Cambridge, MA (November 17, 2016) – CTA Construction Managers today announced that it recently has completed the 12th of 36 phases on the Newtowne Court renovation project, which includes updates to eight buildings and 268 affordable housing units in Cambridge, Mass.

The project consists of a comprehensive interior and exterior renovation to 268 affordable family units at Newtowne Court, which is owned by the Cambridge Housing Authority.

The Newtowne Court renovation plan calls for extensive upgrades to the interior of the 268 units, including removal of asbestos containing materials, engineered wood floors, drywall, and paint, replacement of all windows, new HVAC systems, electrical upgrades, plumbing upgrades and installation of a fire protection system. Improvements will also be made to the bathrooms and kitchens, including new finishes and fixtures, appliances, countertops, and cabinet doors.
