Located in Waltham, the award-winning 27-acre campus is heralded as a showcase for sustainable innovation, the creation of lifelike experiences using 3D, and has been LEED-certified, demonstrating the company’s commitment to conserving national resources.
Public figures, such as His Excellency François Delattre, France’s Ambassador to the United States and Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray, joined Dassault Systèmes President and CEO Bernard Charlès and North America Managing Director Al Bunshaft at the opening event, held December the 8th 2011, which included an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, a tour of the campus and demos of the company’s latest 3D technologies.
A hub for sustainable innovation, built with Dassault Systèmes solutions
The campus was designed and outfitted with sustainable innovation in mind. More than 2,000 tons of recycled steel were used in construction and 61,000 tons of structural materials re-used as fill. The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) units use a chemical-free electrostatic water treatment unit instead of chlorine. Overall energy use is reduced by 29 percent through a combination of high-efficiency rooftop HVAC units and boilers.
The 3DS Boston campus has been awarded Gold LEED Construction Certification, along with the Commercial Brokers Association Suburban Office Deal of the Year; and the Massachusetts Alliance for Economic Development (MassEcon) Team Massachusetts Economic Impact Award.
As France’s premier software company and a leading technology company internationally, Dassault Systèmes embodies the long history of friendship and cooperation between France and the United States.
