Verizon Innovation Center, Waltham MA

NELSON the first Verizon Innovation Center located in Massachusetts’ famed “technology corridor.”  Created to foster, advance, showcase and demonstrate the next generation of Verizon’s wireless technology.

At the Innovation Center, Verizon engineers, technology partners, innovators, entrepreneurs, industry associations and customers work together to create real-world, everyday solutions that harness the speed and power of Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Comprised of high-end conference facilities, executive dining and multiple laboratory vignettes, the Innovation Center integrates LEED Gold design infused with technology, state-of-the-art interactive media, compelling product showcases and innovative brand messaging to provide visitors a unique, engaging experience. Each laboratory is individually designed with efficient HVAC and high-end audio/visual electronics.

In March 2012, the Verizon Innovation Center received the World Class Center Award from the Association of Briefing Program Managers. Verizon’s program marks the first time an innovation center has won this award.  In 2013, the site was selected for a global Green Good Design Award.

NELSON created a multi-clinic space from an abandoned shopping complex that included grocery, hardware and retail stores. Instead of produce and hammers, people now have an engaging environment to access a variety of orthopedic services.

Focusing on New Ways of Working

Continuing to build on a successful, 10-year relationship, NELSON recently completed the tenant fit-up of two build-to-suit buildings for Biogen Idec's corporate headquarters totaling 507,000 SF.  The process included abandoning a 20-year-old conventional office standard in favor of a cross-functional, open plan that supports teaming and collaboration.
