AGC of America Recognizes Consigli Construction Co., Inc. for Volunteer Work to Update Boston Marathon Attack Survivor’s Home



At its annual national convention in Las Vegas, the Associated General Contractors of America recognized Consigli Construction Co., Inc. with the “AGC in the Community Award” for the company’s volunteer work to update a Boston Marathon attack survivor’s home in Reading, Mass. led by Superintendent Todd Flanders.

Flanders, who accepted the award on behalf of the company, led a group of volunteers from Consigli and several local subcontractors to fully renovate and update Marc Fucarile’s house so he would have access throughout.

“Community service is a fundamental part of who we are at Consigli so we’re truly moved by this recognition,” said Matthew Consigli, President of Consigli. “Our team of volunteers led by Todd were determined to make a remarkable difference in someone’s life.”

“This is a very special honor for me to accept this award on behalf of Consigli and I’m proud that we were able to help a member of our community,” said Flanders. “This award is very humbling and we’re grateful to all who worked to make sure Marc could have full access throughout his home.”

Fucarile lost his leg in the attacks on the Boston Marathon in 2013 and his house needed specific structural upgrades to allow him to move around his house. Improvements included a wheelchair lift in the garage, wide hallways, sliding doors, as well as specially designed closets and ramps.

The award is handed out every year as part of an initiative of AGC Charities Inc. and is designed to showcase the community service projects of AGC of America’s chapters and members. The awards recognize specific service projects that epitomize the essence of charitable giving, through actual hands-on service and donations to charitable organizations.

Aside from Consigli, several subcontractors worked on the home as well, including Marshall Roofing, S&F Concrete, Prime Steel, The New England Carpenter Training Fund, HVAC contractor C.P. Blouin, Youngblood Plumbing and Heating, John Kaupman Plumbing, Local 103, Gaston Electric, material supplier SRS/Heritage, New England Foam, Century Drywall, Pavilion Floors, DePaoli Mosaic, Allegheny Floors, N.E.R. Construction Management, Exquisite Landscaping, G&C Concrete and excavation contractor W.L. French.
