InterGen

Diversified Project Management completed the renovation and relocation of InterGen, a leading global power generation firm with power plants on four continents, into its new headquarters at 30 Corporate Drive in Burlington, MA.  DPM provided InterGen with comprehensive project management oversight, beginning with support throughout the site selection, due diligence and lease evaluation phases to ensure that the new facility would meet its growth and production needs, while exemplifying its sustainability mission. Also included was the engagement of the design and construction teams, along with other specialty consultants, evaluation of cost estimates and review of all programming, design and construction documents as well as FF&E and move management services.

InterGen’s new location houses nearly 100 employees and consists of approximately 35,000 square feet of space.  Features include a data center, full service kitchen and multiple state-of-the-art conference spaces complete with video conferencing, to facilitate its global operations & communications. 

 To demonstrate their commitment to sustainable practices and corporate responsibility InterGen chose to pursue LEED certification for their new offices. The space, including all equipment and finishes will meet or exceed the rigorous requirements of the USGBC for their pending LEED CI Certification.  This certification will be made possible by a collaborative team effort and several measures employed during the design and construction phases.  Some of these measures include: extensive natural daylighting; low emitting, low, or non-toxic adhesives, sealants, insulation and paints; high recycled content and locally sourced materials and high-efficiency lighting and HVAC equipment with increased ventilation.  An aggressive Indoor Air Quality and Waste Management program was implemented during construction limiting dust, toxins and particulates from bonding to permanently installed absorptive materials and to document environmentally responsible debris disposal.  Additionally, InterGen elected to pursue enhanced commissioning (a LEED credit) to ensure efficient operation of its energy related systems and ultimately reduce operations and maintenance costs.  

“It has been a privilege to work with InterGen again, helping them to create a first-class work environment for their staff while incorporating environmentally responsible design elements,” said Bob Keeley, President of Diversified Project Management.  DPM partnered with InterGen and Visnick & Caulfield in 2002 to deliver the first LEED Silver project in the state of Massachusetts. 

“I wasn’t with InterGen during DPM’s initial engagement in 2002 but was well aware of the project’s success. It was without question to bring them on board for a second time and we had no regrets. Their team of professionals listened to our needs and brought us comprehensive research to help us make informed decisions regarding nearly every aspect of the project. We could not have done it without them.”
