Elaine was hired to provide construction management services for NBBJ/Chan Krieger’s relocation and fit-out at One Beacon Street, Boston. Having recently finalized the merger of these two architectural firms, a need for expanded space that represents the culture and brand of the new company, was a driving force behind the move. Located on the building’s fifth floor, the 13,834 SF fit-out will present a number of challenges, including a fast-track 9 week schedule.

Elaine worked collaboratively with the design team to identify, and define materials, develop early release packages for lighting, carpeting, mechanical equipment, and doors, and evaluated dozens of options to provide an optimal space for their available budget. This open studio environment accommodates 70 employees, offers three conference spaces, private “huddle rooms”, a coffee bar, and project gallery.
