The office space at Winthrop Center, a 53-story, new mixed-use tower in Boston’s financial district, was recently certified by the Passive House Institute as the largest office space that adheres to the principles worldwide.  

The $1.3 billion, 1.8 million-sf, development houses 750,000-sf of Class A office space, 420 luxury condominiums, and retail offices. 

IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design for the fit-out of three amenity floors that include fitness studios, shower and locker rooms, bar and kitchen spaces, screening rooms, dining rooms, art galleries, private gathering spaces, and child-dedicated areas.  

The tower was designed to LEED Platinum, Passive House and WELL Gold standards.
