Corporate

Vantage Builders has completed a wide range of corporate projects for many tenants, building owners and property managers during our 20 years in operation. Our experience in this sector includes projects ranging from ground-up construction to office renovations and tenant improvement projects.

We have helped companies move their corporate headquarters, establish new sales offices, expand to accommodate growth and embrace new workplace ideas and strategies, such as an open floorplan, to improve communication and collaboration among teams.

We have strong relationships with many of the region’s top commercial real estate brokers and ownership groups who have hired the firm to help increase building occupancy and improve tenant retention. We have conducted capital improvement programs (façades, roofing, building systems, etc.); prepared office space for incoming tenants; completed tenant improvements; and improved building common areas, including lobbies, cafeterias, game rooms and conference rooms.

In all projects, whether for owners or occupiers, we ensure that our work supports their business goals. While this is a main area of work for us, each client project is unique and we work hard to ensure complete client satisfaction.

The Watch Factory

Waltham, MA | Multiple projects

Berkeley Investments has been a Vantage Builders client since the firm was founded in 2000. Vantage has completed projects at numerous Berkeley assets, helping the building owner increase occupancy rates and improve tenant retention. At the Watch Factory, a 400,000-square-foot mixed-use development located along the Charles River in Waltham, Vantage has completed more than a dozen projects, helping Berkeley welcome new tenants with office build-outs, renovate or expand existing offices and complete tenant improvements, as well as perform base building and common area upgrades. Being engaged in so many projects at one location has enabled Vantage to develop an excellent working relationship with the Berkeley property management team and its numerous subcontractors. The Vantage team has also gained a thorough understanding of all the building’s systems, including HVAC, electrical and plumbing. Vantage has worked with Watch Factory tenants in a wide range of industries, including Devoted Health, Takeoff Technologies, Radius Innovation & Development, connectRN, CyberX and LumiraDX. 

swissnex Boston

Cambridge, MA | 2,500 SF | Fusion Design Consultants

swissnex is a network of science and technology offices whose mission is to connect Switzerland and the United States through education, research, innovation, and arts initiatives. Vantage Builders completely revamped swissnex Boston’s East Coast hub, which opened in 2000 as its first U.S. outpost. The new space features an open and welcoming atmosphere, with intricate lighting and décor. The flooring combines new hardwood with refurbished wood from the original office, symbolizing the long-lasting and future relationships between the two countries. Vantage installed a custom acoustic ceiling that was built by a vendor in Switzerland and shipped to Cambridge. A new server room supports the data and telecom needs of the office.

Lincoln North

Lincoln, MA | Multiple projects

Real Capital Solutions, a Colorado-based national real estate owner, purchased Lincoln North in 2018 and began a capital improvement program to help retain existing tenants and to increase occupancy at the 125,682-SF office building. As part of the capital improvements, Vantage Builders completely renovated the building’s cafeteria, built a new corporate conference room and small meeting room, and performed upgrades to the exterior, including significant outdoor lighting. Additionally, RCS hired Vantage to complete tenant fit-out projects for Thompson Habib Denison, UMass Lowell Research Institute, Vodia Networks and Georgia Tech Research Institute. In each of the projects, the Vantage team displayed great care to minimize disruption and impact to the employees in the very active, three-story building. 
 

51 Sawyer Road

Waltham, MA | 15,000 SF | Fusion Design Consultants

Vantage Builders has worked on a number of projects for Albany Road Real Estate Partners, from Waltham to Westborough to Springfield. In the lobby area of 51 Sawyer Road in Waltham, Vantage created a more welcoming, bright environment, first by removing a large and imposing decorative staircase that had connected the first and second floors and also by installing all-new flooring, ceilings, paint and lighting. The elevator surrounds include metal wall paneling and decorative moss. In the adjoining café, the kitchen and service areas were given aesthetic enhancements, while the seating area was expanded to support additional diners and to allow better flow. New finishes, abundant lighting and new furniture help to create a more relaxing atmosphere.

UMass Lowell Research Institute

Lincoln, MA | 17,000 SF | Hayes/Creager Architects

The University of Massachusetts Lowell Research Institute (UMLRI) develops innovative solutions for a wide range of defense and commercial customers. Vantage Builders renovated UMLRI’s satellite campus in Lincoln, MA creating multiple private offices, conference rooms, and a training area. The space features a highly technical audio-visual package with fully integrated video platforms. The project included new duct work throughout, as well as a full data package to support the Institute’s heavy network requirements. Many materials used in the renovation required long lead times, so Vantage coordinated orders and deliveries and provided precise planning that maintained the renovation schedule. Vantage Builders worked closely with multiple departments throughout the University of Massachusetts, Lowell as well as the tenant in the adjacent occupied suite to minimize disruptions to all user groups.

 

Casa Systems

Andover, MA | 23,000 SF | McGuinness Group

Vantage began by completely gutting the two floors, to create an open area to build on plans from project architects, the McGuinness Group. A striking glass staircase was built between the second and third floors, to enable collaboration among the growing team. The office features high-end millwork and attractive translucent partitions from 3form provide an intriguing design element while also boosting the interior’s natural light. The expanded space features 22 offices and room for 97 workstations, 4 conference rooms and a 16-person board room. A new presentation room that accommodates 60 people also serves as a lunch room, providing a nice place for employees to gather. A pre-action fire sprinkler system, which protects computer equipment from accidental activation, was installed in the server room. The server room was also outfitted with a separate cooling system.

Quiet Logistics

Devens, MA | 24,000 SF | Vision 3 Architects

Quiet Logistics, a leader in third-party fulfillment solutions, expanded within its headquarters building and hired Vantage Builders for the build-out. Using a Design-Build model, Vantage acted as project lead, directing the team members from Vision 3 Architects, our subcontractors and Quiet Logistics’ internal resources. Vantage built a 27-foot high demising wall to separate the new office and warehouse sections. The office area features 20 renovated offices, meeting rooms ranging from small huddle rooms to a large conference room, and a new café area. The space has new ceilings, carpeting, paint, and laminate flooring, as well as new electrical and telecommunications/data. The newly renovated space combines seamlessly with the rest of Quiet Logistics’ presence in the building and creates a welcoming environment for employees and visitors alike.

Reward Gateway

Boston, MA | 5,000 SF | Fusion Design Consultants

Vantage Builders completed the renovation of Reward Gateway’s new U.S. headquarters, located at 141 Tremont St. in Boston, overlooking the Boston Common. Reward Gateway, an employee engagement technology company, opened the office to support its rapid growth in the U.S. The office design, which follows that of the firm’s London hub, reflects and promotes Reward Gateway’s mission of making the world a better place to work. Vantage did a complete fit-out of the 4,515-square-foot office from vacant space on the building’s eighth floor. The space puts a high premium on collaboration and enabling cooperative work based on company and project goals rather than on fixed seating locations. There are huddle areas of various sizes, open workspace sections and even quiet reflection rooms for focus and thought. Many walls feature markerboard paint for easily capturing and sharing ideas.

Strategic Spaces

Boston, MA | 4,040 SF | studioTROIKA

Vantage Builders completed the renovation of Strategic Spaces’ new, expanded headquarters at 280 Summer St. in Boston’s Seaport District. The commercial furniture and custom prefab solution provider relocated to the Seaport District from 40 Broad St., almost doubling its office size to approximately 7,000 square feet. Vantage did a complete fit-out of the first-floor location. One of the first steps was to infill a pre-existing spiral staircase, which had left a 5' x 8' hole, with a new metal deck and concrete. The project included the installation of new HVAC and electrical systems.  The Client Experience Center has four private offices, three huddle rooms, one large conference room and a state of the art atrium space that is encompassed by a DIRTT Timber frame canopy.

Thompson Habib Denison

Lincoln, MA | 22,000 SF | McGuinness Group

Vantage Builders was hired by Real Capital Solutions to renovate a second floor office at Lincoln North, to welcome their new tenant, Thompson Habib Denison. Critical to the successful completion of the project was our ability to keep the construction noise to a minimum in the very active three-story building. Thirteen new glass whiteboards encourage interactive work among employees. Two café areas, with luxury millwork, stone countertops and LVT flooring, provide space for staff to have lunch or take a break and recharge. To accommodate the floorplan, new thermostats were installed and ductwork was rerouted.
