DeIulis Brothers successfully negotiated this historic home project, which took nearly two years to complete and included such features as a geo-thermal HVAC system and an elevator. Radiant floor heating was also installed in several areas of the home and tied into the geo-thermal system. Every window in this Energy Star home was replaced with custom made, true divided light, putty profile, thermal pane windows and closed cell foam insulation was utilized throughout for maximum efficiency. The existing detached garage was demolished and in its place DeIulis Brothers constructed a new wing that included a large custom kitchen, upstairs media room and carriage house with garages. DeIulis Brothers utilized its own crews to carry out the delicate interior demolition work, taking great care to salvage original carvings by the famous Salem architect and wood carver, Samuel McIntire, and to install the custom interior finishes on this luxury home restoration that is registered for Silver level certification in the LEED For Homes Program (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), a program established by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote green building standards and environmentally sustainable construction practices.
Situated on a narrow side street off of Bridge Street (Route 1A), in a densely populated residential neighborhood, this project is notable for the following:
Following its successful reconstruction of the dining and function portion of the building, DeIulis Brothers continued work on the remainder of the building, providing necessary structural stability, installing new exterior siding and roofing, upgrading building systems, improving access and refurbishing the interior spaces.
DeIulis Brothers provided pre-construction budgeting and scheduling for this project, which led to a negotiated construction contract. Built adjacent to and adjoining North Shore Children’s Hospital, this project was notable for the following:
DeIulis Brothers was the successful bidder on this public building project for the Town of Watertown. The existing library fronted on a main route, was bordered on two sides by Town Hall and Police Headquarters, and in the rear by the municipal parking lot. A narrow driveway between the Library and Town Hall provided the only access to the parking lot and the site and had to be kept open at all times. The logistical challenges were numerous, including the unanticipated discovery of contaminated soils under the demolished building sections, and several unexpected conditions were encountered during construction that resulted in changes to the contract. DeIulis Brothers worked cooperatively with the Owner and Designer to deliver the project without significant impact on schedule or budget.
