Newton, MA – Integrated Builders of Rockland announced that it has broken ground on a 105,000sf office expansion at Two Wells Avenue in Newton on behalf of owner Two Wells Avenue, LLC. The new three-story addition will require extensive demolition on the north and west portions of the existing facility and will ultimately increase the building’s total size from 69,000sf to 127,000sf.
Currently, Two Wells Avenue is a 69,000sf, single-story, steel-framed building that was completed in the 1970s. Integrated Builders will utilize selective demolition of the facility to preserve 27,000sf of existing space on the west side, where the new 105,000sf addition will be attached. The updated facility will boast a modern design with a glass exterior, an expanded parking lot, new utilities, and an underground stormwater infiltration system. Additionally, a 3,162sf common corridor will be installed to connect the new and existing building areas to one another.
The project team will provide construction management and contracting services and will be led by project manager Brian Kidder, superintendent Craig Ablondi, and assistant project manager Barbara Frazier.
Spagnolo Gisness & Associates, Inc., will provide architecture and planning services. The project is expected to be completed in December 2016.
“Two Wells Avenue has great bones, and we are excited to not only double the size of the building, but also preserve a portion of the existing space which holds a great amount of history,” said Jay Dacey, president of Integrated Builders.
