84,000 SF, Million Dollar Project Improves Company’s Manufacturing Business Center

WALTHAM, MASS. – March 12, 2014– Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., today announced an 84,000 square foot renovation project the firm completed for Olympus Surgical Technologies America at 136 Turnpike Road, Southborough, Mass.

The multi-phase project involved renovation of the company’s executive areas, a new training area and carpet installation. Olympus Surgical Technologies America, a proven technology leader in the field of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) device development and manufacturing, recently signed a lease renewal and was awarded a tenant allowance for office upgrades. The company worked with project managers Holm & Associates and, after an in-depth construction management process, chose Vantage Builders for its expertise with similar projects requiring work being completed in an occupied office setting.

“We had a primary concern of ensuring zero downtime for Olympus Surgical Technologies America’s business, which can be tricky when working around employees,” said Ed Silva, principal, Vantage Builders, Inc. “By utilizing double shifts, we were not only able to complete the job within our specified timeframe but also while allowing the normal flow of day-to-day operations.”

Vantage Builders performed a complete demolition and rebuild in the company’s executive office suite, creating a more modern, vibrant and efficient area. Vantage Builders constructed a 2,100 square foot training area that included new air conditioning via a 25-ton rooftop unit.

Finally, the company’s workspace was revitalized, with the installation of new carpeting throughout 84,479 square feet of office space on the second and third floors of the building. 136 Turnpike Road houses more than 100 Olympus employees in the areas of research and development, marketing, supply chain management, finance, legal, IT, human resources, and administration.

Vantage Builders worked closely with the property managers, Capital Group Properties, and Holm & Associates. The architects on the project were Fine Associates and the engineers were Avid Engineers (MEP) and Hung & Associates (structural engineering).
