J. Calnan & Associates, Northstar Project & Real Estate Services, Packard Design and WB Engineering complete global headquarters for Kronos

By | News | No Comments

Lowell, MA J. Calnan & Associates (JC&A), Northstar Project and Real Estate Services, Packard Design and WB Engineers recently completed the global headquarters for Kronos, one of the world’s largest enterprise software companies, generating more than $1 billion in annual revenue with more than 30,000 customers – including half of the Fortune 1000 – using Kronos workforce solutions across more than 100 countries. Kronos recently relocated its headquarters from a three-building campus in Chelmsford – where it called home since 2000 – to its new space, uniting nearly 1,500 Massachusetts-based Kronites under one roof across more than 500,000 s/f.

Kronos now occupies 16 floors – including the entire first tower, dubbed the Kronos Tower – in what will total a $68 million renovation of the former home of Wang Laboratories.

Working collaboratively with Kronos, JC&A, Northstar, Packard Design and WB Engineers, created a high-performance workplace of the future to inspire collaboration and innovation with hundreds of meeting rooms and open scrum spaces; technology; separate user experience (UX) and hardware labs; a customer community center; and a 30,000 s/f amenities floor called The Hub, featuring a full-service barista, an IT bar for helpdesk support, an indoor park, library, and gaming area – all overlooking an outdoor Kronos-branded sports court.

Other key partners for this project included: Anchor Line Partners, Delorey Contract Interiors, Environments at Work/Haworth Inc., and Cushman & Wakefield.

“JC&A is tremendously proud to be part of the Kronos story and look forward to watching them flourish in their new home.  This truly was a team effort and we’re fortunate to work alongside some of the best partners in the industry,” said Stephen Robak, executive vice president/partner, with JC&A.

Vince Devlin, chief procurement officer at Kronos said of the team, “Trust, transparency and a work ethic that put the client first” were the keys to the success of the project.

Aron Ain, CEO, Kronos said of their new global headquarters, “Our new home stands as a symbol of Kronite dedication, ingenuity, innovation, and caring for our customers. Without our terrific team members, none of this is possible. On our 40th anniversary, we officially open the doors to a global headquarters befitting of the Kronos culture, the company we’ve become, and the inspiring people who call Kronos home.”

TriNetX Moves to Expanded Headquarters in Cambridge

By | News | No Comments

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — TriNetX, the global health research network for healthcare organizations, biopharmaceutical companies, and Contract Research Organizations (CROs), announced a move into their new, expanded headquarters in Cambridge to accommodate their rapidly growing business. The state of the art space promotes improved collaboration among the TriNetX team members and enhances TriNetX’s ability to service its clients and partners.

The yearlong project involved moving from 8,200 square feet to a 20,000 square foot office space, upstairs in the same building at 125 Cambridgepark Drive. The TriNetX team has grown from 20 to 75 and the company had outgrown its existing space.

“We wanted to stay in Cambridge because of the proximity to our clients and partners, and it allows us to retain our talented group of employees,” said Chris Fraser, Vice President, Finance & Administration who headed the relocation project. “It was equally important that the new space reflected our personality and aligned with our corporate values around teamwork, creativity and wellness.”

The new space features an open office concept, but also includes numerous huddle rooms, phone rooms, conference rooms, and a library—all fully equipped with the latest in audio/video collaboration tools. Each workstation features a sit-to-stand option desk. The focal point of the new headquarters is a centrally located café that provides a convenient area for employees to interact out of the direct workspace.

A key feature of the new space is the Network Operations Center (NOC). This is a wall of large screen displays that monitor a variety of activities including the health of the network, real-time visibility to the TriNetX platform, and the operating status of the TriNetX appliances located at healthcare organizations all over the world.

“This allows us to keep a close eye on our network and systems,” said Fraser. “It also helps us monitor our devices in the field to make sure they are operating properly. We can keep an eye on client activity so we are better prepared to respond to the needs of our clients and partners.”

TriNetX leveraged a team of vendors to help facilitate the move including Freudenheim Partners Real Estate, STV/DPM for project management, IA Interior Architects to help design the space, J. Calnan & Associates to build out the new offices, and Creative Office Pavilion to supply all the furniture and workstations.
