Natick Remodel

Starbucks location at Sherwood Plaza in Natick, MA was scheduled for complete remodel at the end of October 2015 and JD Contractors was chosen as general contractor for this project to take care of all preparations and work involved.

During 5 days of this renovation we had to prepare, start and finish all inside works, including demolition, new flooring, plumbing, and electrical. We have installed new furniture and artwork and cleaned the entire area so that it was ready to re-open.

Starbucks Sherwood Plaza was opened for business again after only 5 days of construction works and looks now better than ever!

Residential Bathroom Remodeling Project in Belmont MA

At JD Contractors, LLC, no job is too small or too big for us. Last year, besides overseeing larger commercial projects, we were also working on multiple residential renovations, including bathroom renovation in a single family house in Belmont, MA.

We started with a complete face lift of a typical pink bathroom from the ‘60s. Even though it was well-kept it was not up to today’s needs of the owners.

Our team took care of all the electrical and plumbing, we installed a new heated towel rack, floor and wall tiles, as well as all bathroom fixtures, including a new bath tub, sink cabinet with a granite countertop and a toilet. After the finishing touches, a new coat of paint and a wall mirror, the bathroom now looks nothing like before.

Remodel of Boston Starbucks (755 Boylston St.)

After a busy summer, we have another Starbucks store to add to our completed projects list – the Starbucks located at 755 Boylston Street in downtown Boston. This very busy store located in the heart of Boston went through a remodel while remaining open to customers. Our crews and subcontractors had to make sure the remodeling process wouldn’t interfere with customers enjoying their daily cup of coffee. Luckily, JD Contractors, LLC can handle such situations without any problems – all construction related work was completed during evenings and the store was cleaned each morning for yet another day of busy Boston life.

Starbucks Renovations & Remodeling Updates May/June 2015

Have you noticed many Starbucks stores are getting prettier this time of year? Our team at JD Contractors, LLC was involved as general contractor in refreshes at multiple Starbucks locations around Greater Boston area. From mid-May through the end of June, our project managers, crews, and subcontractors worked hard to bring a new look to 6 stores and also performed a complete remodel of another 2 locations (more about these in later posts).

The updates included Starbucks stores in Marblehead, Methuen, as well as several in the Greater Boston Area – Tremont Street, School Street, Washington Square, and 62 Boylston Street.

All of these stores received new coats of paint and artwork, cafe furniture and light fixtures were upgraded, floor tiles were repaired. We also brought new casework parts and worked through all small repairs that piled up over the time.

Our crews and subcontractors completed all desired work after regular store hours, ensuring the operation of each Starbucks would not be disrupted more than necessary. For us, that meant working really hard after store partners left each night and having the store clean and ready for opening in the morning.

In total, it took us 3 to 5 nights to give the store a new look and move on to the next one. Together, with arranging all deliveries beforehand, and completing the paperwork afterwards, we can honestly say that this summer has been busier than ever.

Concord MA Remodel Project

Our most recent project took place in the small town of Concord, MA where we were remodeling the Starbucks located on Sudbury Street.

Challenges

We all know that unexpected problems can arise out of nowhere. Our client was lucky that JD Contractors, LLC was involved in this project as the remodeling process was seriously interrupted by challenges and problems with deliveries caused by third parties.

Our project manager and site supervisor had to deal with several last-minute schedule changes and use our resourcefulness and extensive team of subcontractors in order to maintain scheduled opening day. Years of experience have prepared us to handle emergencies and unexpected situations. During this particular project, we were able to overcome initial challenges and finished the remodel on schedule, producing top-quality results.

Scope of Work

The project began with a complete demolition of the entire store, including all casework, furniture, equipment, merchandise bases, artwork, wallpapers, floor tiles, light fixtures and finishes. Once the demolition was completed, we immediately started rough framing, plumbing and electrical work.

Opening

This Starbucks re-opened on Saturday, March 14, after being closed for only 5 days. Our experienced project manager, site supervisor, crews and subcontractors were all able to handle unforeseen events and managed to deliver work in the highest quality and within the pre-set time schedule.

We are happy that we could help the Concord Starbucks community to make their coffee place shinier and more welcoming for their visits.

Remodel of Coolidge Corner Starbucks in Brookline, MA

Our next big project of 2015 took place in early February. This project involved a remodel of the Starbucks located on Harvard Street in the Coolidge Corner area of Brookline, MA. For people in this neighborhood, this Starbucks is the place for a morning coffee, meeting friends, or resting after an exhausting day at work. JD Contractors, LLC was trusted to transform this location into a stylish and modern place where customers could enjoy their daily cup of coffee in comfort.

JDC’s remodeling team first prepared a detailed schedule of the remodel. One of the initial challenges was the store’s location. The Starbucks is located on a busy street in Brookline, which made parking and material deliveries a challenge. With only a small parking space in the back of the store, and a busy, snow-covered street, everything had to follow the pre-established schedule.

JDC’s remodeling team and subcontractors spent 5 days and 2 additional nights to accomplish the remodel. This project started Sunday night with the demolition of all existing furniture and equipment.

The scope of work included new plumbing fixtures, electrical wiring, framing new walls, tiling, and painting. The last part of the remodel involved installing new casework. All work that was taken care of by JD Contracting and our trusted subcontractors was performed professionally and of the highest quality. This and the fact that we scheduled and finished the remodel during night hours ensured that this busy Starbucks location could reopen after only 5 days of being closed. Additionally, all work was completed within the designated timeframe and on budget.

As of Saturday, February 7, Coolidge Corner customers can now enjoy their morning coffee in a completely renovated store. The location now offers more seating space, surrounded by attractive artwork, and provides the staff with an overall better work environment.
