Island Creek Oysters Duxbury, MA

Size: 12 acres; 60,000 GSF of existing buildings

Zapalac Advisors is working with Island Creek Oysters (ICO), a dynamic Massachusetts-based company to plan the expansion of its operations. A high growth company from both a revenue and employee count perspective, Island Creek Oysters seeks to enhance both operational efficiency and its consumer facing elements. Even before final site selection was complete, Zapalac Advisors was hired to analyze ICO’s programmatic needs and advise on how the company can be further strengthened through site, building and visitor experience design. The full master plan examines Island Creek Oysters’ multiple roles, including as an important innovator in one of New England’s traditional industries and the American food scene. Research on the social, economic and environmental history of Duxbury, as well as the diverse products that ICO grows and sells, is informing visitor experience strategies. Community input is being sought through a number of workshop and public engagement activities.
