Gilbane wins Boston fit-out

Gilbane Building Company has won a contract as construction manager for the 250,000 sq ft interior fit-out of the new Boston headquarters for technology company PTC.

The project management team of commercial real estate firm Cresa will oversee the build-out and relocation to 121 Seaport Boulevard in the Seaport District, with Margulies Perruzzi Architects providing architectural and interior design services for fit-out.

To assist PTC and the design team with evaluating the most appropriate workplace management technology, the MIT Center for Real Estate (MIT/CRE) has been engaged as a research collaborator.

Bala Consulting Engineers is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering plus tele, data, and security services for PTC’s new global headquarters, in addition to serving as the core and shell engineer for the entire 121 Seaport building. The project team also includes McNamara Salvia for structural engineering and CRJA-IBI Group for landscape design of PTC’s rooftop terrace.

“We are thrilled to have such a forward-thinking project team dedicated to advancing workplace design strategies for our new global headquarters,” said Eric Snow, senior vice president, corporate marketing, PTC. “Cresa took the time to understand our needs, expectations, and concerns, and provided us with a locally sourced and innovative project team. We feel confident that these collaborative and enthusiastic design experts will deliver a vibrant headquarters, and we look forward to welcoming employees, customers, and partners from around the world to our new space.”

PTC is relocating its headquarters from Needham, Massachusetts to downtown Boston as part of a transformation of its business.

121 Seaport is a 17-story, 400,000 sq ft elliptical-shaped glass office building now under construction in Boston’s Innovation District. PTC will occupy the building’s top nine floors with direct access to the rooftop terrace from the top floor and access to a common area with outdoor deck on the third floor. A design highlight of PTC’s new headquarters includes its Customer Experience Center, an interactive showcase of PTC’s work. PTC is expected to house approximately 1,000 of the company’s 6,000 worldwide employees at 121 Seaport.

The project is expected to be complete in early 2019 and is targeting LEED Gold.
