Providing Construction Management/General Contracting services, Columbia completed a multi-phase fit-out of athenahealth's Corporate Headquarters in Watertown, MA, in the Arsenal on the Charles office complex, also known as the Watertown Arsenal.

Phase I of this project entailed the fit-out of 110,000 sf of space in Building 311, the former Artillery Hall, the largest building on the site.  Athenahealth’s space in this building is highlighted by Athena Street, a communication corridor with several neighborhoods of both open plan and private offices.  Other areas include conference rooms, technology and help labs, cafes, team rooms, and quiet rooms.  A new 1,200 sf data center was also constructed, with 4-LAN rooms. 

For Phase II, Columbia fit-out a stand-alone 22,000 sf flagship building across the street from Phase I.  This building houses the company’s executives, the marketing and legal departments, as well as the main reception, cafeteria, conference and training areas.  Multiple bleacher-type communication stairways were constructed, as well as a new mezzanine to serve as the conference area.
