Project Overview

  • Off-hours work to minimize disruptions to other building tenants
  • The sixth-floor location had virtually no material laydown and could only be accessed via a pedestrian elevator
  • High-end, custom finishes including furniture, flooring and millwork

Blue Haven Initiative is an international investment management firm focused on social and environmental performance, originally based in New York City. The firm sought new opportunities and the cultural fit of Harvard Square and elected to move their headquarters to Cambridge, where we managed the fit-out of 2,800 sq. ft. of open-concept office space.

With the intention of using the space for business as well as client entertainment, the open, airy and bright top floor location features high-end, custom millwork and reclaimed wood flooring—which was installed by our in-house craftsmen—and movable furniture options. In addition, we coordinated with a specialty vendor to install pieces from Blue Haven’s private art collection. The finished space features seven private offices—one of which is highly sound-proofed and includes an interactive 12 monitor technology wall and high-end audio system—five work stations, two conference rooms, a lounge and a small kitchen.
