HP received an overflow of submissions for the biannual focus on educational facilities. Those that could not make it into this issue can be found on the HP blog at

A story (not in the educational sector) that deserves attention is One Dalton (page 38). Unmistakable on the Boston skyline, One Dalton Street recently reached its full height at 742 feet. Built by Suffolk Construction, it is now the tallest building in all of Boston and New England.

Construction Finance Management Association (CFMA) will mark World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), National Suicide Prevention Week (September 9-15), and National Suicide Prevention Month (September) by participating in the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s #BeThe1To save a life campaign. While safety is a top priority in ensuring success, mental health and suicide prevention have yet to become widely accepted as essential safety components in construction. Through five simple steps, the #BeThe1To message spreads the word about actions to take to prevent suicide. Visit

Coming up, HP’s annual focus on Interiors, in October, will report on design and construction activities from New England’s most active architects and contractors. It pairs well with November’s ABX edition, which will receive extra distribution at the largest annual design and construction industry event in the Northeast.

It’s also a money saving time to schedule advertisements in advance with our annual fall “3 for 2” deal and the 2019 “TF” monthly schedule discounts.


September is the start of the busy networking season for many associations that have been quiet for the summer. Networking is the best form of advertising and promotion for many companies. HP’s news network was created in part by attending the association meetings.

A few of the events HP will attend this fall include MBC’s Seaport Update/WS Development, and 20/30 club’s Networking Night at Bully Boy Distillers, AGC & ASM Joint Panel Discussion on the Value of Lean Construction. Two events at one of our favorite venues, Gillette Stadium, include the all-day annual ISPE Product Show, and National Grid’s 2018 Energy Solutions Summit. HP is a media sponsor for the SFNE Annual Dinner Meeting in October and ABX in November. These and more events can be found on our calendar page 58.
