Corporate Campus Planning: Spring 2014 Newsletter
SMMA's Marie Fitzgerald, IIDA, has an article in the Spring 2014 issue of Facility, the official newsletter of the Corporate Facilities Council. The article is a case study of SMMA's long relationship with Waters Corporation—specifically, how SMMA helped the company achieve $100 million in net savings by "reinventing" its Milford headquarters: "The Waters team decided to examine alternatives to building another facility, asking whether a more efficient use of existing space could be devised," Fitzgerald writes. "Global competition for young scientists, combined with a need for a more collaborative office environment, tipped the scale in favor of a campus-wide renovation and repositioning program." Most of the $100 million savings were generated by taking away the need for constructing new buildings on the Waters campus.
