Kaplan Construction Wins National Excellence Awards

Kaplan Construction has been recognized by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) with two national Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards for two projects it recently completed in Greater Boston.

The awards were bestowed for Brookline, MA-based Kaplan’s work on renovating the Revolution Hotel in Boston, and the restoration and renovation of the historic Congregation Kehillath Israel (KI) in Brookline. The EIC awards program honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects.

Built within the existing walls of one of America’s first YWCAs, the Revolution Hotel project saw Kaplan renovate guest rooms, bathrooms, and common areas to convert a former hostel into an urban boutique hotel.

In celebration of its centennial year in 2017, Congregation KI sought to create a multi-generational, inclusive center for Jewish learning and worship. Over the course of 10 years, Kaplan provided pre-construction and construction management services for the extensive project.
