A top-to-bottom restoration transformed this historic building, former United Shoe Machinery foundry building and adjacent powerhouse in Beverly, Massachusetts into 900 Cummings Center. The building overlooks a freshwater pond and is located within the 2 million square foot, 77-acre, sprawling business campus known as Cummings Center.

This building located on a former Brownfield site, was one of a several building, 10-year, $50-million renovation project. Three floors were built in the former hanger-size casting bay and boilerhouse. An entirely new HVAC system featuring energy-efficient water source heat pumps and central cooling towers and boilers was installed. Cummings replaced hundreds of exterior windows with insulated, tinted glazing systems assembled on site. High-efficiency lighting was installed throughout, including a prototype indirect uplight system in cooperation with the electrical utility, National Grid. Cummings worked closely with both National Grid and Keyspan to obtain efficiency incentives for the renovation of the entire 2-million square foot campus. The onsite building management and maintenance crew pays close attention to system operation, helping maintain system efficiency and customer satisfaction.

A large portion of this office building is devoted to medical uses. Just minutes from Beverly Hospital, this thriving Medical Center is home to dozens of medical practitioners including doctors, dentists, therapists, and other medical service providers. 900 Cummings Center also features a full-service restaurant, and is home to a major law firm and life science firm. Clients benefit from the many on-campus conveniences such as a fitness center, a U.S. Post Office, two full-service banks, day care, two salons, a dry cleaner, and more.

Just one mile off Rt. 128, "America's Technology Highway," Cummings Center is a 25-minute drive from downtown Boston and Boston's Logan International Airport. Beverly and its environs offer the accessibility and quality of life for which the North Shore is renowned.
