Watertown, MA – Erland has been working on multiple projects at Riverworks, a completely repositioned brick-and-beam complex with two interconnected, renovated mill buildings along the Charles River.

Originally built in 1919 as a woolen mill, the 195,400sf, multistory structure is now a flexible work environment with highly functional office, lab space, and amenities. The building’s original function is reflected in sheep-themed decorative elements throughout the space.

Designed by CBT Architects, Erland worked with Spear Street Capital and Holm & Associates to complete multiple projects at Riverworks, including a new lobby and corridors, mail distribution center, café and servery, fitness center, offices, and site reconfigurations.

Owner’s representative on the Riverworks projects, Christina Holm of Holm & Associates, said, “I have worked with Erland Construction on several challenging projects over many years, from sophisticated labs, to site work, to interior fit ups, and have always found their team to be top notch. Our Riverworks Project was no exception.”
