W.T. Rich is committed to being the best construction manager in the Massachusetts public building sector. Every project's goal is to have the client “singing our praises” — throughout the project, at the end of the project, and for many years after the project has concluded. We go out of our way to understand our client’s needs and preferences and go the extra mile to ensure those needs are met without ever sacrificing honesty, transparency, or direct communication.
We believe everyone is responsible for safety. It is our number one priority on every project site to protect our workers, our clients and the surrounding communities in which we build. Through W.T. Rich’s proactive safety programs, initiatives, and technologies, we are consistently striving to empower each employee to feel that they are part of a cohesive team where everyone is responsible for creating and implementing our safety culture.
Our industry-leading Focus Five Quality Control Program focuses on preventing deficient work from being put in place. This program identifies and prevents quality issues before they have a negative impact on cost or schedule.
W.T. Rich utilizes multiple industry-leading software tools to manage a variety of our projects from preconstruction through final closeout. We are continually updating our portfolio of construction technologies to increase efficiency, quality, speed and reliability of our construction operations.

Lean has proven to improve workflow, reduce waste, enhance trade partner communication, improve schedule performance, increase reliability, and elevate accountability.
In-depth understanding of the physical and logistical constraints of a project is the foundation for successful project planning and delivery. W.T. Rich leaves no stone unturned in our pursuit of understanding the specific needs, circumstances and physical conditions of the project.
Highly-effective value management is a product of maintaining the Owner's requirements while providing avenues for potential cost savings. W.T. Rich uses its knowledge of the market to provide ideas, accurate pricing and cost tracking to optimize the dollars spent by the Owner.
Climate change is the defining issue of our time and buildings are responsible for almost 40 percent of both total energy use and carbon emissions in the United States. W.T. Rich recognizes the critical role we play as construction managers in helping the collective global community achieve carbon emissions reduction. W.T. Rich is a leader in the Commonwealth in sustainable construction. We are proud to be the only construction manager with three LEED Platinum certified public construction projects in Massachusetts.
