Acella Construction Managers Completes Cummaquid Golf Club Project

NORWELL and YARMOUTH PORT, MA, ISSUED AUGUST 19, 2015… Acella Construction Corporation, a construction management firm serving the region for more than a decade, recently announced completion of a new, state-of-the-art clubhouse for Cummaquid Golf Club.  Scott Brash served as project manager for the $4.5 million, 14,200-square-foot project for Acella.  Cotuit Bay Design, LLC served as the architect. 

Clubhouse construction included a formal dining room overlooking the golf course, grill-style lounge and restaurant, locker rooms, pro shop, 70-foot covered porch for outdoor dining, a board room, office, and storage rooms.  The project also included extensive sitework such as utility upgrades, septic and landscaping. 

Interior finishes include two-way field stone gas fireplace separating the dining room and lounge, extensive millwork and coffered ceilings, chandeliers, pendants above the bar on track, wall sconces, and exterior lighting on outdoor posts. 

John Bowes, chair of the building committee for Cummaquid Golf Club, said, “We chose the worst year weather-wise to undertake this task [but]….The Acella team led by Scott Brash, the project manager, and with several huge time-savings ideas by Anthony Dirubbo, allowed us to complete our 14,200-square-foot building on time.” 

Dave Dirubbo, president of Acella, said, “This project for the members of Cummaquid is a great example of a design-build collaboration that resulted in a beautiful, high quality building that met both high expectations for aesthetics while working within a realistic budget that would not place too much of a burden on the membership.  The project had been discussed for five or six years, and the previous clubhouse, built in 1945, could not be rehabbed because it did not meet current building codes and handicap access requirements. 

“Despite many challenges and difficult winter conditions, the new structure now takes advantage of the landscape – and golfers and diners are able to enjoy the view of the 18th fairway from the new lounge, dining room and outdoor dining deck,” Dirubbo continued.  “We are glad we could help make this dream a reality for the Cummaquid Golf Club community.”

Working with Acella is working with a world-class team. They approach projects with complete professionalism, all the while making the team feel like family. Dave is always available and accessible. Senior Project Manager, Ryan Klebes, ensures the project is a collaborative effort and the site team is top notch. Our office always looks forward to working with Acella.
