Dacon Corporation and Quality Beverage, L.P., a distributor of Anheuser-Busch products, recently broke ground for an office renovation to its Headquarters Facility in Taunton, MA. The project includes interior renovations to its two-story Office Area, a new Hospitality Suite, a new Pallet Jack Room, and a new Point-of-Sale (P.O.S.) Facility of 9,000 SF that will abut the current maintenance facility. This new construction will reflect the strong quality image of premium brand products for Quality Beverage.
The office renovations will include approximately 18,000 SF on the first and second floors of the existing building. Dacon will phase this portion of the project to allow Quality Beverage to operate during construction. The new Hospitality Suite will include a new separate entrance, new elevator to service the entire headquarters facility, new bar, tasting, and entertainment area. The facility for the POS expansion is an insulated metal wall panel system that matches the exiting building panels, over a conventional steel frame. Work includes a new exterior façade, new main entry, and handicap areas, new roof, parking lot and landscaping. Dacon is working closely with Quality Beverage’s management team as well as the owner’s representative for the project, David S. Ehrhardt, AIA, of Dario Designs, Inc.
Ground was broken mid-July with completion expected in the spring of 2017. This is the second project by Dacon for Quality Beverage. The first, completed in June, was a renovation of Quality Beverage’s 80,000 SF Auburn, MA distribution center. Work included a new exterior façade, new office space, new roof, parking and landscaping.
