Currently occupying several buildings on their main campus, Shire expanded their administrative operations across the street in a beautiful campus-like setting. Columbia Construction provided preconstruction and CM services for base building modifications and interior renovations to the entire 95 Hayden Avenue campus, upgraded specifically for this specialty biopharmaceutical company.

The +200,000 square foot space spans more than five levels and is designed to accommodate expected growth. Areas include a number of open and enclosed offices with meeting and conferencing facilities, kitchen and catering facilities with dining, a fitness center, as well as an executive suite. A number of centralized atrium spaces with interconnecting stairs, elevators, and bridges are also situated within the five story building.

Columbia also constructed a PV solar canopy system on the upper level of the existing parking garage as well as a 137kW ballasted roof mounted system on the office building. The new, $5 million system is expected to generate enough electrical power to offset a substantial portion of the demand in the office building. It is also a visual display of Hobbs Brook Management’s commitment to sustainability.
