Hanover, MA Acella Construction Corp., a leader in construction management throughout greater Boston, has completed Flanders Field, located within Merchant Row at 2055 Washington St. The building owner of record is FP Giglio Properties, based in Braintree, Mass.
The build-out encompassed a large dining area, oval-shaped bar with the capacity to seat 60 people and a commercial kitchen, to total 8,500 s/f. In addition, Acella constructed a 2,700 s/f steel mezzanine to house walk-in beer coolers, an office and storage area.
The total 11,200 s/f restaurant was built out to full completion within a new cold shell designed by studio TROIKA in Boston. Acella’s scope of work included ambient lighting throughout, a dumbwaiter elevator system and custom stained and polished concrete. All new utilities were added, requiring underground plumbing, gas and electrical lines. Acella also constructed a new entryway to the building shell for direct flow to a hostess station.
The Acella team, working with architect DJSA Architects of Raynham, Mass. and the engineering firm Base Design Group of Portland, Maine completed the project in a timely fashion while meeting the challenges incurred by the coronavirus pandemic.
Flanders Field is known for its farm-fresh locally sourced in-house prepared food with a Northern European and American influence. It has also made a name for itself for offering 100 individual beer draught lines, with each beer properly poured into a glass specific to that brew. The establishment prides itself on offering the freshest beer available and for not tapping a keg unless it meets Flanders Fields’ strict standards for freshness.
“It was a pleasure to work on this project and provide innovative design solutions to successfully bring the client’s vision to reality,” said Ryan LaVangie, vice president of sales & marketing for Acella Construction. “This aesthetically attractive and highly functional venue will serve the Flanders Field team and its customers well for many years to come.”
