As a young girl, I remember going to Lincoln Park in Dartmouth Massachusetts, which at the time, was an amusement park. The park opened in 1894 and closed down in 1987. If you were from New England, Lincoln Park was the place to go to have fun. The giant wooden roller coaster…the carousel…the clambake pavilion…the rollerskating area…the ballroom…the bowling lanes, it was all there. And, it was sad to see it go. Unfortunately, the site was practically abandoned for nearly 25 years.
Fast-forward to today and the property is being revitalized as a neighborhood of 57 newly-constructed single family homes. The streets of the Lincoln Park Place bear the names of the old park rides. The developer, Bristol Pacific Homes of Fall River, Massachusetts, believes that “just as this site once was host to countless family memories, so too do we believe that the new homes at Lincoln Park Place will carry on that legacy.”
PSI was recently awarded a project for Lincoln Park Place. Bristol Pacific has been a client of ours since 2003. Most of the projects we’ve handled for them have been either office renovations or old textile mill conversions into office space. This project was a little different in that it involves housing units. We are fortunate to be awarded both the HVAC and the fire protection portions of the project.
One of the reasons the developer awarded us the project was because we are a local, woman-owned mechanical contractor. We fit both criteria and are proud to be able to put our name on this project…and take a walk down Memory Lane at the same time.
