Jones Lang LaSalle Wins 96,000-square-foot Interior Construction Assignment for KPMG LLP at Two Financial Center


Jones Lang LaSalle was awarded the contract to provide construction management services for KPMG LLP’s new approximately 96,000-square-foot offices at Two Financial Center in Boston. The customized space on floors one through six will serve as KPMG’s new Boston headquarters.

The interior will enhance workflow efficiency and accommodate KPMG’s growth requirements, which include capacity for 692 employees. Highlights of the build out, valued at $5.8 million, include: a central reception area on floors one and two, a large conference center with full media capabilities, an employee café, dedicated Human Resources suite and open office areas. Floors three through six will be designed for KPMG business teams, and will include hard-walled perimeter offices, open plan interior workspaces and several internal meeting rooms. 
 
The project will seek LEED Gold Certification upon completion. Occupancy is scheduled for June 2010.
 
KPMG will be the anchor tenant in the 220,000-square-foot recently mid-rise office tower currently in the final stage of development. The owner/developer is a joint venture comprised of ASB Capital Management and Lincoln Property Company. Two Financial is the first new building constructed in the city’s Financial District since 2003. 
 
Jones Lang LaSalle’s construction team will be led by Project Executive Steven Wassersug and Senior Construction Manager Dana Griffin. The superintendents will be Kevin Mealey and John Kirk, with Chris Hardiman as the head estimator. Perkins+Will is the project architect and AHA Consulting Engineers the engineer.
 
According to Wassersug:  “It is a privilege to be chosen by KPMG, a global leader in professional services, to provide construction management for its new Boston headquarters. Our team is focused on delivering a high quality space that aligns with KPMG’s business goals, meets its schedule and budget, and exceeds its expectation.”
