In Touch with the Community

OUR PEOPLE

We have established relationships with the communities in which we work. Our in-house Community Relations Committee seeks out opportunities to contribute to the Town of Burlington, where we are headquartered, and other communities where we have a presence. Our recent successes have included sponsoring annual scholarships for a Burlington High School and a Merrimack College student interested in a career in construction, raising money for victims of natural disasters, and supporting our local food pantry.

Erland was founded in 1977 as the open shop arm of a major construction firm to serve the needs of an office development client in Burlington, Massachusetts. Over the years, our expertise has grown to many major market sectors including academic, multifamily residential, senior living, life sciences, and hotel/hospitality.

 

Our expertise in conceptual estimating goes back to our roots as a design/build contractor, and we have continued to hone those skills. As a Construction Manager, our clients have come to rely on the accuracy of our budgets and our ability to envision full project scope.
