Projects

What do we do at Five Star? Sometimes we renovate a new wing of a hospital while patients are feet away recovering from open-heart surgery. We use the highest standards of infection control and patient safety techniques. Sometimes we design a new hotel that will hold hundreds of guests. We create a place that’s inviting and spacious. And sometimes we restore an old building to its architectural grandeur. We work quickly yet gingerly, with an understanding of the building’s history.

No matter the style or the purpose, our projects consistently surpass our clients’ expectations. Across all of our focus areas—healthcare, commercial, education, industrial and restoration—Five Star meets the distinctive needs of each client to produce a project of tremendous quality.

Our focus areas include:

Healthcare

With extensive experience working in hospitals and healthcare facilities, Five Star understands the unique needs of the healthcare industry. We invest heavily in cutting-edge infection control technology and patient safety techniques. Our goal is to fulfill our clients’ visions while keeping patients safe and healthy. We are adept at working on active patient floors and minimizing disruptions. Our clients value us for our integrity, attention to safety, and commitment to quality.

Education

At large state universities, private colleges and independent schools, Five Star constructs buildings that facilitate learning. And we design buildings that fit seamlessly into the existing aesthetics of your campus or schoolyard. We’ll get to know your school so we can provide the right fit, whether it’s a new building, addition, laboratory, or expanded wing. We work quickly to diminish interruptions to your school day, and we always abide by our commitment to quality. We work in both the private and public sectors.

Commercial

We tackle an array of commercial construction projects, such as apartment buildings, police stations, banks, pavilions, hotels, active airports and other transportation facilities. We offer industry insight, cost-effective solutions and a team of experts in the field. We understand the parameters that make a commercial space successful—from high-impact lobbies to smartly designed parking lots to comfortable dining spaces. We excel at interior fit-outs, renovations and new construction.

Restoration

New England is known for its architecture, from the first colonial periods to the early twentieth century. We understand that communities are often built around landmark buildings, such as old churches and mills and town halls. We offer expert preservation and repair services. We employ artisans and tradespeople who utilize historic methods and materials to restore buildings to their former glory and ensure they’ll stand for generations to come.

Industrial

Companies turn to Five Star for their industrial construction needs, such as factories and warehouses. We provide new construction and major upgrades, and we help navigate the permitting processes for industrial buildings. We have the experience to spot problems in advance, we use cost-saving methods that never diminish quality, and we can offer workflow advice on distribution and production lines to increase efficiency. Our reputation for speed, quality and safety means clients return to us to tackle their complex projects.

Community Involvement

Five Star is located in Easthampton, a beautiful and booming old mill town in Western Massachusetts. We’re grateful to be a part of this community, and we show our dedication through our participation in the region. We support local and national charitable causes, sponsor events, and volunteer our time and expertise. In the past few years, we helped nearby communities rebuild after a tornado ravaged the area; we hosted a charity golf tournament and donated the proceeds to the Dakin Humane Society; and we offered support to Baystate Children’s Hospital, Riverside Industries, and the Ronald McDonald House, just to name a few.
