New Install Massachusetts

Hey everyone. I have a friend who is looking to have hot water heating system installed in her house.
The house was built in the 1930's.
It has an octopus oil-fired forced hot air system from probably the 1960's in the basement.
She's having NG brought in soon.
I mentioned CI baseboard over regular baseboard due to its radiant qualities.
House is a bungalow with a recently finished walk-up attic.
She was thinking two zones plus possibly a 3rd zone for the basement.
She's on the fence about wether or not to have a separate NG DHW or get it off of the boiler.
I told her she needs someone to do proper heat loss calculations for the house so that everything works correctly and efficiently.
So she's looking for a pro in the area with a great reputation and attention to detail.
House is located on the town line of New Bedford & Acushnet, MA.
Any recommendations or tips on system features and designs as well as installers would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
