Acella Construction Completes Expansion of South Coastal Animal Health

PEMBROKE and WEYMOUTH, MA, ISSUED FEBRUARY 21, 2020… Acella Construction Corporation (, a leader in construction management throughout greater Boston, announces completion of an expansion project for South Coastal Animal Health in Weymouth, Massachusetts.

The 1,500 square foot ground up addition to the existing animal health care facility, located at 1389 Main Street in Weymouth, includes four new examination rooms and an expanded treatment area to allow the staff at South Coastal Animal Health to treat multiple patients simultaneously. The project encompassed a fire sprinkler retrofit into the existing building to accommodate the new overall footage, per code requirements. The facility’s parking lot was also expanded to satisfy patients’ request for additional spaces.

South Coastal Animal Health remained open and operational throughout the entire construction process, thanks to Acella Construction’s experience and skill with working in occupied environments.

Medcom Architectural Group, LLC headquartered in Bourne, served as architect for the $800,000 construction project. Merrill Associates, Inc. of Plymouth was the civil engineering firm of record and Griffith & Vary, Inc. of Wareham provided consulting engineering services.

South Coastal Animal Health opened its doors in July of 2006, is privately owned and operated and prides itself on being a state-of-the-art veterinary practice with a personal touch.

“It was a pleasure to again partner with South Coastal Animal Health and help expand a facility that has served so many pets and their families for 14 years,” said Ryan LaVangie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Acella Construction Corporation, noting that Acella oversaw ground up construction of the facility’s original 7,900 square foot building in 2009.

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.
