Marion, MA – South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor, recently began a renovation project at Bay Cove, a housing complex located at 374 Dorchester St. in South Boston. The complex is owned and operated by Bay Cove Human Services.
The project features the complete renovation of the kitchen and bathrooms in the eight units at 374 Dorchester Street. The bedrooms in each unit will receive new dry wall, new ceiling plaster, new light fixtures, and other amenities.
The common areas of the building, which includes a reception area, kitchen, and bath, will also be completely renovated. In addition, the brick exterior of the building will be washed and a new roof and gutters will be installed.
South Coast anticipates all work to be completely finished by late spring/early summer. The total renovation project will cost approximately $1.3 million.
South Coast Improvement also began a renovation project for La-Z-Boy Furniture at 110 Faunce Corner Road in North Darmouth. The two-stage project involves conversion of the store from its current colonial look to the more modern, contemporary décor at newer La-Z-Boy locations.
Stage 1 of the renovation began on the left side of the store. A temporary wall was constructed to separate the work zone from the other side of the building, where La-Z-Boy has remained opened. The second stage will be finished in May. The entire cost of the renovation is approximately $275,000.
The scope of the renovations features new walls, floors, carpeting, lighting, ceiling work, and new paint. The previous colors were white to fit the colonial theme. The new more contemporary look features orange, greens, and browns.
