Summary:

DH was hired in October 2012 to assist Boston Heart Diagnostics (BHD) with their re- stack and build out project. Having occupied their space for less than one year, BHD’s growth required the relocation of their 5th floor administrative space to a newly acquired space on the first floor of their current building while simultaneously renovating the former admin space to house their Pre- Analytical / Genetic / Chemistry labs. Upon completion of the 5th floor work, BHD began the re-design and build out of the 4th floor for the HDL / Agarose and lab office expansion.

Project Management

  • Led all preliminary programming meetings with the lab and administrative departments to understand the anticipated growth for each group
  • Communicated information to the architectural firms for the design processes
  • Worked with the furniture vendor to develop a reuse plan for existing furniture and identify what new furniture was required
  • Worked with the lab staff to schedule delivery of new equipment and removal of old
    • Scheduled specialty vendors to prep and relocate existing equipment
    • Oversaw the main move of the labs
    • BHD is a 7-day a week operation, DH ensured the move was completed within the 10 hours allotted

As BDH continues to grow, DH maintains an on-site leadership role in both space planning and relocation, including but not limited to:

  • Overseeing the renovation of 28,000 sf
    • Reconfiguration of 100+ workstation of sub-leased administrative space
    • Moved the majority of BHD’s Finance, IT and Marketing teams in a 4-month time frame
    • Oversee replacement of carpeting in a 5-week phased approach
  • Overseeing the expansion plans in both the lab and print shop departments.
