In order to fast-track PTC’s headquarters in seven and a half months, Gilbane Building Co., managed trade partners working multiple shifts for most of the duration of the project, all coordinated through the use of virtual design and construction.

PTC’s 250,000-sq.ft., nine-floor headquarters is an innovation showcase for Boston’s Seaport District. The provider of solutions for IoT (Internet of Things) and AR (augmented reality) made its headquarters a model for excellence in the use of workplace technology.

The project features custom details including curved glass, curved staircase, and complex lighting and AV (audio/video) systems. It also includes a Corporate Experience Center, which serves as an interactive showcase for PTC’s technology. On the top floor is a large collaborative space called “The Common,” which provides a variety of seating for both employees and customers.
