Fresenius Medical Care North America
Waltham, Massachusetts

The North American Headquarters for Fresenius is located in Waltham, Massachusetts, where their central staff of approximately 900 people occupy over 350,000 sq. ft. in multiple buildings in the Waltham Woods development. Fresenius has teamed up with Dore + Whittier to provide Architectural and Owner’s Project Management (OPM) services for their 2014 restack project. Due to a large amount of company growth, Fresenius is looking to restack  multiple floors and departments to provide a more efficient space that is well designed and can be completed in a short timeframe to keep up with their personnel changes.

Fresenius saw the benefit of hiring one cohesive team including designers and OPMs to offer a complete package to solve their needs for this project. Dore + Whittier was able to provide Fresenius with one-stop shopping for all the owner requirements. The benefits of this delivery for the owner include: Saving time hiring one firm instead of two; maximizing  efficiency during design development as OPM and designers are working out of the same office; and providing a single point of contact for all project communications. Fresenius knew that construction in occupied facilities can be difficult so they chose Dore & Whittier to help them with this problem, based upon the team's combined knowledge and background in similar projects.

  • Owner’s Project Management Services
