Boston Properties, Inc. Hires Vantage For Project At 40 Shattuck Road, Andover, Mass.

WALTHAM, MASS. – August 13, 2015– Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., today announced that the firm was hired by Boston Properties to complete a 13,000-square foot office renovation for Agri-Mark, producers of the award-winning Cabot dairy products.

The project was completed at 40 Shattuck Road, Andover, Mass., the dairy cooperative’s new corporate headquarters. Agri-Mark moved to Andover after being located in Methuen for more than 30 years.

“We took the opportunity of a lease expiration to conduct an extensive space search, with the goal of modernizing and right-sizing our office,” said Bill Beaton, senior vice president of human resources at Agri-Mark. “Our newly constructed location in Andover perfectly meets our needs and will allow us to more efficiently support our dairy farm families. We appreciate the efforts of the Vantage team in creating our new corporate headquarters.”

In order to get the location ready for Agri-Mark, Vantage first completed a full gut demolition of the existing space. The project required significant systems work, including modifying and upgrading the electrical and HVAC.

The finished project includes new flooring throughout the entire office, upgraded wall and ceiling finishes and customized millwork. The paintwork has a vibrant blue that promotes the company’s branding and provides a fresh look to the new office. Additionally, the office features a significant amount of interior glasswork and a new, welcoming entrance with dramatic signage for the dairy cooperative.

“Given the timing of the start of Agri-Mark’s new lease, this was definitely a fast-track tenant fit-up,” said Ed Silva, principal, Vantage Builders. “We enjoy getting offices ready for Boston Properties’ impressive list of tenants. And we appreciate the opportunity to work with a company like Agri-Mark that has such deep local roots.”

The project team includes architectural services from Perkins + Will and engineering services from AHA Consulting Engineers.
