Located in Boston’s Longwood Medical Area (LMA), the 1.1 million square-foot facility is the LMA’s tallest building and the city’s largest research center.
The 22-story building provides more than 700,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research space for advanced work in biomedical science. With six levels of below-grade parking, the building was constructed using the up-down construction method. Mitigation was an issue that was resolved by pre-planning all activities on the site as the project was on a zero lot line site closely abutting sensitive neighbors such as Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Merck, Harvard Medical School, and Children’s Hospital Boston.
Operating under an accelerated schedule, our project team also performed four tenant fit outs for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Immune Disease Institute simultaneously with the core and shell construction. At its peak, the team had more than 600 workers on the project site each day. The team relocated all Medical Area Total Energy Plant (MATEP) utilities without disruption to the multiple institutions they serve and discovered many undocumented utilities (including a 6,000 gallon oil tank).
