Building 9 is a six-story, 190,000-square-foot complex in Cambridge that features an “open space” design.
A new Biogen complex in Cambridge features “walk stations” where employees can work while walking on treadmills.
Featured in the new Biogen Idec buildings will be huddle rooms that officials hope will encourage unplanned meetings.
A commuter bus equipped with Wi-Fi and charging stations shuttles employees to Cambridge from Worcester and Framingham.
The “open space” design is a radical departure from operations elsewhere at Biogen Idec and other biotechs.
“This whole idea of no offices is a little controversial,” admitted chief executive George Scangos. “It’s a new way of working."
