Salvation Army


Project Description

Project: Thrift Store Renovations & Energy Efficiency Upgrades
Location: Saugus, MA
Year Completed: 2013
Project Manager: David D’Angelo

Long time repeat client The Salvation Army, came to Nadeau Corporation in need of a  6 phase renovation for their 31 year old building in Saugus, MA.  The work included new tile floors, ceilings, 4 new dressing rooms, check-out kiosks, a bright new paint job, ceiling fans, sprinklers, and new energy efficient lighting. While construction was in progress, customers continued flooding the store. Nadeau broke it into 6 sections to accommodate and minimize disruptions.  The team was able to fast track the project and complete 1.5 months ahead of schedule so that the store could enjoy the busy November to Christmas shopping season without a construction team’s presence looming around. 15% electrical savings were achieved through the new efficient lighting consisting of 70 new lights.
