WALTHAM, MA– Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., announced that it completed the build-out of the first New England location of Breakout Games, a leading provider of “escape room” entertainment, at 100 TradeCenter in Woburn.
At the new location, Breakout Games offers four scenarios: the Kidnapping, Museum Heist, Operation: Casino and Hostage. All take place within the 2,500-square-foot area renovated by Vantage Builders, following plans by architects Form + Place.
“The Vantage Builders team was great to work with,” said Brad Greenman, Operation Expansion Team Leader, Breakout Games. “We assigned them a fairly aggressive deadline, because we were intent on opening on schedule. And even with a number of design changes throughout the process, they were able to deliver on time.”
The Breakout Games project included work in the lobby and each scenario room. The layout required interior demolition of the existing space, which was previously used for corporate offices.
In order to create the proper setting and support the plot of each meticulously planned scenario, the rooms called for different work. Vantage removed glass partitions and reconfigured a conference room and a few offices for the Museum Heist and Operation: Casino rooms. The flooring was removed to leave bare concrete in the Hostage room, while new carpeting and metallic gold paint were added to Operation: Casino. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring was installed in the Museum Heist room and lobby.
The project required significant electrical work. Power was added to each room to support the newly installed cameras, lighting and high-end audio-visual equipment. Additionally, strobe lights were added to the… well, you’ll need to go to Breakout Game to find out.
“Breakout Games is such a creative concept and they have a terrific entrepreneurial spirit, which we appreciate,” said John Connor, principal, Vantage Builders. “This project was part retail, part office, and part theater. I should point out that while we built out the location, we were not involved is setting up the scenarios. So don’t call us for clues!”
100 TradeCenter, which is located at 100 Sylvan Road, is owned by Cummings Properties.
