Cambridge, MA Siena Construction has completed an interior tenant renovation project for Appian Way Energy Partners, an energy trading company participating in the wholesale electricity market. Siena renovated Appian Way’s 4,476 s/f offices across two floors of a four-story historic building at 25 Mount Auburn St. in the iconic Harvard Sq. neighborhood.
Siena followed design plans by Bergmeyer Associates, which called for demolition to the existing space on the building’s 3rd and 4th floors, and creation of a 24-seat trading room, private phone rooms, a small and large conference room, two active team workrooms, a lounge, and an open meeting zone with kitchen.
The twelve-week on-site construction schedule involved demolition, extensive finish carpentry, HVAC and electrical upgrades to the building, as well as drywall installation, acoustical ceilings, carpet and resilient flooring, painting, plumbing, sprinklers, tel-data upgrades, and furniture installation.
Siena collaborated closely with Bergmeyer, FISKAA Engineering, as well as the ownership team from Appian Way in order to complete the project safely given pandemic challenges, as well as working in an occupied building and in a congested neighborhood with heavy traffic. The two-floor office houses Appian Way’s energy trading professionals who come from diverse backgrounds that include economic and public policy, operations research, and electrical engineering.
