Merritt Construction Services, a division of Merritt Properties, is having an active fourth quarter. In a year marked by slow construction starts, the construction division of one of the region’s largest developers has landed two new projects.
Mars Supermarkets has chosen Merritt Construction Services to handle construction on its new headquarters at 9627 Philadelphia Road in Rosedale. With a planned move-in date of Jan. 15, 2010, the 30,000-square-foot Mars office building is on an extremely aggressive schedule. Merritt was selected for the project in mid-November and has begun converting the one-story flex space into offices, a training facility and meeting space.
Mars has 16 grocery stores in Maryland and nearly 1,700 employees. The company is currently headquartered at 3401 E. Federal Street in Baltimore.
The second project, for client Ridge Engineering, is a 15,000-square-foot addition to Ridge’s headquarters at 3897 Hampstead Mexico Road in Hampstead. Ridge, which handles large-scale precision machining and sheet metal fabrication, is currently housed in a 67,500-square-foot facility.
Phase I, which is already underway, is a 13,000-square-foot manufacturing floor addition with a mezzanine. Phase II, which will connect the manufacturing floor to new office space and add a new two-story entrance, is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2010.
