For more than 15 years, Lemanski Construction has managed luxury residential and commercial projects, including new builds and remodeling, in the greater Boston area. Now Preston Lemanski and his team have expanded their expertise to Palm Beach County with new offices in West Palm Beach.

What inspired the expansion to Florida?

Preston fell in love with South Florida 12 years ago when working on a Boca Raton project for nine months. He has wanted to open a Florida office ever since.

What do you like best about working in Palm Beach County?

• Continuing to strengthen existing relationships - the ability to service existing customers with homes and businesses in both Massachusetts and FL.

• The opportunity to collaborate with new clientele.

• The ability to work with new trade partners.

• Anticipating new challenges, such as hurricanes vs. “nor’easters.” Both have damaging winds and major flooding, but the building codes are different between coastal New England and Southern Florida.

What has been your most challenging project?

Several years ago, Lemanski Construction was hired to convert a two-unit brownstone into a single-family residence. After years of owning the bottom three floors of a row house in a Boston historic district in the South End, the homeowners had the opportunity to purchase the top two floors and return the building to a single-family home. It took more than two years of planning and total interior demolition down to brick to rebuild the five-floor residence.

The interior rooms were designed in keeping with those of a South End single-family row house built in 1899 – with 21st Century upgrades to adapt to today’s needs. From the garden level’s open-plan family space to the fourth floor’s office and guest room, this home conforms to the city’s restrictions on the outside and family comfort on the inside.

The year of the scheduled demolition was also the year that Boston received a record 108.6” of snow over several months, thus delaying and delaying schedules. Mother Nature often operates on a different timeframe.
