Dassault Systèmes, a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, officially opened its DS Boston Campus, the company's new North American headquarters. 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, which included an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, a tour of the campus and demos of the company's latest 3D technologies.

During his welcome address Bernard Charlès stated, “What you see behind me is not just a building. It is a living laboratory for our Dassault Systèmes vision. From this place, we will reach out to the world with our technology and services. This is where we will help creative people visualize solutions to the challenges that face the world, validate that those visions will work, and plan how to bring those visions to life in the most efficient, sustainable way possible.”

Added Al Bunshaft, “We wanted to create a healthy work environment where people would love the space they work in, while promoting creativity and collaboration.”

“Massachusetts has a rich history of innovation, and we continue to welcome new ideas and business growth across the state,” said Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Murray. “The Patrick-Murray Administration is thrilled to have Dassault Systèmes grow in Massachusetts, and we look forward to the success of their expanded footprint and latest 3D technologies.”

“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," said Ambassador Delattre. “America, France and many other nations come together in Dassault Systèmes' culture of collaboration to bring technology, advancement and sustainable business practices to the world.”

The Boston Campus brings together employees who had previously been split between locations in Concord and Lowell, Massachusetts. It includes 320,000 square feet of office, technology lab and data center space, along with a virtual reality center, the campus' breakthrough facility for implementing and experiencing unique virtual worlds with Dassault Systèmes technology.

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.
