  • Gresham Smith achieved the office design for Schneider Electric, a global energy specialist, located in Boston, Massachusetts.

    When Schneider Electric sought to create world class facilities in Nashville, Boston, Calgary and Dallas through a variety of consolidations, they called on Gresham Smith. Our goal was to create alignment between business, culture and workplace that provides an experience. Through our design, Schneider has been able to build more productive, collaborative and inspired workplaces that have led to increased employee engagement and retention.

    Boston Bound!
    We designed Schneider Electric’s Boston City hub to meet the company’s Workplace of the Future standards. Located in the heart of downtown Boston’s historic business district on the 27th floor of One Boston Place, the buildout delivers a highly efficient floor plan within approximately 16,000 usable square feet—critical for both local and international employees, who are either working full-time or traveling in and out of Boston.

    Keeping Those Views

    The 27th floor offered the unique opportunity of window walls on all four facades, providing stunning vistas of the Boston area. One of the main design drivers was to maintain the views in all directions—a challenge given Schneider Electric’s use of technology. While maintaining an abundance of natural light, our design successfully integrates the required power, data, screens and cords without sacrificing the existing panoramas.

    An Inspired Place to Work
    We incorporated modern design principles and amenities into the Boston City hub that not only help create a more inclusive workspace, but also support flexibility, innovation and an enhanced digital experience. The end result is an energizing workplace that inspires both creativity and productivity.

    Fun, Unique & Innovative
    Serving as a strong design partner, Gresham Smith is proud to provide Schneider Electric with workplace design solutions that support the organization’s employees and distinctive corporate culture. By understanding who they are and what they do, our fun, unique and innovative spaces help this global energy management leader in their mission to harness the power of the “Internet of Things” to achieve greater levels of efficiency, sustainability and energy savings.
