Boston, Massachusetts (PressExposure) April 01, 2011 -- Caledonia Construction Company, Inc. announced its awarding of a three-year contract from the City of Boston Department of Neighborhood Development, the citys forward-thinking department that is exceptionally successful in revitalizing city neighborhoods.

The Department of Neighborhood Development is consistently refining its programs to meet the challenges of new realities in the development and management of the citys building stock.
