Lockheed Martin Advanced Energy Storage, Cambridge, MA
Lockheed Martin, formerly Sun Catalytix was founded on the vision of developing new energy conservation technologies to enable widespread use of renewable energy. The company is focused on a flow battery for storing multiple hours of energy on the grid.
R E Dinneen was retained to fully renovate a 2-story, 3-part, interconnected warehouse to support the company’s research and development. The 17,000 sf facility includes a chemistry lab and support functions, flow battery test and system build area, model shop, soft goods and solution preparation, as well as administrative offices, conference rooms, lunch room, and open plan work area. The design’s open-spaces allow for natural light and flexible work areas enhance communication and collaboration.
“We’ve gotten terrific feedback from everyone – they really like the open and collaborative feel. The space has a lot of natural light which is positive. The assembly & battery test areas worked out perfectly, and the lunch room is a gathering place which everyone really enjoys.”
