Featured Project: HARVARD UNIVERSITY - MEMORIAL CHURCH - Cambridge, MA


RM Cochran is well known for our ability to efficiently and effectively manage large projects involving many trades. These projects can range from window replacement, office fit ups, and building waterproofing. What many may not know is that the same staff performing these larger projects are also experienced finish carpenters as well. At Memorial Church in Harvard Yard, we added a custom corner bookshelf for an office in the basement of the historic property. So the next time you have a project and are not sure if we can do it, contact us at info@rmcochran.com.
