Norwood, MA and Salem, NH
Maugel's most recent project for the CCS Companies was the 40,000sf interior fit-out of the corporate headquarters in Norwood, MA. Prior projects included a 130,000sf interior renovation at 9 Northeastern Boulevard in Salem, NH and interior improvements to the CCS facility in Portsmouth, NH.
The Norwood building previously housed multiple tenants who shared a dark common lobby, corridor, and stair. Maugel designed a three-floor renovation transforming the space into a modern, light-filled environment. On the first floor, Maugel designed a new lobby featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a glass and stainless steel stair rail that maximizes light into the space. The addition of a welcoming lobby and reception area, expanded restrooms, and multiple glass-wall conference rooms add sophistication to the space. In the open-area call center, low-profile workstation panels were used to maximize light and views to the exterior. The executive office suite, boardroom, administrative offices, training room, and breakroom are located on the upper floor.
At the Salem, NH location, Maugel took full advantage of the facility’s 22-foot-high ceilings by featuring ceiling clouds hung at a varying heights to create changing volumes. The design featured a Main Street circulation corridor connecting a new entry lobby to a new interior courtyard and other building amenities. The facility was nominated for a 2012 IFMA Award of Excellence.
