WALTHAM, MA – Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., announced that the firm completed major renovation and upgrade work at 300 Apollo Drive in Chelmsford, on behalf of Tritower Financial Group.
Projects in the 296,158 square foot, Class A office building include renovations to the lobby and common areas, a new game room, new 75-person conference room, new office for property management and upgrades to the cafeteria. The improvements are intended to help Tritower Financial Group attract new tenants to the three-story building.
“When Tritower acquired 300 Apollo Drive in 2014, we envisioned its potential as becoming the premier building in the market,” said Todd Twombly, Director of Asset Management, Tritower Financial Group. “We embarked on a capital campaign to improve the common areas and add the level of amenities that tenants look for in a high-quality building.”
Vantage modernized the lobby area to welcome guests and tenants to the LEED Silver-certified and WiredScore Silver-certified building. New furniture, wall coverings and dark stain on the wood finishes provide a more contemporary feel, as do the stainless steel toe kicks beneath the lobby benches. Dramatic pendant lights, more than 50 inches in diameter, hang from 12-foot lengths of aircraft cables.
To help create a more fun atmosphere and to provide a recreation space for tenants, a new game room was added. Located off the renovated cafeteria, the game room rivals an old-school arcade, featuring classic games like Big Buck Hunter and Golden Tee, as well as foosball, bubble hockey and pop-a-shot basketball. A large-screen TV completes the room.
The project also included millwork and new paint in the building’s cafeteria. Finally, new carpeting, paint and graphics were added to all the common corridors.
“Vantage Builders did excellent work on this project, as well as on the fit-up work they have done for some of our tenants,” said Twombly.
Tenants at 300 Apollo Drive include Aspect Software, Axis Communications, HNTB Corporation, and MRV Communications. The building currently has 80,000 square feet available.
