Like so many growing tech companies, when it came time for Lumenpulse to look for more office space, finding something with an open concept to showcase their products was a top priority. But unlike other tech companies, Lumenpulse, which designs and manufactures architectural LED lighting, was also in need of space that could serve as a working showroom.
“The biggest thing we wanted to be able to do was showcase a wide variety of our products in the space and how they are used and can be used,” said Allison Finn, Office Manager at Lumenpulse.

In addition to making a design impact with their lighting products throughout the space, they also needed the area to be conducive to both their engineering and sales teams, which each had a very unique set of requirements.
“We needed an environment where these two vastly different disciplines could co-exist, somewhere where we could be prototyping and testing as well as somewhere we could conduct our sales operations,” said Greg Campbell, SVP of Engineering and Chief Technology Officer at Lumenpulse.
They successfully found all of that at Ten Post Office Square. The re-imagined property in the heart of Downtown Boston appealed to Lumenpulse because of its central location and upcoming enhancements including a lobby renovation, as well as the addition of a restaurant and gym.
“We are pioneers here in the Financial District as far as a hip technology company,” added Campbell.
The new space, which the employees love so far, has a number of unique features including a multi-purpose training room complete with a full glass garage door. The property serves as Lumenpulse’s US headquarters and Global Technology Center, bolstering the company’s technological innovations with cutting-edge R&D facilities, including new education and training spaces for clients and partners. It’s an end result that wouldn’t have been possible without guidance and support along the way.
“We didn’t really have any expertise coming in. We had a vague understanding of what we wanted, but we really relied on our partners, especially JLL, throughout the process to help us out,” said Campbell.
