout those months, everything stayed on or ahead of schedule. Both the Superintendent and the Project Manager were a pleasure to work with – extremely organized and always kept open, honest and consistent communication. We have yet to have a visitor to our space that hasn’t complimented its look and functionality (and, in fact, we have regular requests from colleagues in our industry asking to come see it as an exemplar of a great space!) I couldn't imagine doing another construction project with anyone but BW Kennedy & Co.

In selecting a Builder, I want someone who is trustworthy, straight-forward, and honors their commitments. BW Kennedy & Co. has done just that at Phillips Academy, always with a focus on quality and customer service. They understand how to work safely on an occupied campus, showing respect for faculty, staff, and students alike.
Without reservation, I would recommend Brian Kennedy and his team at BW Kennedy Co. for your next building project.
Associate Director, Facilities and Capital Projects, Phillips Academy
We heard many stories about the difficulty in completing fast-track summer renovation projects on time, but the team at BW Kennedy & Co. made this experience as painless as possible. We never worried that the project wouldn’t turn out well. Their Superintendent let us know if something wasn't right and would work with us until it was how we wanted it.
They also worked with us to create an effective and safe construction environment, even as summer campers accessed Middlesex School on a daily basis. Their focus on customer service instilled confidence in us from the very beginning, and the project was turned over to us ahead of schedule.
