Liberty Mutual Headquarters

Boston, MA

The campus of Liberty Mutual’s headquarters serves as impressive combination of historical and artistic honor as well as new construction and innovation. Liberty Mutual wanted its space to reflect their longstanding reputation as a Boston-based company, committed to maintaining the integrity of the arts and culture its city. The goal was to incorporate green-friendly initiatives while still remaining respectful the existing campus neighborhood.

The distinctive triangular shape and curved edges are a direct response to the resolution of the unique challenge of a diagonal street grid. The arched glass foot bridge connecting the new tower with the existing historic Salada Tea Building serves as a visually stimulating and efficient alternative to solving concerns of a closed pedestrian walkway. The cafeteria spans two floors offering a variety of options and cuisines, seating 700 people and serving 5,000 employees, encouraging the corporate culture of “breaking bread together.” A new, two-story conference center was developed to provide a large multi-functional gathering space for employees while linking already existing amenities.

The Green Engineer provided sustainable design services, including LEED project management and energy modeling services.
