CISCA is the leading authority for information on the interior construction, acoustical ceilings, and acoustical treatment industry.

The 105

Gold Award, East Region: Office, under 50,000 sq. ft.

The 105 by Breakthrough, located at 105 West First Street in Boston, MA, was a new construction project for a life science facility. In order to achieve the custom ceiling design for the facility lobby, USG helped the project streamline design research, project development, and estimating to ensure the highest quality product was delivered. The result was a parametric perforation design that created a distinctive, cohesive pattern across a system of unique panels.
