Callahan Receives LEED Gold Certification at 300 Third Avenue Project

Waltham, MA – Callahan Construction Managers announced that Lincoln Property Company’s 300 Third Avenue project in Waltham has been awarded LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Callahan provided construction management services at this 4-story, 139,000sf Class A facility, located in the Rt. 128 Tech Corridor.

Representatives of Callahan say that, in concert with DiMella Shaffer Architects, the firm was selected to oversee the construction of 300 Third Avenue thanks to its deep experience in laboratory construction as well as green building, and that when the project wrapped up in early 2022, it brought to market four stories of laboratory and office space with highly efficient mechanical, chemical storage and utility areas to service the most demanding laboratory operations.

From a sustainability standpoint, 300 Third Avenue offers a variety of green-focused features designed to support efficient building operations and sustainable lifestyle choices. Attaining Gold certification denotes that a building has excelled in its sustainable design and operation, securing over 60% of the available LEED points. Features like electric car charging stations, bike storage and showers, and shuttle access to MBTA Waltham are all designed to help building occupants make decisions that help support reduced carbon emissions and road-going traffic.

In addition to achieving LEED Gold status, 300 Third Avenue is also WiredScore Gold Certified. This certification recognizes and promotes digitally connected buildings across the globe, and proves that a building has the digital infrastructure in place to support companies now and in the future.

Representatives of Callahan say the firm makes every effort to provide clients with sustainable and efficient materials and equipment options, adding that the company currently has 30 Passive House certified licensed professionals on staff, and is proud to have leveraged this in-house expertise to achieve LEED Gold at the Waltham site.

“The need for sustainable building and flexible laboratory space has never been more important in today’s market, with tenants looking for options that will both serve their existing and future space requirements, along with providing healthy environments for employees,” said Steve Callahan Jr., vice president of business development, Callahan. “300 Third Avenue is a perfect example of how teams can work together to create highly sought after space while reducing the building’s impact on the environment, and we are happy to see it receive this impressive certification from the USGBC.”
