Education First HQ

Sunrise was proud to team up with Skanska USA, Wilson Architects, and EFEKTA Three, Inc. on this design-assist project at the new North American headquarters of Education First (EF).

Located in North Point in Cambridge along the banks of the Charles River, the new 11-story structure consists of 261,727 sq. ft. of general office, educational and restaurant space and a 64,700-sq. ft., three-level, above-grade parking garage.

The design and construction teams used Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) to collaborate on a number of innovations to improve quality, efficiency and schedule for both the core and shell and the fit-out of the new construction.

We are honored to have played a role in bringing the intended design vision to fruition.

Sunrise’s full scope of work for the EF III project included:

  • 50,000 sq. ft. of unitized curtain wall, aluminum doors and glazing (C.I Energía Solar ESWindows)
  • 9,000 sq. ft. of ACM panels (Arconic)
  • 15,000 sq. ft. of corrugated and perforated metal panels (Morin – A Kingspan Group Co.)
  • 1,000 sq. ft. of louvers (Airolite)

Special shout-out to C.I Energía Solar ESWindows for the awesome pictures!
