Featured Project

Boston Public Library, McKim Building

The Boston Public Library McKim Building project consisted of renovation and historical restoration work at one of Boston’s preeminent historical landmarks. The work consisted of courtyard renovations as well as interior and exterior roof reconstruction. Work also included masonry repointing, masonry washing, window restoration, arcade ceiling reconstruction, and lantern retrofitting. Intensive attention to detail was invested to ensure that restored elements retained and replicated the look, feel and character of the original historical features of the building. W.T.

I have had a working relationship with W. T. Rich Company for more than 20 years. They tackle each and every project with an incredible sense of passion, commitment and teamwork. I have found them to be above reproach in their professionalism, workmanship, and the standards for which they set for themselves and their sub-trades. Even in the face of difficult challenges that sometimes arise in the course of a construction project, they are steadfast in their commitment to cooperation, pragmatism and fairness. Not once have they fallen short on their commitment of total satisfaction.
