Posted by Siena Construction

The office-to-lab conversion trend continues throughout greater Boston. Siena Construction has completed the initial phase of a transformation at 535-545 Boylston Street, a multi-tenant high rise in Boston’s iconic Back Bay neighborhood.

The 14,000 square foot tenant fit-out includes office-to-lab conversion, office upgrades, rooftop work, and relocation of existing electrical services. New shaft work provided MEP infrastructure to the 4th floor buildout, and to future labs on the 13th floor. Rooftop work included installation of a new chiller, structural steel, and a temporary generator.

Our team worked closely with Brickman Real Estate LLC and Lincoln Property Company to coordinate work in the building and within the active, congested neighborhood. Design plans were created by Analogue Studio, with engineering by Genesis AEC and Canton Design Consultants. Siena’s project management team included Anthony Di CarloMichael Morelli, and Karl Halpin.
