Lowell, MA – An interior office renovation is currently under way for The Circle Home, Inc., a home healthcare and hospice provider and an affiliate of Circle Health. The 17,774sf space is located at 847 Rogers Street in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Circle Home, formerly the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Lowell, will consolidate its departments and offices in the new facility. The agency’s private duty company, Commonwealth Nursing Services, will also be housed in the new space that features conference rooms, classrooms, and a training room that resembles a home care setting.
One of the interior design challenges was to create ample work space for traveling employees, while incorporating them into the everyday workflow of in-house staff.
Working closely with Rachel Chaddock, Circle Home executive director, Maugel created a design that fosters communication and collaboration and provides an inviting, well-organized environment.
Circle Home’s services require the collection and maintenance of highly sensitive documents.
Security was a crucial factor in the design and flow of the space. Maugel introduced a central entrance with a circulation pattern that allowed visitors and employees to navigate easily to their destinations, without compromising privacy.
Maugel will also be designing a new entry addition and upgrading the common areas of the 55,000sf office building, which is currently home to the Fresenius Medical Care Dialysis Center.
The design will create a new entry vestibule addition, a more inviting internal lobby area, and upgrade the common area elevator and finishes.
Maugel Architects is working closely Pinnacle Construction Company and the owner representative, Equity Alliance, LLC.
The project is expected to be completed by late spring of this year.
