High-Profile: Up-Front

Publisher’s Message Celebrating 30 years with Nadeau

Fire Protection Specialists

High-Profile had the good fortune recently to visit with Nadeau Corporation Construction Development & Engineering as it welcomed clients, employees and colleagues to the Stadium Theatre in Woonsocket, R.I. to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Guests were called upon to come and celebrate with the commercial construction firm and let loose for a dinner and concert by rock and roll hall of fame artist, Dave Mason. “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 30th,” said President Ernie Nadeau. For 30 years Nadeau Corporation has helped hundreds of local business owners plan and implement their commercial projects while consistently practicing under one notion; treat every project as an opportunity to earn the next one. And it’s worked. Nadeau has a lengthy repeat client list and it spans across almost every industry. A professional engineer, Ernie Nadeau opened the doors to Nadeau Corporation in April of 1984. He did so with the vision that a commercial general contracting firm could put the client first, do a little extra for them, and by doing so establish a long-term and loyal client base. 30 years later, the room was filled with proof that Ernie’s vision has come true. “It’s pretty clear to me that our team has been an important asset to local companies over the years. I can’t tell

Mark Menard and Ernie Nadeau you how many projects we were able to breathe new life into that would have been otherwise abandoned if it wasn’t for Nadeau’s ability to apply value engineering to over-budget projects,” said 22-year Nadeau project manager, Mark Menard. Some clients and colleagues that were represented at the event included: Paolino Properties, Vision 3 Architects, US Solar Works, RGB Architects, Yankee Fiber, Rustoleum, Prism Painting, Victorian Inn’s By The Sea, Gilbert Electric, Steve Nelson Associates Architects, Hanna Instruments, National Land Surveyors, Sunfire Protection, A1 Home Improvement, AO Construction, Jahn’s Metal Craft, and Smart Management. “This isn’t the finish line by any means,” said Nadeau “we’re just stopping to smell the roses and thank those who have made us what we are today.”
