2006 Massport "Term Mechanical Contractor of the Year Finalist" - Aviation Properties, Logan International Airport and L.G. Hanscom Airfield.

2004 Massport "Term Mechanical Contractor of the Year" - Aviation Properties, Logan International Airport and L.G. Hanscom Airfield.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked on many substantial school projects in Massachusetts with P.J. Kennedy and Sons. The list includes the Quincy High School, the Goodyear Elementary School in Woburn and most recently the Essex North Shore Agricultural Technical High School in Danvers. P.J. Kennedy has held the contracts for either, or both, Mechanical and Plumbing on the different projects.

What sets them apart from most of their competition is their personal commitment to quality, teamwork and service. When I have P. J. Kennedy on one of my projects, I know that their work will be done right; every one of their professionals is knowledgeable, experienced and a real team player and will go out of their way to make the project a success. From managing the projects and supervising operations in the field, to every man on their staff, for that matter, I know that I can count on them to get the project done right, to quickly address any issues or to even provide technical advice when I have a need. That commitment and dedication is very important to every one of us in this business.

I would be happy to have them on any project and as a matter of fact, I actively encourage them to bid on my projects.

James Driscoll - Project Executive - Gilbane Building Company

PJ Kennedy & Sons was the HVAC contractor for the Robert W. Healy Public Safety Facility and the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School projects completed in 2008 and 2011 respectively for the City of Cambridge. The working relationship between the City, General Contractor and PJK was honest, open and communicative. The workmanship and dedication of their onsite staff was always appreciated, especially when system issued occurred during and post completion of the project. I worked with PJK for the first time in 2001, as a general contractor, and see no difference in their attitude towards excellence in responsiveness and service to a project. They have been one of the best HVAC contractors I have worked with for over 10 years.
Michael J. Black -City of Cambridge - Owners Project Manager

PJ Kennedy & Sons was the HVAC and control contractor for the Woburn Memorial High School (6 years ago) and most recently the Goodyear Elementary School. I have nothing but high praise for their entire team and the quality of the finished project(s). Their entire staff performed their work in the most professional manner, great attitude, superior – workmanship, communication, cooperation and willingness to be a team player with all members of the construction and design teams. They have always been there with support well after the schools have been turned over to us. I can only hope that PJ Kennedy is the successful bidder on future projects.
David Dunkley - Director of Building Facilities - Woburn Public Schools

PJ Kennedy & Sons provided the HVAC and temperature control work for the new Everett High School. PJK is conscientious of their work while conforming to the plans and specifications. Their performance, proficiency, and workmanship were superior. They provided the manpower and equipment required to complete activities as shown in the construction schedule. PJK, from their office personnel to the field foremen, display construction knowledge and capabilities far beyond the scope of work they have performed for Suffolk Construction on the Everett High School project. We look forward to working with PJK on future projects.
Frank Geary - Project Executive - Suffolk Construction.

Working with PJ Kennedy & Sons was a uniquely positive experience most recently on the Jeremiah Burke School Project in Dorchester Ma. Throughout the project, they consistently demonstrated a superior knowledge of construction, expertise in general management and a professional and personal attitude that was a pleasure to work with. I found them to be simply the best in the qualities I appreciate most in a subcontractor: open communication, honesty, and cooperation. As a result of all this, a very difficult and complex project was completed on time and within owner budgeted costs.
Brian Santos - W.T. Rich - Senior Project Manager

I personally completed the punch list for the Saugus Veterans Memorial Elementary School and was very pleased with the overall outcome of the entire mechanical installation. I would like to take this opportunity to complement you on the outstanding performance of your company and your mechanics in completing the designs we prepared for you on schedule and in exemplary fashion. With the above said we look forward to future opportunities in working with you and your company.
