Iron Mountain’s New Global Headquarters Receives NEWiRE Achievement Award for Networking

Project team of real estate professionals leads company’s move to One Federal Street in Boston

BOSTON – April 10, 2014Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), one of Boston’s most innovative architectural and interior design firms, is proud to announce that the project team for Iron Mountain’s new global headquarters at One Federal Street in Boston has received the New England Women in Real Estate (NEWiRE) Achievement Award for Networking. Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM), a worldwide provider of information storage and management solutions, moved into its new 112,000 square foot global headquarters in February 2014.

The NEWiRE Networking Award recognizes a commercial real estate networking experience that most clearly represents the goals and purposes of NEWiRE. With more than 500 members, NEWiRE provides a forum for education, networking and professional development to women in various commercial real estate disciplines throughout the Greater Boston area. Now in its 16th year, the NEWiRE Annual Achievement Awards recognize members, in six categories, who best embody the spirit and principles of NEWiRE.

Spearheaded by Sarah Abrams, Iron Mountain’s senior vice president of global real estate, these NEWiRE members were part of the project team that supported the relocation of Iron Mountain:

“An office design project of this size and complexity – and executed within a tight timeframe –required a skilled team of real estate, design, and construction professionals,” said Abrams. “The success of this project is a direct result of the proven collaboration and commitment of each of these contributors, and we are honored to receive this NEWiRE award.”

Having outgrown its previous space at 745 Atlantic Ave. in Boston, Iron Mountain sought a collaborative, state-of-the-art office environment to support its increasingly mobile workforce and address the inefficiencies created in its former workspace. With the move to One Federal Street, Iron Mountain decided to adopt a high performance workspace strategy and launch a formal mobile workforce program called “Mobile Mountaineering.” Featuring an open, flexible, and efficient floor plan with individual workspaces, fewer offices, and technology-supported conference and collaboration rooms, the high performance workspace design of Iron Mountain’s new global headquarters promotes collaboration, sustainability, and global branding. The project is expected to achieve LEED certification.
