730-750 Main St.

Team Sunrise recently completed work at 730-750 Main Street in Cambridge — an exciting redevelopment project led by the MIT Investment Management Company (MITIMCo).

This sharp-looking property, which formerly housed the Polaroid Company, has been extensively renovated to accommodate a mix of laboratory, office and retail uses while respecting the historic nature of the buildings’ façades. As the new home of the MIT venture capital firm The Engine, the complex will serve as a hub where sponsors of breakthrough ideas in “tough tech” can grow their businesses by converging with science and engineering talent, experts, policymakers, and investors.

The scope of work for Sunrise included the furnishing and installation of ACM, phenolic panels, insulated metal panels, and louvers.

500 Forge

As of early 2023, the 500 Forge project in Watertown finished. This development is an exciting new facility on the Arsenal Yards campus .

The latest addition to the new life sciences campus, the building consists of nearly 160,000 sq. ft. of lab and office space and will welcome tenants Orna Therapeutics and AvenCell Therapeutics.

The Sunrise field team spent their time installing Taktl panels as well as tackling some interior work — including the installation of SaftiFirst fire-rated doors in the interior vestibule at the South Garage entrances.

The scope of work includes the entire exterior façade.

Northeastern University Mixed-Use Research Building

This 104,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art facility on Northeastern University’s Burlington campus opened to students in the fall of 2019. Notable features of the new facility include a conference center, research laboratories, scientific core laboratories and office spaces, a rooftop terrace, and a drone testing facility. This academic building serves as a research hub and the cornerstone of the university’s emerging Innovation Campus.

Sunrise was contracted for this new development back in 2018 with the intention of aiding in the design-assist phase of the project. We teamed up with Gilbane Building Co. and EYP, and through months of successful collaboration, helped to finalize all of the design details.

Sunrise’s scope of work ultimately included the furnish and install of curtainwall, entrances, bi-fold glass doors, metal panels, framing and louvers.

828 Winter St.

Located in Waltham, this three-story, 145,000 sq. ft. life science office building is part of greater Boston’s largest multi-tenant lab campus outside of Cambridge. Together with an adjacent office building at 830 Winter Street, it’s now part of a campus that includes a parking garage, central courtyard, and a variety of on-site amenities.

Sunrise’s scope of work consisted of both exterior and interior improvements, including:

  • 16,000 sq. ft. of aluminum curtainwall (EFCO Corp.), glass and glazing (Oldcastle Glass)
  • 19,000 sq. ft. of ACM panels (Arconic)
  • 12,000 sq. ft. of corrugated metal panels (Centria)
  • 10,000 sq. ft. of insulated metal panels (Centria)
  • 3,500 sq. ft. of unitized wall back-up system
  • Louvers supplied by Construction Specialties

11/39 Hurley St. Core & Shell

Completed in 2016, this project consisted of the demolition and re-cladding of an existing building façade as part of a lab space consolidation for a life sciences firm in Cambridge.

The existing structure posed some true challenges with some large installation tolerances. Sunrise had to incorporate different types of adjustable furring systems to keep the new façade plumb and true. We also incorporated our unitized panel system to keep our installers safe and away from nearby power lines.

Product scope included air and vapor barrier, exterior framing, insulation, fiber cement siding, standing seam zinc panels, aluminum storefront, aluminum curtain wall, custom fabricated louvers, entrances, and interior glass and glazing.

75-125 Binney St.

Located in the heart of Kendall Square, this 380,000 sq. ft. life sciences complex was completed in 2015 utilizing a fully integrated design-assist approach. The project consists of two separate buildings, each topped with a two-story mechanical penthouse and connected by a five-story entrance atrium, with a 400-car below-grade parking garage.

Sunrise’s scope included the entire exterior façade. Sunrise engineers and project managers participated in on-site colocation for the better part of a year during the design development phase, and the shop drawings that SEI produced were incorporated into the architect’s set and ultimately became part of the final construction documents.

The product scope included custom ultra-high performance concrete panels, aluminum composite panels, column covers, phenolic panels, insulated metal panels, louvers, air and vapor barrier, thermally broken exterior framing system, insulation, aluminum curtainwall, aluminum storefront and entrances, glass railings, custom point supported steel and glass suspension system and skylight, and all interior glass and glazing.

Wheaton College Mars Center for Science & Technology

The Wheaton College Mars Center for Science and Technology has been recognized as a LEED Gold design since its completion in the fall of 2011. Considered the most ambitious construction project in Wheaton’s history, the three-story, 73,000 sq. ft. facility was designed by Einhorn Yaffee Prescott (EYP) and reflects Wheaton’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

The center houses 14 teaching and 23 research laboratories that serve a variety of disciplines as well as a café, study/social spaces, a greenhouse and vivarium. Sunrise furnished and installed metal, phenolic, and wood panels on the new Mars Center, thus playing a large role in the exterior design of the LEED certified facility.
