Cambridge, MA JM Electrical Company, Inc. completed project operations at 60 Binney St., a 10-story, 541,000 s/f multi-use development on Huntington Ave. in Kendall Sq. The company installed a complete temperature control system in the building’s office space as well as controls in its laboratory spaces.
Developed by Alexandria Real Estate Equities and designed by Spagnolo Gisness & Associates, the Class A lab and office building will house the new headquarters for both Genzyme Corp., which will be occupying 251,000 s/f, and Bluebird Bio, which will be occupying 253,000 s/f.
“The Kendall Square area certainly sets high standards for sustainability, and 60 Binney, being designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, is yet another example of that standard,” said Paul Guarracino, president at JM Electrical. “The office and lab control systems designed by a leader in Building Automation Systems which we installed will ensure energy efficiency throughout the development, while also saving on energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.”
The ground floor will contain retail opportunities. Other amenities include an underground parking garage with car-share service and on-site bike parking and shower facilities for bike commuters. The building has convenient access to both Green and Red line MBTA stops, as well as EZRide shuttle service.
JM’s team of four electricians worked throughout the multi-month duration of the project to ensure the project was completed on time and on budget.
