Career Opportunities at Cranshaw

Cranshaw is a 80-person general contracting and construction management company founded in 1983.  We are located in Newton Lower Falls, Massachusetts.  We have completed over $1 Billion dollars of commercial, multi-family, retail, senior housing, hospitality, industrial and medical work in the past 10 years alone.  Approximately 30-50% of our work comes from our parent company National Development and the remaining from other third party developers and institutional clients.  Our diversity of project types, ability to work in a diverse array of project types and building methods, and experience in urban as well as suburban locations provide Cranshaw with a stable and steady pipeline.

 

Our experience working hand in hand with our development and institutional partners provides us with a unique insight into the processes and goals of ownership.  Cranshaw’s expertise in pre-construction management and estimating also contribute to our growing success.  We were recently listed as the 9th largest general contractor in Massachusetts in the Boston Business Journal’s 2018 survey.
