DH was hired in October 2012 to assist Boston Heart Diagnostics (BHD) with their re- stack and build out. 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.

BHD is a 7-day a week operation, DH ensured the move was completed within the 10 hours allotted.  DH also moved the majority of BHD’s Finance, IT and Marketing teams in a 4-month time frame.
