112 Barnum Road
Located within the Barnum Business Park in Devens, the facility was originally constructed in 2010 by Evergreen Solar at the cost of approximately $196 million and included enhanced high-capacity features such as emergency diesel generators, internal waste water treatment, and chemical bunkers, in addition to specialized air abatement and water cooling systems. In order to create a multi-tenant building for the owner, Integrated Builders, ci Design, and Bob MacCormack of Avid Engineers had to redesign the Direct Digital Control system at the facility.
With extensive background in sophisticated electrical and mechanical systems, Integrated Builders reconfigured chillers and handlers, electrical switch gear and conduits to provide a two-tenant building with separate metering systems. Additionally, Integrated Builders helped new owner Calare Properties understand the value and potential uses of the specialized manufacturing infrastructure installed in the facility. In 2013, Integrated Builders’ conversion of 112 Barnum Road earned the Industrial/Flex Deal of the Year by the Boston Business Journal.
