EMD Serono’s Sagamore Building, a transformational office space built by JLL Construction, has earned the highest level of certification awarded by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED Platinum. The 14,000 square foot building is located on EMD’s Billerica campus.
Led by the EMD Serono facilities group, the team involved in the LEED submission included: JLL Construction, architect Ellenzweig, MEP engineer BR+A, structural engineer LeMessurier Consultants, LEED consultant The Green Engineer, and commissioning agent DMI. The team was recognized at a ceremony last week, and was honored by Jim Newman, Chair of the Board of the Massachusetts United States Green Building Council Chapter, as well as EMD Serono President and Managing Director Paris Panayiotopoulos.
The construction of the Sagamore Building included the complete renovation of a former lab building on site adding a mezzanine level, multiple stairways, and significant system and building upgrades. It offers a biopharmaceutical working environment where Research and Development project teams can collaborate, communicate and share knowledge in the pursuit of new therapies for patients with unmet medical needs around the world.
The JLL Construction team was comprised of: Managing Director Peter Stankiewicz, Project Executive Larry Carpenter, Superintendent Dan Browne and Estimator Greg Steele.
