about us


Founded in 1990, Senate Construction quickly earned the reputation as one of the leading commercial construction companies in Central Massachusetts. Senate’s distinctive pre-construction consulting services became the hallmark of the company that, to this day, sets it apart from the competition.


We excel in all aspects of construction – from brand new, ground-up facilities to renovation and fit-out of spaces for a wide spectrum of markets including manufacturing, health care, and life sciences, mixed-use development, corporate/commercial, retail, education, and many more.
In short, Senate Construction builds your vision with integrity, quality, and value from concept to completion.


  • At Senate, we strive to make your business more profitable. By working with our clients to determine the most effective design of your work space and performing a work flow analysis, your operations will become more efficient, more productive and, ultimately, more profitable.

  • Providing support and guidance from the earliest stages of a project, Senate Construction is much more than just a Construction Manager. We will partner with you to determine site feasibility, perform extensive due diligence and value engineering, and obtain permits and secure town approvals to ensure your project will work as well in reality as it does on paper. This value-added approach ensures a smooth and fast transition from preconstruction to construction.

  • With Senate Construction, design and construction is significantly faster and costs are streamlined with time-consuming bidding and redesign minimized. Senate takes a collaborative, team-centered approach on every project – taking your vision from concept to reality utilizing the design/build approach. As the single source for both design and construction, Senate offers you the most efficient and cost-effective approach available.

  • Choosing the right site is vital to the success of any project – it’s the foundation upon which everything else depends. Senate works directly with the client and on their behalf to evaluate potential sites. Using our skilled staff to determine if there are any unforeseen risks and in overcoming barriers is part of Senate’s value proposition. These efforts have saved our clients significant preconstruction costs and allowed them to establish a solid timeline for construction.

  • Senate’s reputation for quality, professionalism, and integrity is unmatched in our industry. As a Butler Manufacturing certified Butler Builder, Senate is on the cutting edge of innovation, offering clients products that are smarter, safer, and better than the competition.

  • Over the course of 29 years in business, Senate has honed its expertise in all facets of design and construction. Our experienced personnel manage projects ranging from small renovations to large-scale new construction. Whatever your needs, Senate has the solution.
