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.

I cannot emphasize enough how great it was to work with Corderman & Company. They were extremely professional and completed the job on time and on budget...the project ran so seamlessly and smoothly. Great team from the project managers, to the superintendent, to the subs and laborers. Really made for an easy project!
