Testimonials

Read what our clients have to say about BSBSI.

“I have worked for Daniel O’Connell’s Sons for over 35 years and have come into contact with many subcontractors and suppliers in the tri-state area and few have displayed the integrity and professionalism that you and the employees of Bay State Building Specialties have. The spectrum of your firm’s expertise meets the full range of a client’s needs by providing extensive knowledge of products with installation procedures performed by qualified installers and complimented by helpful office personnel with positive attitudes - a hard combination to beat.”

Steven K. Pelletier
Director of Preconstruction Services
Daniel O’Connell’s Sons


"For years I visualized BSBSI as this roll-top-desk purveyor of slate blackboards! I entrusted Bay State with almost a dozen different products on a pharmaceutical project with an impossible six-month schedule. It proved to be a prudent decision, as Bay State delivered and installed three-quarters of a million dollars worth of specialties and beat the impossible schedule set by our international client. Bay State is without a doubt the premier specialty contractor in the Greater Boston Area."

Don Ballou
Project Executive
Walsh Brothers, Inc.


"I want to thank you for completing the project in Harvard Hall. The blackboards look great. Your staff did a wonderful job. They were extremely pleasant and very professional. It was nice to see a crew come in and finish a job so quickly and clean up so well after their work. I want to thank you for a terrific job."

“I’ve had the pleasure of doing business with BSBSI on various projects over the last seven years and have entrusted them with contracts in excess of one million dollars.  Their performance on jobs both large and small has been exceptional and gives me the confidence to recommend them to anyone in the construction industry. “
