BOSTON – Shawmut Design and Construction announced its completion of renovations to the Rockpoint Group’s newly acquired property at 75-101 Federal Street. The scope of the project included re-imagining the lobby and reception areas, building a new second floor gym, and adding a model suite to attract potential tenants.
Shawmut’s renovations to the interior included updates to the building’s reception area, gallery, and lobby. One of the building’s most prominent new features is an oversized custom clock, designed by Humans since 1982, it is the largest of its kind in the country.
Fabricated in Sweden, the one-of-a-kind piece features 280 smaller clocks and sits above a 20-foot reception desk. The desk features a stone and transaction top, decorative stone insert, and built-in LED lighting. The team also installed new terrazzo flooring, full-height, acid-etched laminated glass panels with colored interlayer placed over the existing marble walls, and additional integrated lighting elements along walls, and art installments.
Renovations to the exterior include a new entrance, canopy, and signage. The new entry is composed of hand-patinated metal to match the existing façade. The entryway also features a laminated glass canopy on brushed stainless steel standoffs and new signage with thick steel building address lettering. Throughout construction, the fully occupied building remained operational as did the sidewalk and entrance outside of the building.
“Shawmut’s work at 75-101 Federal Street highlights what differentiates us from other companies,” said Kevin Sullivan, vice president at Shawmut Design and Construction. “Our team is professional and nimble enough to overcome the challenge of completing a project like this with little disruption to tenants and daily activity outside of the building.”
The updated building also includes a new 8,500 square-foot fitness center on the second floor, consisting of new locker rooms, a reception area, cardio platform, weight and cross training areas, and a full game room. The team also extended elevator service from the parking and lobby levels to the new gym level.
Following 75-101 Federal Street, Shawmut will begin renovations to Rockpoint Group’s 99 Summer Street. Shawmut’s Corporate Tenant and Interiors division has also completed projects for Redgate, Boston Properties, Cushman & Wakefield, and Equity Office Properties.
