Upon deciding to relocate from Connecticut to the Boston area, FujiFilm’s Medical Division wanted to also create an exciting new “Customer Briefing Center” and technical training facility for its medical imaging systems. Complete with functional X-ray and MRI machinery and demonstration rooms, the intent was to capitalize on the Massachusetts environment of innovation and investment.
Additionally, MP designed in Cambridge a new “innovation center” as a convening space to be part of the scientific community’s ecosystem. Both spaces employed advanced AV systems, bold branding, and highly sophisticated imaging equipment in addition to attractive and functional training and workspaces.

Like many companies, healthcare products manufacturer Covidien had grown into their Mansfield campus over time. Covidien asked Margulies Perruzzi to develop a master plan for the campus that would not only expand operations but also provide for a more streamlined organization across units. The master plan considered possible organizational configurations, assessed cost and schedule implications, and considered disruption to operations and staff with the goal of developing a high-quality office environment combined with research and development facilities.
Margulies Perruzzi designed the centerpiece of the new campus, a 160,000 square foot headquarters building that includes the main reception area and customer briefing center, a corporate cafeteria, and a variety of office areas.
Margulies Perruzzi also designed lab space for biosciences, dialysis, sharp safety, technical services, urology, vascular therapy, wound care, clinical affairs, medical affairs, chemistry, and technical documentation on the Mansfield Campus.
Teleflex is a global provider of medical devices used in critical care and surgery. Margulies Perruzzi was asked to design a building expansion consisting of an additional 12,000 square feet of new manufacturing space that would house an extrusion/drying tower comprising 70 feet in height and space for process manufacturing for annealing, etching and separation of medical grade tubing.
Due to the complexity of this project, Margulies Perruzzi worked closely with structural and MEP/FP consultants to keep this very busy three-shift manufacturing plant active and online without unexpected shutdowns or disruptions to daily productivity.
