Construction Today - November 2017 - 85

Once it's finished in March, Beverly middle school will have a
535-seat auditorium, two cafeterias totaling 704 seats, a gymnasium,
classrooms, media center and space for school administrators. As of
early November, the project was about 70 percent completed and
work was underway on interior finishes and site improvements.

Involved Owners

A strong reputation with clients
has allowed Agostini and Bacon
to take on larger projects.

«

work on Henry Higgins Middle School in Peabody, Mass., a $68.7 million project, was notable for being one of the largest middle schools
in the state, with more than 1,300 students.

Agostini Construction that same years. George and his son, Steven
Agostini, now own both companies, with George acting as the
president of Bacon and CEO of Agostini and Steven serving as the
president of Agostini and COO of Bacon.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the original company.
That longevity through multiple recessions and construction booms

"It has a lot to do with the owners, Steven Agostini and George Agostini," Puglia says. "They're involved in every job that we do and they
really push everybody to do their best on the job."
Because they are hands-on, George and Steven Agostini understand the fine details of every project and are able to make quick
decisions that save time and money, Puglia explains. Their decision-making and execution are supported by the talented supervi-
