It is a privilege to offer a few comments on my professional relationship with Mr. Mark Regent, and his firm, Regent Associates, Inc. of Westborough, MA.
I serve as Suffolk Construction Company, Inc.’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. I have recently had the opportunity to renew my working relationship with Regent Associates that began over 15 years ago with a new school building project with Mark Regent. My most recent project with Regent Associates is the Herb Chambers Company’s new Lexus automobile dealership in Sharon, MA.
The Regent Associates’ design of the Lexus dealership struck a remarkable balance between visionary design, functional spaces, and cost effective detailing. Regent was extremely sensitive to the operational requirements of the facility and the expectation of a high level of finish that Chambers’ customers expect. The specification of materials was thorough, coordinated, and appropriate to the building program.
Regent’s office worked closely with our construction team and provided valuable insight and constructive suggestions during every step of construction. Mark Regent’s extensive experience with automotive facility design and construction was invaluable during the selection and award of subcontracts. Their collaboration with Suffolk and the client insured that the client achieved tremendous value within the budget established.
Regent was an active member of the construction team, interacting with subcontractors regularly throughout the project. Regent’s commitment to the project, hard work, and dedication resulted in the challenging project deadlines being met.
We would welcome the opportunity to partner with Regent Associates on a future project.
