One Design Center Place, Boston, MA
Design: Perkins + Will
Boston Beer Company, the second-largest craft brewery in the United States and the proud brewer of Samuel Adams, Angry Orchard and Twisted Tea, enlisted Corderman & Company to renovate and expand their Boston headquarters. In order to minimize impact on ongoing operations, the project was completed in three main phases. Phase I entailed a 10,000 SF expansion including new offices, multiple training rooms, a new IT center, open workstations with exposed-to-the-deck ceilings and a new pantry. Phase II involved the renovation of 4,000 SF of the existing reception area, mail rooms and copy rooms, all of which was redesigned to accommodate a new layout for the entrance to the space. Finally, Phase III, performed in multiple off-hour segments, consisted of all new finishes in the existing open workstation office space of 15,000 SF.
Unique Project Features:
Completed over three phases in order to minimize disruption to ongoing operations in the occupied space.
K-13 was spray-applied to the open ceiling, tailored to specific project requirements for insulation, noise reduction, durability and aesthetics.
A large folding partition was built in the conference room to create more flexibility. A Place of Assembly permit was required as a result of these occupancy-increasing alterations.
