Corderman & Company Completes Engie's New Boston Offices at 9 Channel Center
Construction is now complete on ENGIE’s new expanded Boston office at 9 Channel Center Street in Boston. ENGIE has moved into 21,000 square feet of first class office space on two floors of the modern mixed-use building in the city’s historic and vibrant Channel Center neighborhood. Corderman & Company provided construction management services on the project.
The $3.2 million construction program, in collaboration with global design firm Gensler’s Houston and Boston offices, is a mix of open workspace, private offices, conference rooms, work lounges, wellness rooms, cafes, huddle areas, a private phone booth, and shower room in an inspiring contemporary environment.
Staying true to the warehouse-industrial architecture at 9 Channel Center, ENGIE’s offices include exposed brick and beam construction throughout. Colorful branded moments, statement lighting, and modern furniture provide a dynamic contrast. Each floor was designed with three zones to accommodate employee collaboration and individual work throughout the day. Pops of color were infused into the cafes and teaming zones. The central teaming area and perimeter individual workstations were designed to facilitate concentration and focus.
“ENGIE’s new Boston office is an agile work environment embracing employee engagement reflecting their forward-thinking,” said Corderman & Company Senior Project Manager Kevin Hegarty. “9 Channel Center is the perfect place for them to grow and thrive.”
Owner/developer Berkeley Investments’ 9 Channel Center is part of their far-reaching program to enhance value through adaptive reuse throughout Channel Center. The building has been infused with new technology and a modern design aesthetic while maintaining its brick and beam ambiance. It is positioned at the cross-section of South Boston, Fort Point, and the Seaport District. Other tenants in the building include Corderman & Company, and Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype, Inc. The office and retail leasing agent is CBRE.
The new space for ENGIE is one of numerous customized and creative offices that are either complete or underway by Corderman & Company. This includes offices for: Cybereason, Catalant Technologies, Venture Lane, Neoscape, Placester, Ideo, Enzyvant,, Goulston & Storrs, and Kensington Capital. Corderman’s team on this project was comprised of: Hegarty, Project Manager Jim Tully, Superintendent Joel Ashton, Laborer Kenneth DeCampo, and Senior Estimator Cadman Corbett.
