1/28/2011, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, one of New England’s leading construction management firms specializing in world-class preconstruction and construction projects, recently completed the new corporate headquarters for BJ’s. Their new campus is located at 25 Research Drive in Westborough, MA.
The last major renovation to the 300,000 square foot facility, formerly occupied by National Grid, took place in the early 1990’s. The project team had just 4 months to retrofit approximately 95% of the entire building. The project consisted of the complete demolition and renovation of the existing offices & cubicles for over 1,000 employees; life safety renovations; 20,000 SF of state-of-the-art executive suites complete with a cutting-edge video conferencing board room; 11 additional video conferencing rooms; a full-service cafeteria complete with a server and kitchen; 300+ person auditorium; lighting upgrades; new carpet, paint and millwork throughout as well as folding partitions and upgrades to nearly 25 bathrooms.
The project team also included Cushman & Wakefield, tenant representation; ADD, Inc, architecture and Creative Office Pavillion, office furniture.
The team was able to overcome the challenging 14 week schedule to have BJ’s in their new corporate headquarters at the beginning of this year.
Kirk Roth, Director of Client Service for Cushman & Wakefield was thrilled with our team:
“Your team has accomplished more in 2.5 days than most, if not any of your competitors would in 2 weeks.”
He continued to say, “Your persistence, leadership, talent and ownership perspective puts you in the highest ranks of the “best and brightest” in your field. I can safely say that you have built a coveted “trust relationship” with the BJ’s core project team that will generate ongoing and future business with BJ’s, Cushman and ADD, INC.”
BJ’s is the latest addition to J. Calnan & Associates impressive corporate portfolio that includes A123, Warner Brothers, The TJX Companies, The MathWorks, Iron Mountain, EMC, iRobot, Puma and General Electric.
