Wakefield, MA – South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently expanded the capabilities of its life sciences division through a partnership with STEM Solutions, LLC (STEM).

STEM’s client list includes such noted institutions as Dana Farber, MIT, Harvard, Yale, Boston’s Children’s Hospital, Johnson & Wales University, Pfizer, AMGEN, Brown University and Concord Academy.
A recent example of South Coast Improvement’s work in this area includes a renovation at the Boston University College of Engineering’s Dunlop Laboratory at 44 Cummings Rd in Boston.
