Boston – Margulies Perruzzi (MP) announced that it has completed the new headquarters for Buildium, a 38,000sf office, located at 3 Center Plaza in Downtown Boston that features a dynamic, technology-rich workspace that promotes collaboration among Buildium’s 200+ employees (with room to add 100 more).
MP provided space planning and interior design services for the fast-tracked interior design and fit-out for the rapidly growing property management software company.
The open-concept office design locates workstations on the perimeter and offers a variety of technology-enabled meeting rooms, huddle areas, and collaboration spaces at the core. The design balances focused workspace with collaboration areas including a meeting room with unique stadium seating. Open ceilings maximize the daylight from the tall perimeter windows, allowing light to permeate throughout the open office.
A centrally located café, called the “back porch,” offers casual seating and atmosphere that provides an informal space for staff to work, meet, and socialize, and additionally functions as a town hall meeting space.
MP designed a palette that distinctly emphasizes the core as an intimate meeting space, while embodying Buildium’s brand and culture through pops of brand colors, environmental graphics, and design elements that were heavily influenced by its logo and website.
Completed on an accelerated project schedule, MP performed full design, from schematic through construction documents, in just eight weeks, about half the time as a standard project of this scale.
Elaine Construction provided turnkey construction management services for the Buildium project.
“The move to a new headquarters aligns with our long-term plans for growth and expansion, and provides us with a vibrant office environment for every work function,” said Mary Dempsey, operations supervisor at Buildium. “From the start of this accelerated project, MP had our best interests in mind and enabled us to make quick decisions, with realistic outcomes, to address our space needs, technology requirements, and collaborative workstyle. MP created a new headquarters beyond our wildest dreams, and our employees were speechless on day one in the new space. We couldn’t be happier.”
