BOSTON – Margulies Perruzzi announced that the project team for PTC’s new global headquarters has been recognized as a gold-level winner of the Building Design + Construction (BD+C) Magazine 2019 Building Team Awards.
The project team, led by Margulies Perruzzi, the Boston office of Cresa, the world’s largest occupier-focused commercial real estate firm and project manager for the project, and Gilbane Building Company, one of the largest construction management firms in the country, completed the interior fit-out of a new 250,000 SF global headquarters at 121 Seaport Boulevard in Boston for PTC, a global provider of award-winning, market-proven solutions that enable industrial companies to differentiate their products and services, improve operational excellence, and increase workforce productivity.
The annual BD+C Building Team Awards recognize newly built projects that best exemplify the collaboration between owner, architect, engineer, and contractor to produce buildings that exhibit architectural and construction excellence. Submissions are judged based on the quality and excellence of the design, engineering, and construction as well as how the full project team and client worked together to overcome challenges that resulted in the success of the project. PTC’s global headquarters was one of only five Gold winners, and one of 14 projects, to be honored with a Building Team Award this year.
A BD+C award judge noted that “specificity to place and function is highly important and reflected in this project, and the inclusion of emerging sensor technology and analytics is a unique way to connect form and function. The space reflects the client, and the resulting quality reflects the integrated team approach.” Another judge asserted that “this office fit-out includes the most original designs among the submissions judged.”
PTC’s new technology-rich headquarters is a key part of the company’s business transformation, enhancing PTC’s profile and serving as a premier destination for PTC’s customers, and partners to experience PTC’s technology.
“We believe a successful design is one that not only satisfies a company’s space needs, but also creates experiences that change the way work is done. The design of PTC’s new headquarters is truly transformational in every way,” said Janet Morra, AIA, LEED AP, principal and partner at Margulies Perruzzi. “We are proud to have our efforts recognized with this BD+C Building Team Award.”
