Case Study

Harvard Dental Center

The Harvard Dental Center, a dental clinic attached to the Harvard School of Dental Medicine that provides service to the surrounding community, turned to Construction Coordinators, Inc. (CCI) to build a new lobby for them that emphasized the cutting edge nature of their treatment.

CCI strove to create a friendly atmosphere by removing dividing walls, installing bright lighting, and employing light colors. However, one of the most important dividing walls they wanted to remove was crisscrossed by wires for lighting, HVAC, and the fire alarm system. In order to move forward, CCI needed to rewire each of those systems through different walls—a difficult and time-consuming process. Because the building also held classrooms which were in session during construction, during the rewiring CCI had to avoid cutting out the power, which made the task all that more challenging. Furthermore, the clinic was closed during the project, leaving many without dental care, so CCI needed to move quickly.

Despite the constraints, CCI finished the project successfully, building a modern and beautiful lobby in which the Harvard dental students and professors could continue their good work serving the people of the Boston area.
