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
"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
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

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."
W. Humes, AIA Jacunski Humes Architects, LLC
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."

"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 Manager
"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
" 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
- Karl Winchester,
AIA, Banwell Architects
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."

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."

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
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
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
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."
Dale, Chair - Building Utilization & Renovation Committee, St.
"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

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

the past 15 years, Baybutt Construction has performed a variety
of projects for Kingsbury. 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

our tight schedules and budgets. Baybutt has assigned dedicated
project managers and superintendents who listen to our needs and
