Cranshaw Construction is a general contracting and construction management company with practical design and construction experience. Founded in 1983, the company has successfully completed over 20 million square feet of commercial space, totaling close to $2 billion in suburban and downtown Boston in the last 31 years. They have successfully completed a variety of complex projects ranging from shopping centers, assisted living and manufacturing/research and development facilities to television stations and first class office developments.


Cranshaw Construction is an affiliate of National Development, an interdisciplinary real estate firm providing development, property management and investment acquisition services. The company’s affiliation with National Development helps Cranshaw Construction to take an “owner’s perspective” in managing the construction of a project from the earliest conceptual phases through final occupancy.


The synergies and feedback received from the other disciplines and services provided by National Development, such as the property management division, allows Cranshaw Construction to have first hand and up to date knowledge as to what building elements and design operate most efficiently and cost effectively without compromising the marketability of the product in the future.


The team understands that there are multiple approaches to the development, design and construction of any particular project. Each project presents its own set of unique challenges that must be analyzed and balanced with the owner’s objectives to arrive at the best possible solution.


Cranshaw Construction has developed an aggressive approach that will provide for immediate participation of personnel, resources and procedures. We endorse a close working relationship with the owner/tenant and other team members. In the construction of over 20 million square feet, we have an impeccable record of on time and on budget construction.


As an owner oriented contractor, our philosophy is to identify costs and issues at the outset of a project, work closely with the project team on value engineering while balancing cost, quality and performance.
