New Warehouse, Sales and Office Space Support Stone Importer and Distributor’s Growth

WALTHAM, MASS. – February 27, 2014– Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., announced today that it recently completed a 33,000 square foot project for M S International (MSI) at 1080 University Avenue, Norwood, Mass.

The project included three components: a warehouse expansion, construction of a new accessory building and the renovation and addition of the office/showroom area. MSI, the leading importer and distributor of flooring, countertop, wall tile and hardscaping products in North America, chose Vantage Builders because the firm successfully completed a previous project.

Vantage Builders expanded MSI’s existing Stone Slab Storage Warehouse by 16,000 square feet, providing much needed space for MSI to store its growing Countertop Slab inventory. After reviewing site options, Vantage Builders built the expansion into the side of a hill adjacent to the existing warehouse. The project required a $200,000 structurally retained foundation, which provides the necessary support for MSI’s two 10-ton bridge cranes housed within the new addition.

The second phase of the project involved the construction of a 15,000 square foot accessory warehouse building. MSI desperately needed the new standalone facility to provide warehousing for its expanding line of porcelain tiles and landscape pavers. The project culminated with the renovation and 2,000 square foot expansion of MSI’s office/product showroom area.

“Due to our existing relationship, we had a very good grasp of what MSI needed with this project,” said Michael Thayer, project manager, Vantage Builders, Inc. “We understand that our work is much more than simply constructing a new building. Our goal is to ensure that the final project helps our client advance their business goals.”
