Our story

History and Culture

Teamwork is the foundation that builds success.

At VBA, we know what makes for great relationships, but we also know how to build them consistently and effectively to meet client needs in an ever evolving commercial real estate market.  

Over the past 20 years, we’ve built a culture of collaboration and communication that is fundamental to how we hire, train, and treat our people.  It’s why we have the best Project Managers, Supervisors, and subcontractors in the business.  It’s also why we have built a reputation in the New England commercial real estate and construction community for quality, honesty, and value that has gained us the opportunity to work with some of the most recognized names in technology, banking, and retail.

The Way we Work

Our Values

Effective and constant collaboration with architects, engineers, owners, project managers, and tenants is what sets VBA apart in our field.

In addition to developing a strong corporate culture, we invest in project management tools and processes to enhance team communications and collaboration for greater efficiency and value.  It’s this combination of art and science that gives us the agility and drive to meet the unexpected head on, and sets VBA apart in its ability to deliver on time and on budget, no matter what.

Whether it’s a large-scale building retrofit program or a small tenant improvement project, each project has the personalized attention of a dedicated Project Manager that owns the project from start to finish, ensuring a timely and quality result. The high standards to which we hold our in-house and subcontractor teams is how we guarantee quality workmanship to our clients.
