Institutional Construction Company

Start-To-Finish Satisfaction Since 1923

It’s not every day that your institution needs to find a construction company. Your organization usually isn’t thinking about making large changes to your complex, renovating offices, or building a new wing.

You don’t have time to work with multiple contractors sorting through multiple bids or to worry if the contractors are up to the task. You don’t want to regret such an important choice for your business. You need a construction manager or general contractor to facilitate the entire project so you can concentrate on your daily work.

Trust R.H. White Construction for start-to-finish satisfaction, just like we’ve provided since 1923.

Not Just Construction

R.H. White Construction is more than just a great team of construction workers. We have a detailed process that starts long before we put hammer to nail. It doesn’t finish until we know that you’re in good hands to maintain your project.

Our Pre-Construction Consulting Process

Before we commit to a construction project, R.H. White has designed a discovery process to ensure that your institutional construction project is completed successfully.

    Pre-Construction Consulting

    Even after all this, R.H. White consults with your team in the weeks and months leading up to breaking ground to make sure your project is completed successfully, safely, and on-time.

    All Types of Institutional Construction Projects

    Institutional buildings have to serve many different visitors, often at the same time. Offices, locker rooms, athletic areas, and support areas like parking lots are just par for the course when building institutional buildings.

    R.H. White is uniquely capable for the most comprehensive institutional building projects.

    In addition, R.H. White is an expert in creatively managing utilities for intensive institutional builds, such as on-site process pipework, underground utilities and even water and wastewater treatment facilities.

    Design – Build – Maintain – Train

    After the pre-construction consulting process, R.H. White can handle every step of the institutional construction process. We work with architects and designers who know the challenges of building for offices, locker rooms, and recreational areas. We then put our nearly 500 employees including skilled craftsman and our state-of-the-art equipment fleet to work completing your project.

    But we don’t stop when the last finishing nail is driven.

    Our Construction Services Department can provide ongoing maintenance on your building, from simple checkups to emergency repairs, allowing you to focus on what you do best. And for more complicated projects, we can train your team to do the day-to-day usage and maintenance, making sure that you can keep your own buildings running without ongoing contracts.

    Jobs of All Sizes

    While it might seem that institutional construction is limited to new builds, our process and team is well-suited for renovations and redesigns. We’ve built new recreational buildings from the ground up and also redesigned and renovated outdated facilties for our clients. We’ve even completed phased buildouts that minimize any impact to your daily operations. Using our pre-construction consulting process, R.H. White will develop a construction plan that’s right for your project and your company.

    Our Previous Institutional Construction Projects

    4-Story Multi-Use Facility Design/Build
    R.H. White completed a design/build renovation of a 4-story multi-use facility for the YMCA of Central MA in Worcester, MA, including offices, locker rooms, and a wellness center. We undertook a close-quarters excavation to install a new elevator, and we designed and installed a running track going through a suspended glass tunnel.

    Safety & Sustainability

    R.H. White is absolutely committed to training for positive safety behaviors. We know that the best and most efficient projects start and end with safety. Every day on the job site, we start with a Safety Huddle to ensure that all hazards are accounted for and our team can navigate them with ease.

    In 2015, we opened the Leonard H. White Training Center to ensure our employees have the best knowledge and skills for their job site duties. Finally, we spend more than $2,000,000 annually to keep our team at the peak of their knowledge, leading them to prioritize their safety and the safety of their crews, subcontractors, and your employees above all else. It’s this dedication to safety that keeps our projects efficient, on-time, and on-budget.
