WALTHAM, MASS. – May 10, 2016 – Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., today announced that it completed a new, 22,000-square-foot office build-out for Columbia Gas of Massachusetts at 100 Brookdale Ave., Springfield, Mass. The location will house the utility’s customer service call center and a conference and training facility, which are being relocated from 2025 Roosevelt Ave. in Springfield. 
 
“Columbia Gas is an excellent client and we’re glad to have had the opportunity to work with them,” said John Connor, principal, Vantage Builders.  “A key element of this project was the very quick timeframe.  Our experienced team, particularly our project manager and superintendent, were able to complete the work within seven weeks of signing the contract.”
 
The site, previously utilized by the U.S. Postal Service as its western New England distribution center, needed an entire redesign, to allow for a layout required by a call center.  Prior to conducting the internal demolition work, Vantage performed a complete abatement process.  Following plans from Saccoccio & Associates, Vantage created an efficient and flexible workplace that fosters teamwork.
 
The location has two 30-person conference rooms and approximately 120 workstations.  The workstations are outfitted with Allsteel products, with dual monitors on articulating arms and wardrobe storage units.  
 
Mobile pedestals with cushion tops throughout the office enable impromptu meetings and encourage collaboration.  A breakroom and kitchenette has high-top seating, pendant lights and a large-screen television.  A mother’s room provides a private, dedicated space for nursing mothers. 
 
The new training center is comprised of two 1,000-square-foot rooms, each of which feature state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and can accommodate up to 24 individuals.  Modular tables, with modesty panels, provide Columbia Gas flexibility in setting up custom training sessions.  Completing the build-out, Vantage installed new HVAC and electrical systems, including a back-up generator, as well as new paint, carpeting and other finishes. 
 
The building is owned by Falvey Linen.  The project team included Cushman & Wakefield as the owner’s project manager (OPM) and Engineering Design Services, Inc. for engineering services.
