Mission Statement

Connolly Brothers Inc. will continue our century old tradition of providing our clients with value added project support. We will continue to set the highest standards for construction and attention to detail that has been our hallmark since 1880. As a result, every project outcome will exceed client expectations and deliver satisfaction long after construction ends.

Our History

Established in 1880, Connolly is an open-shop/merit shop general construction contractor and construction management firm based in Beverly, Massachusetts specializing in private industrial, commercial, and institutional construction.

We are currently in our fifth generation of family leadership. Today, owner Stephen J. Connolly IV and his son Jay Connolly are just as involved in client projects as were the original founders, Stephen J. Connolly and his three brothers, when they founded the company.

We are dedicated to providing quality, professional construction services to our clients. Our years of experience enable us to price and budget more accurately, manage more effectively, and add value at every stage in the construction process.

We are proud of the fact that year-in and year-out, over 70% of our clients return to Connolly with plans for new construction projects.
