Putnam Investments Global Headquarters, 100 Federal Street, Boston, MA

By Featured, Projects, Tenant

J&M Brown Company completed the 250,000 square-foot, 10-floor fit-out of Putnam Investments new headquarters at 100 Federal Street in the heart of Boston’s financial district.  

The scope entailed comprehensive electrical distribution and lighting installations for the offices which house approximately 1,000 Putnam staff members.  The project scope included eight floors of state-of-the-art offices, a 150-plus seat auditorium, conference centers, a network of meeting rooms, a new data center, a commercial kitchen, and a mezzanine roof deck.  

Data center and electrical distribution installations included two UPS systems, three standby electrical risers and internal communications risers that are tied to the standby emergency generator.  Six automatic transfer switches that tie into the generator were also installed. 

The project team was headed by JMB Vice President and Project Manager Dennis Nigro and Foremen Bill Marchant, Dave Marchand, and Mike Sawyer.  

Putnam moved from into its new 100 Federal headquarters from its former offices at One Post Office Square in October 2018.

Project Challenges

Coordination of multiple power shutdowns during the project to meet building owner and tenant requirements and also to ensure critical data was maintained throughout the project.

JMB met the fast-track, nine-month project schedule managing a crew of 50 IBEW Local 103 electricians at peak construction. To meet Putnam’s move-in schedule, the power distribution scope was completed in four months and 8 floors of elaborate office fit-out requirements were completed in only seven months.
