BOND Construction Participates in City Build Program

BOND recently visited with students at Brighton High School as part of the CityBuild education program sponsored by Urban Neighborhood Design Alliance. CityBuild is a curriculum enrichment program for Boston high school students that introduces students to the fields of design, development, and construction by providing a hands-on learning experience. The program offers students the opportunity to learn about the construction process from design through construction by engaging with professionals working on construction projects throughout  the City of Boston.

Members of the BOND Tata Hall project team alongside Harvard Business School representatives visited Brighton High School to give students a classroom overview of the firm's $80M Harvard Business School Tata Hall project.  Tata Hall will house HBS participants in the Business School's Executive Education Program. 

BOND's visit to Brighton High School provided the students with a series of hands-on learning experiences that tied their classroom learning experiences to construction in the field.  BOND's Superintendent on the Tata Hall project, Jim Keefe,  provided the students with a hands-on excavation support lesson; the students put clips of the demonstration on You Tube. "Participating in the CityBuild program is extremely rewarding for our staff at BOND," said Bob Murray, President of BOND.  "It is important that we all give back to the communities we live and work in and it is our hope that each of the Brighton High students were able to apply some of what they learned from our visit to their studies in the classroom."  

BOND was founded in 1907 and has been involved in some of the region's most high-profile construction projects in both the building construction and civil and utility sectors of the construction industry.  BOND's building division provides a full-range of construction and general contracting, from pre-construction services and construction management to lump-sum contracting, fast-track, and design build.
