( — March 30, 2015) Marion, MA — South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently formed a retail division to better serve existing clients and prospects in the retail and restaurant industries. 

“Over the years, we have demonstrated our expertise on renovation and new construction projects in healthcare, assisted living, education, and hospitality industries–and to a certain degree in the retail industry,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement, Inc. “With the recent addition of key personnel, we believe we can deliver the same level of outstanding work and service to the retail industry.” 

Newly hired Senior Project Manager David Godfrey will head the retail division. Godfrey began his career working for a major retailer as a construction manager before forming his own tenant improvement and renovation construction company in 1994.  That company specialized in the buildout of retail interiors on a national basis and successfully completed more than 500 projects ranging in value from $100,000 to $1,000,000. Godfrey’s past experience includes a client list featuring Starbucks, Jones Apparel Group, Tumi and Liz Claiborne Shoes and more. 

“Construction delays have an even greater impact in the retail industry, particularly if it means  delaying the start of a new franchise or chain location,” said Godfrey. “South Coast Improvement’s process in working with assisted living and senior living centers–where you have to build in harmony with sensitive, day-to-day operations—will translate very well for success in the retail industry.” 

South Coast Improvement utilizes Special Building Practices to ensure the comfort and safety of special needs of its clients and their tenants who occupy the spaces that are being renovated. South Coast Improvement’s experience, high standards of compliance, overall quality and their ability to complete projects on time and on budget, sets them apart from their competitors.
