CTA Construction worked closely with the Town of Wakefield and Helene Karl Associates to provide demolition of the existing 15,000 square foot building and construction of a new 30,000 square feet state of the art facility. The new building provides the Wakefield Gas and Light Department employees with spacious offices, open administrative areas, a large conference, training room, large reception area, and kitchen and dining facilities. The building also contains vehicle maintenance and storage space.

The entire project was constructed around an active gas substation that services the entire Town of Wakefield. This added an additional challenge as the project site was already tight and located immediately adjacent to Wakefield’s Lake Quannapowitt.
