Tocci’s Newest Project Breaks Ground in Brookline, MA
130-Key Hilton Homewood Suites Coming to Transit-Friendly Urban Location
Woburn, MA (July 8, 2014) – Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction manager and recognized leader in virtual design and construction solutions, participated yesterday in the official groundbreaking ceremony for Claremont Companies’ Hilton Homewood Suites in Brookline, MA. Tocci will work with architects Group One Partners, Inc. and R.W. Sullivan Engineering to deliver the 130-key, 97,775 SF extended-stay hotel to Claremont Companies in December of 2015.
The project is conveniently located adjacent to public transportation, and will provide much-needed hotel accommodations to the City of Brookline. While the location is an asset to the finished hotel, the tight site’s adjacency to active MBTA tracks and a community park adds complexity to construction logistics. Tocci will develop a Building Information Model (BIM) of the Brookline Homewood Suites to coordinate project systems, streamline the construction process, and communicate its mitigation plan to the project team and community.
We are excited to manage this unique urban project as it presents complex logistical challenges.Our approach using BIM allows us to sequence every aspect of the project and account for site restrictions, traffic flow, and tight schedules while ensuring optimal project execution.
– John Tocci, CEO
Located at 111 Boylston Street, the upscale all-suite hotel will set a new standard in the Brookline area, offering guests convenient like-home comforts and quality bundled services in a transit-friendly environment.
