BRAINTREE and NORWELL, MA, ISSUED SEPTEMBER 23, 2014…Acella Construction Corporation (, a construction management firm serving the region for more than a decade, recently completed renovation work for Thayer Academy, a private, co-educational, college preparatory day school located in Braintree.  This was the second time Thayer Academy selected Acella Construction for a summer renovation project.

Site work on the undertaking was led by Vice President of Operations Anthony Dirubbo and was completed last month.  The project focused on the Cahall Locker Rooms and Glover Lecture Hall.  In the Cahall Locker Rooms, work revolved around updating the existing boys’ and girls’ locker rooms with better and more efficient showers and bathrooms.  The lighting and flooring were also upgraded, and ductwork was replaced. The project culminated with rebalancing the systems to ensure that all aspects of the renovations are performing quietly and efficiently.

In Glover Hall, new acoustic panels, lighting, flooring and seating were installed in the existing lecture hall.  The engineering rooms were remodeled with new millwork, ceilings, lights, and flooring.  New office space for the staff was also created.

Dave Dirubbo, president of Acella Construction, said, “Given our track record of working with educational institutions, we understood the needs and requirements of Thayer Academy’s recent project.  We came in quickly and completed the necessary work with minimal disruption and while maintaining the level of quality we are known for before the start of the new school year.

“We were happy to partner with Thayer Academy once again on these impressive upgrades,” added Dirubbo.

          Working with Acella was great. They were always available to answer my questions and they kept me in the loop every step of the way. They were very flexible and patient and worked around our working schedule – sometimes coming in very early in the morning. Their work turned out wonderfully and they even painted a large wall that was not part of the scope to get the whole space looking shiny and new. This was my first renovation project and they made me look good! I would highly recommend Acella.
