Holyoke, MA – Commodore Builders and Walsh Brothers, Inc. announced the Commodore Walsh Holyoke Joint Venture has been selected to oversee planning for the new Holyoke Soldiers’ Home.
The project is intended to replace the current Holyoke Soldiers’ Home with a state-of-the-art, long-term care facility and campus framework for the Commonwealth’s veterans.
“As a veteran-owned firm, we are honored that the Commonwealth chose the Commodore Walsh team to build the new Holyoke Soldiers’ Home,” said Commodore president and CEO, Joe Albanese, a decorated military veteran and retired U.S. Navy Captain. “This project could not be more important to us, and our commitment is to ensure that we respect the legacy of our veterans by providing them with the facilities, services, and amenities that they deserve.”
The significant joint venture brings together the leadership of veteran-owned Commodore Builders and their track record of serving the state’s community of military service members, and the extensive industry experience of Walsh Brothers, who have constructed, renovated or restored nearly every type of healthcare facility in Massachusetts during their 120 years in business.
“This is a project with a huge purpose, as our veterans will have access to a state-of-the-art healthcare environment where they will receive treatment and care with honor and dignity,” said Albanese.
