EMD Serono Wins IFMA Boston Award for Its First in the Country WELL Certified Gold for New and Existing Facilities Category

Boston, MA – May 21, 2018 – Fort Point Project Management, Boston’s leading independent project and relocation management firm, is proud to announce that one of its recently completed projects for EMD Serono, received a IFMA Boston Award of Excellence for their Sagamore Building. The award was announced at IFMA Boston’s annual Awards Gala, with the project receiving the Best Practice Award in the medium project category.

“EMD Serono is honored to receive this Award from IFMA Boston”, said Anthony Meenaghan, Senior Director, Facilities Management and Engineering, Environmental Health & Safety, EMD Serono. “We believe that through offering employees an environment where they can do their best work plays an important role in bringing meaningful solutions to people with difficult to treat diseases.”

Completed June 2017, EMD Serono’s Project Sagamore totaled 58,000 SF, and included partial renovation of an existing 28,000 SF office building and a 30,000 SF expansion to that structure. In addition to achieving LEED Platinum Status, the Sagamore Building recently earned WELL Gold Certification, the first to earn this designation in the U.S. and only the second in the world, in the New and Existing Building category. WELL Certification ensures that the built environment is designed to improve the nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns and performance of its occupants.

“We’re proud to have a client like EMD Serono who values progressive solutions that benefit their employees and hope we see the WELL Standard adopted readily across the industry,” said Fort Point PM Co-Founder Christine Mosholder. “As a founding sponsor of the wellness focused women’s networking organization WWIRE, we’ve long advocated for wellness and sustainability in the workplace and hope to continue educating clients and partners on the values and benefits of WELL building.”

The IFMA Boston Best Practice Awards are presented to the individual or team whose facility management, new construction or renovation project has had a substantial, positive effect on the business or organization.
