“I have now had the opportunity to complete two projects with the W.T. Rich team. Their response and effort to help the City of Cambridge open the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. project after a devastating roof fire in May of 2015 took extraordinary effort and full commitment of the firm’s management and site staff to allow the City to fully occupy the building in December of 2015. The City of Cambridge looks forward to the completion of our third project together, the King Open / Cambridge Street Upper School and Community project in the summer of 2019.”
