Saugus, MA – Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa recently opened at 190 Walnut St. in Saugus. Vantage. Builders, Inc. of Waltham completed the build-out of the two-story, 15,500sf building.
The build-out required significant work to the vacant warehouse. A restack of the building, was performed beginning with a complete demolition of the interior. A second floor was added with a new elevator and pit, as well as a staircase.
Vantage followed designs from Pendleton Sears Architects, who have worked on other Red Dog locations. The new site has kennels and grooming areas for both dogs and cats, outdoor dog runs, and activity areas inside. A break room provides a location for staff.
Building systems work was critical to the project. The air at Red Dog is completely replaced every 10 minutes via an air circulation system, reducing the chances of bacteria, germs, or odors in the resort. Vantage also installed new plumbing, a sump pump, HVAC, and a fire alarm system. All surfaces feature easy-to-clean finishes.
