When health insurer BCBSMA purchased this 1980’s-era office building in 2004, the property didn’t come close to meeting current standards for workspace design and accessibility.

Bringing this patient back to health required a complete renovation of the building and site, including a new 1,300-car parking structure, on-site childcare center and cafeteria.

In addition to meeting its associates’ business needs, BCBSMA was also committed to reducing the environmental impact of the renovation project and the building’s ongoing operation.
