The Scoop: Progress at Coppersmith Village
Coppersmith Village is a 56-unit affordable housing residential development in East Boston. The project which sits 150 feet off of the Boston Inner Harbor also includes 15 townhomes. After a busy summer, the site is looking great. We spoke with Field Engineer, James Thomas, to get the scoop.
Phase 2 of the project -the 5 story midrise- has started the punch list process on the 5th floor of the south building. Other floors are to follow behind as all residential floors are just about complete. The first floor of the building is coming along with MEP rough ins finishing up and drywall installation progressing. We have one stair case per building that have been completed, and we are actively working on completing the permanent stairs on the second staircases of each building.
The exterior of the south building is progressing nicely. All the brick veneer is complete, and we are getting close to finishing up the bulk of the siding. Brick veneer is nearly complete on the north building and siding will start shortly.
Phase 3 of the project, the 15 Townhouses, is in the rough MEP stage. We are working from the north end unit and making our way south. Rough MEP’s are close to finishing up on the first 3-6 units with insulation and pre-rock being installed as well.
The main roof is complete with almost all overhangs finalized. Roofing the decks of each unit will follow, as well as starting siding from the north end heading toward the south. Site work for the roadway between the two buildings is slated to start next week and will start from the south end and head north. Landscaping, sidewalks, curbing and site accessories will follow behind the site work.
