Mediate Management Company
About this pro
With Mediate Management Company, the difference is quality. We ensure that our portfolio property managers do not have so many properties that they cannot give the proper time and attention to each of the buildings they manage. For every two property managers, there is also a property assistant to aid in the day-to-day administration and communication needs of a property. There is always someone available to take our clients' calls and to ensure that their needs are met in a timely fashion. Projects are handled by a separate and distinct division to ensure that a manager does not get bogged down by the time-intensive oversight and communication that goes into a major building project.

- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Project: Envelope restoration at 287 Hanover Street, Boston. Problem: The 14-unit condominium in the North End had moisture seeping into the interior causing leaks and structural damage. The mortar was deteriorating and the wood trim, flashing, and flat shingled roof were beyond repair and needed replacing. Recommendation: Mediates project manager recommended an exterior envelope study to determine the scope of work. Subsequently, contract documents were developed, approved and put out to bid. Solution: Workers re-shingled the roof, re-pointed the mortar joints, cut and replaced bricks at all elevations, rebuilt the dormers and replaced the roof on the front mansard. Final Outcome: After a complete envelope restoration the buildings moisture infiltration issues were fully resolved.
