Bowdoin Completes Supreme Council Headquarters at the National Heritage Museum
Lexington, Massachusetts – Bowdoin Construction has recently completed the fitout of a new corporate headquarters for the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite, within their own active museum. The project, designed by Bechtel Frank Erickson Architects, involved converting two wings of the Museum of Our National Heritage into first class offices and meeting rooms to accommodate the daily functions of the Scottish Rite.
Construction included a new entryway and parking area to the side of the existing museum which separates the new office functions and allowed the museum to be operational throughout construction. The new entry was carefully blended to the existing brick structure of the museum and new windows were added to afford views of the exterior. Interior spaces include offices, conference rooms, and meeting rooms with high-end finishes including granite, etched glass, and raised panel millwork. The new parking area design allows the pastoral landscape around the building to be preserved, a feature prized by both visitors and Lexington residents.
The Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite is a charitable fraternal organization that has long been a leader in the Lexington Community.
