WALTHAM, Mass.– Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., announced that it completed a 9,400-square-foot office renovation for Citizens Disability at 1075 Main Street in Waltham.
Citizens Disability had two offices in the building and wanted to consolidate its operations to a single suite on the fourth floor. The move was made to help the advocacy group boost collaboration, communication and teamwork. Citizens Disability works with people who are disabled and unable to work, to get them the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits to which they may be entitled.
Vantage Builders completed internal demolition to reconfigure the space from the previous tenant’s layout. Vantage built a 14-person conference room with state-of-the art A-V equipment to accommodate team meetings, as well as meetings with clients and other social agencies. A new 15-person training center will enable Citizens Disability to provide classes for its staff on topics including the latest technology trends, government regulations and SSDI application procedures.
The project also included new flooring, drywall, paint, and ceilings, as well as new doors and frames. Since the project was completed in an active office environment, the Vantage team conducted its work as quietly as possible, to reduce the impact on Citizens Disability.
“Citizens Disability does a lot of great work to help many people in the community and we were pleased to work with them on the renovation,” said John Connor, principal, Vantage Builders. “A new office configuration can make a dramatic improvement on team efficiency and effectiveness, which we’ve seen in many client projects.”
The building is owned and managed by The Davis Companies.
