Columbia is Featured as Company of the Month as We Celebrate 90 Years!

Columbia Construction is featured as Company of Month in the June Edition of the New England Real Estate Journal. As we celebrate 90 years in the construction business, we proudly share the story about our founding and plans for the future.

Founded in 1925 by Samuel Lilly, the company started on the streets of Columbia Road in Dorchester, MA. Sam and his brothers grew the business by building a number of residential buildings around the Boston area, mostly triple-deckers.
