Successful Renovation to World Headquarters Leads to Repeat Partnership
5/7/2010, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, Inc., one of New England’s leading construction management firms specializing in world-class pre-construction services and challenging construction projects, has expanded its impressive corporate portfolio to include Converse World Headquarters.
J. Calnan & Associates was first hired by Converse in August 2009 to overhaul and expand its world headquarters in North Andover, MA. Working collaboratively with Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype, Inc., Sebesta Blomberg & Struble Engineering, the team transformed 42,000 SF of the building’s interior by creating a work-friendly environment that is reflective of the Converse brand. Highlights include a new mezzanine that expanded the usable space and a new library area which included a 15′ x 22′ skylight that provides natural lighting to the interior of the building. Extensive interior glazing walls were installed in a grid pattern with a patchwork of different types of glass panels to provide the feel of a well-seasoned warehouse. The build-out also included a Mock Retail area and cutting-edge conferencing center.
Its successful completion has lead to several additional projects for “America’s Original Sports Company”™ including the renovation of their current Executive Office, Support Staff and Boardrooms.
Project Executive, Stephen Robak says: “The Converse relationship is a testament to the way we do business at J. Calnan & Associates. By providing our exceptional service and delivering on our promises, clients such as Converse continue to turn to us with their upcoming projects. We look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship with the entire Converse team.”
