Avison Young Team Awarded Comprehensive Project Management
MORRISTOWN, NJ Avison Young announces that the Avison Young Project Management team in Morristown, New Jersey, has been selected by iCIMS, a leading provider of innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions, to oversee comprehensive project management services for the company's move into its new 200,000-square-foot office space at 101 Crawford Corners Road, also known as the Bell Works facility.
The Avison Young Project Management team, led by Principal and Managing Director, Edward Walsh, along with Vice President Tracey Kasper and Senior Project Manager Lisa Lyng, have been hired to provide project management services and oversee a number of critical elements of the move. These services include hiring consultants, overall design and construction, office furniture selection, relocation coordination as well as budget and contract management. The Avison Young team will be working alongside two vendors on the project, IA Interior Architects and AMA Consulting Engineers.
As part of the new design, iCIMS will have an open plan space, with an entrance off of the first floor level as well as adjoining stairs to additional floors which they will occupy. The plan also encompasses support spaces which include huddle rooms, conference rooms and pantries. The company plans to occupy the new space in the summer of 2017.
"We are delighted to have been chosen by a iCIMS, a world-class corporation, to manage the renovation work and relocation to the Bell Works building in Holmdel," said Walsh. "At this redesigned building, iCIMS will be the anchor tenant at a facility long known for groundbreaking achievements.
The facility, owned by and designed by architect Eero Saarien, is a two-million-square-foot building surrounded by 472 acres of parking lots and green space and also the former headquarters for Bell Labs. Somerset Development is in the process of transforming the property into an indoor city, complete with a vibrant "downtown," lined with stores and restaurants on the ground floor of the building's giant atrium. Offices and a hotel will fill the upper floors, and new single-family homes will be built nearby. The public library will have a branch in the building, and an onsite conference facility will be available to tenants for large meetings. The redevelopment will truly make the campus a "live, work, play and create" atmosphere.
"The type of technology that once occupied Bell Works was ground-breaking for its time and truly inspirational," said Len Carella, Vice President of Infrastructure & Shared Services of iCIMS. "We are excited to work closely with Avison Young to help us transform the space into a technology hub once again, and attract a wealth of talent to help grow our organization well into the 21st century."
