Callahan Construction Managers has resumed construction on Squirrelwood Apartments, a 12-building, 88-unit affordable housing development in Cambridge. Work has resumed after a temporary shutdown due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Owned by Just-A-Start Corp., Callahan and Davis Square Architects are renovating the 10 existing buildings and executing the design and construction of two new infill buildings, along with the construction of an addition to an existing building. The new construction is targeting Energy Star and Passive House standards. The project is slated to be completed by 2021.
“Squirrelwood was shut down for just over two months due to the COVID-19 construction moratorium in Cambridge. Now that the project has reopened, momentum is ramping back up with close attention to the safety requirements needed to keep all personnel safe,” said Jessica Anthony, project executive at Callahan. “The team is excited to be making progress again, and is taking an enthusiastic approach to working in the new normal.”
