Siena Completes 24,275 SF Mixed-Use Space for MOMA Therapeutics in Cambridge
CAMBRIDGE, MA – Siena Construction has completed a tenant fit-out project on a lab and office space for MOMA Therapeutics in Cambridge. MOMA Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company discovering the next generation of precision medicines by targeting molecular machines that underlie human disease.
MOMA’s 24,275 square foot space is located at 20 Acorn Park Drive, part of Cambridge’s Discovery Park near Alewife and Fresh Pond. The Bulfinch-owned property is among of the Cambridge’s largest campuses, and among the city’s first post-war office parks.
The $7.27 Million renovations to MOMA’s sixth floor space included offices and labs to support scientific research, encourage collaboration and solo work. The office build-out included conference rooms, huddle areas, collaboration zones, phone rooms, open work space, a kitchenette with café seating, welcome lounge, and common corridors. The laboratory portion of the project included development of working cold rooms, microscope rooms, autoclave/glass wash, bio-waste storage, and facilities lab support. Two large open lab areas included an extensive casework package, with installation of lab benches, fume hoods, sinks, and other lab equipment.
Led by Senior Project Manager Keith Kingdon, APM Liv Oskin, and Superintendent Dave Viola, Siena provided preconstruction and construction management services throughout the project. During the seven-month on-site schedule, Siena oversaw trade work, including demolition, MEP Finishes, new lighting package, wall and ceilings, sprinklers, flooring, tel-data finishes, furniture and casework installations.
Siena collaborated closely with the design team – Boston-based architects Lab/Life. Science. Architecture, Inc., with MEP and FP consulting from AHA Engineers – building ownership from Bulfinch, and facilities crew. Communication was critical to fulfill the building’s specifications, meet the owner’s requirements, and ensure renovations were completed within the allotted construction schedule. With work occurring during the COVID pandemic, additional on-site safety protocols were established to ensure the health and safety of construction workers, building occupants, neighbors, and the public.
