Autodesk recently completed tenant improvements at their new headquarters building on the East Coast. The company retained the services of KlingStubbins and Tocci Building Companies to design and build the interior to a LEED Platinum level of certification using LEED-CI.  The result is modern office structure with abundant natural light and, of course, plenty of style.  My favorite design element is the custom, prefabricated millwork explained in the YouTube video below.

For the tenant improvements, the architect, owner, and builder collaborated through integrated project delivery (IPD) using building information modeling (BIM) and Autodesk software, such as Navisworks, Revit Architecture, Revit MEP, and Ecotect.

The 65,000 square foot building was designed on a tight schedule using Autodesk software, which enabled the team to decide on various improvements and learn how such decisions affected LEED criteria.  The design and build teams were also able to pinpoint redundancies and eliminate waste and extra spending through IPD.  The building is located at 1560 Trapelo Road in Waltham, Massachusetts.  I'm sure we'll see more of this project in the coming months …
