BOSTON – April 4, 2013 – Richards Barry Joyce & Partners, LLC (RBJ&P), a full-service commercial real estate advisory firm, announced today that it advised the Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) in a new headquarters lease at 100 1st Avenue, Navy Yard Plaza, Building 39 (Boston, Mass.), in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard.

CMS, which was previously located in Cambridge, leased 13,037 square feet of office space in the building, also known as the Carriage House.  Bob Richards and Alyse Garner of RBJ&P represented CMS, while the building’s landlord, Navy Yard Plaza Development Associates, Inc. – 39 Limited Partnership, was represented by Jones Lang LaSalle.  The renovation and build-out of the space was completed by the Wise Construction Corporation.

“Our workspace is an essential component to enabling us to create the realistic conditions required for healthcare simulation,” said Jeffrey B. Cooper, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Center for Medical Simulation and Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School.  “We could not be more pleased with our new location. The Richards Barry Joyce & Partners team was outstanding in helping is find space that met our unusual requirements and financial constraints. We were especially appreciative at how they went to great lengths to help us in all respects, including lease negotiation, finding effective legal counsel and a fantastic construction partner. I felt like they were holding our hand and had our back throughout this entire process. It’s not what I expected and it sure is what we needed! Everyone who has visited expresses admiration for how wonderful this space feels and yet fulfills our hi-tech, hi-touch programs.”

CMS was founded in 1993 and is an international leader in the still emerging field of healthcare simulation.  At its new facility, CMS creates high-fidelity scenarios that simulate genuine crisis management situations, designed to give healthcare providers a new and enlightening perspective on how to handle challenging medical situations and improve their teamwork in all situations.  The newly renovated space includes a decommissioned CT Scan, a fully equipped Operating Room and a flexible room that can serve as an Intensive Care Unit, emergency room, recovery room or other healthcare setting. The conference space is highly effective for the programs CMS runs for week-long training programs for simulation educators and leaders.

“CMS provides a vital service to the healthcare community and we enjoyed working closely with them on their new headquarters,” said Bob Richards, president, Richards Barry Joyce & Partners.  “What made this project so interesting wasn’t its size or the prominence of the location but rather how closely intertwined the space is with the organization’s mission.”
