Renovation of Starbucks in Chicopee, MA

Another Starbucks renovation provided by JD Contractors, Inc. took place in Western Mass in City of Chicopee. A 5-day long renovation started on early Sunday evening.  Our demolition crew got to work as soon as Starbucks partners closed the store, and start demolition of all furniture, casework, equipment, and finishes.  All work was completed from Sunday night to Friday evening, making sure the café was closed as little as possible.

During the whole construction process, we were able to provide space for Starbucks partners to serve drive-thru customers. All the necessary equipment was placed into a small drive-thru space, well-enclosed from the construction area. Regular Starbucks customers still enjoyed their daily cup of coffee, while their favorite café was being remodeled. The store opened fully-renovated on Saturday morning, after only 5 days of café closure!

Remodel of Starbucks in Wakefield, RI

This summer was super busy for JD Contractors, Inc., as we worked on numerous projects, from minor jobs to commercial remodels and new constructions. One our projects this summer was a remodel of the Starbucks store in Wakefield, RI in June.

It took us only a few days to bring a new fresh look to this busy Starbucks location. Its customers now can enjoy comfortable furniture, beautiful design of all casework and a newly-painted café with modern artwork. Our team at JDC is happy to be the general contractor of choice for the Starbucks in Wakefield RI!

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, Inc. 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.
