Cambridge Consultants moves US headquarters
Company relocates US headquarters to support innovation and growth
Product development and design firm Cambridge Consultants has moved its US headquarters from Cambridge, MA to Boston. In a move that nearly doubles its prior space in Kendall Square, the company’s new 20,000 square foot facility at 745 Atlantic Avenue is designed to foster the company’s innovation, development and design capabilities, and support its plans for continued growth.
The new space boasts realistic use environments, such as a simulated operating room, which enable the team to gather unique insights that inform innovative product design. The industrial-grade facilities, such as the anechoic chamber, mechanical and electronics prototyping shops, human factors suite and creativity space, will allow faster and more precise product development to create disruptive technologies.
Cambridge Consultants plans to grow its US staff from 32 employees to 100 over the next three years. With deep expertise in the medical technology field, the company’s Boston office will expand the team specifically in this sector.
“We are thrilled to move today to our new office – a space that provides unparalleled opportunity for growth and innovation for our talented staff,” said David Bradshaw, US general manager. “Every inch of this space was thoughtfully designed to support how we work at Cambridge Consultants, and it represents our blend of technology and engineering excellence with user-focused design. We look forward to adding intelligent, passionate people to our Boston team and continuing to drive world-class innovation.”
To execute its vision of a revolutionary workplace, Cambridge Consultants engaged global planning and design firm Sasaki Associates. "Cambridge Consultants is totally unique,” said Sasaki principal Victor Vizgaitis. "The new space will not only help them innovate and attract top talent, but will communicate the story of who they are, how they work, and what sets them apart."
Cambridge Consultants is launching an aggressive recruitment campaign in the autumn to employ the US’s most skilled engineers. Working in Cambridge Consultants’ new, state-of-the-art facility will provide supreme levels of development and design experience.
