Gilbane Building Company’s Boston Office Completes Construction of Cengage Office at Pier 4 in the Seaport District

BOSTON (STL.News) – Gilbane Building Company’s Boston office recently completed construction management services for the 117,000 square foot Cengage office at Pier 4 in the Seaport District. Cengage, a global education and technology company, relocated from Fort Point’s Channel Center to the distinctive Block L4 Tower, where its multi-floor office features a dynamic workspace designed to encourage collaboration and spontaneous interactions among its nearly 600 Boston-based employees.

“Gilbane’s commitment to a partnership approach ensured alignment on this project and the resulting space exceeded our expectations,” said Steve Gibson, senior vice president of real estate, facilities and procurement for Cengage. “Our employees are excited about the new office which facilitates collaboration and provides ample opportunity for working together in line with our culture.”

The new open floor plan features an interconnecting staircase, executive seating, meeting/conference rooms, general office space and a private outdoor terrace, featuring state-of-the art infrastructure and eco-friendly appliances and fixtures. The space is thoughtfully designed with sustainable systems and finishes, from activated lighting to bio-based products, to furniture and carpet with the lowest Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) possible.

“Cengage consistently receives recognition for its work culture and Gilbane is extremely proud to have helped bring this stunning headquarters to life,” said Mike O’Brien, head of Gilbane’s Boston office. “The space underscores Cengage’s culture of collaboration and will no doubt advance the company’s mission to attract the best and brightest employees.”
