Friday, 18 July 2008

What’s old IS new again: that was the message when Shepley Bulfinch – one of the oldest architecture firms in the US – was cited as “Notable” in the 2008 Rebrand 100 Global Awards.

Monday, 7 April 2008

Shepley Bulfinch’s open and collaborative Boston office and design studio wins kudos in the newly published book, Innovations in Office Design: The Critical Influence Approach to Effective Work Environments, by Diane Stegmeier (John Wiley & Sons, Inc).

The open environment fosters a culture in which Shepley staff can easily leverage the creativity and insight ...[more]

Shepley office celebrated as model of flexibility, mobility

Monday, 10 December 2007

The flexibility and openness of Shepley Bulfinch’s LEED-certified Boston office was heralded in a front-page article in today’s Banker and Tradesman.

The feature, by columnist and Boston Architectural College professor Jeff Stein, applauded the mobility and horizontal organization of the office, which is designed to foster a collaborative environment and reconfiguration of staff as project demands require. The office, located in Boston’s Seaport District near the World Trade Center, was awarded LEED-CI Silver certification earlier this year.

The office will be on show next May, when Boston hosts the National Convention of the American Institute of Architects. Shepley Bulfinch is a convention sponsor.
