Jewett Construction Wins Preservation Massachusetts Paul & Niki Tsongas Award

Jewett Construction will be awarded the 2019 Paul & Niki Tsongas Award by Preservation Massachusetts for their exceptional work on the NineZero Washington Project in Salem, Massachusetts. Since 1988, the Paul & Niki Tsongas Award has recognized the very best in historic preservation efforts, individuals and achievements across the Commonwealth. It is the highest honor that Preservation Massachusetts awards people, projects and places, and demonstrate the highest level of commitment to historic preservation in the Commonwealth. Jewett was the Construction Manager and General Contractor for the NineZero Washington project. Over 500 leaders throughout the New England A/E/C community will gather in Boston, Massachusetts for the Awards Ceremony on May 8th.

The project was constructed for New England Developer, Nine Zero Washington, LLC which is comprised of three partners with many years of commercial and residential property development experience; George Vernet, Kenneth Carpi and Thomas Carpi. This historic building in the heart of downtown Salem, MA was restored and renovated in early 2018. The project was designed by Winter Street Architects with a specific emphasis on preserving and restoring the historical features and character of the property. Jewett Construction performed the 24,000 S.F. restoration and two-story addition to the property. The 90 Washington Street building includes three stories of office space serving as the City of Salem’s administrative offices and public meeting rooms. The addition constructed at the rear of the building has been modernized with a two-story, louvered curtainwall system that was set proud of the surrounding structure to create visual relief from the surrounding metal cladding.

Craig Jewett, President of Jewett Construction is thrilled that this project has earned recognition from Preservation Massachusetts. “Winning this award is something that the entire project team and Jewett Family is incredibly proud of. Our goal is to always build high-performing, quality buildings for our clients and with historic buildings like this one, that goal is amplified,” Jewett explained. “We are very proud of our project team, design team, subcontractors, vendors, and consultants. This was truly a team effort that resulted in NineZero Washington earning this wonderful award.”
