The Launch at Moby Dick Brewing Co.
Newbury Street |
New Bedford, Massachusetts
Total Project Cost: $390,000

The Whaling City of New Bedford, MA is rich in history. The Moby Dick Brewing Co. embraces this as they continue to expand their business.

Moby Dick Brewing Company hired South Coast Improvement Company for a second time to assist in the expansion of the existing Moby Dick Brewing Co. The Owners acquired the adjacent, historic, building with big plans in mind. What was once home to Lorraine’s Coffee Roaster, which was established back in the 19th century has quickly been transformed into the Launch at Moby Dick Brewing Company.

The new space carries through the chic industrial vibe and restored interior of the 1927 building that once existed. Some highlights of the project included a complete renovation of existing space, full MEP including tie into the existing systems, and a seismic steel structure to the new expansion. There was hazardous waste and asbestos removal, a custom tasting bar added, and a complete exterior facelift of the historical façade. Finally, no renovation of a historic structure would be complete without reusing all the reclaimed wood from the existing space.  

Project Highlights included:

  • Hazardous Waste and Asbestos Removal
  • Custom Tasting Bar Setup and Configuration
  • Brand New Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Systems
  • Exterior Facelift of Historical Facade
  • New Municipal Utilities
