North Shore Biotech Campus


Collaborating with Richard Burck Associates, Offshoots designed and installed the ground level plantings for a Biotech Campus expansion on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The planting design responds to varied site conditions and utilizes six distinct native plant communities to transform a highly ornamental landscape into one that is ecologically connected to its surroundings. In 2022 and 2023 Offshoots Horticultural Installation team began installation of a large meadow area where native forbes and grasses are replacing the campus lawn areas. Native plant ‘straight’ species were utilized to the maximum extent possible to provide enhanced biodiversity and seed-spreading abilities. To create larger scale consistency throughout the site, ribbons of plants sweep through plant communities. On top of a new nearby lab building, an Offshoots designed rooftop pollinator garden was installed in 2023 by Roof Meadows. The pollinator garden was designed to attract pollinators throughout the entire growing season while also providing manicured views from the building interior.
