New Construction

Project Overview

  • Upgraded site utilities and redundant lifelines while ensuring uninterrupted service to MathWorks’ corporate data center
  • Large-scale demolition and new construction in close proximity to commercial neighbors and Lake Cochituate
  • Collaborative pre-construction process to determine the best design scheme at the right price within the required timeframe

MathWorks embarked on the creation of a new multi-building campus on its 31-acre site in Natick to support their growing employee population. Following the construction of a new, 190,000 sq. ft. 569-space parking garage, built to accommodate the three new campus buildings, MathWorks selected Consigli to continue our presence on-site and act as the construction manager for the new campus. The Lakeside Campus features collaborative office and meeting spaces; a fitness center; wellness and recreation space; a full-service kitchen and cafeteria; outdoor social spaces; a green roof; and a level-4 data center. The buildings boast high-end finishes and technology to support this innovative organization. Sustainable elements include a greywater harvesting system and photovoltaic panels.

The project also consisted of extensive utility upgrades and demolition of two of the three existing buildings, while the MathWorks’ data center and employees occupied the remaining building—LS1. This building was renovated to meet temporary needs for the duration of the project and was demolished upon completion. This complex process required multiple phases and system shutdowns, all while MathWorks’ non-negotiable redundant power systems were preserved.
