It’s almost summertime, and our projects have been making a lot of progress.

We reached out to project team members for an update on how the projects are coming along.

Now let’s see what they look like!:

Brookside Square, West Concord, MA update from Dan Weber, Assistant Superintendent

“Brookside Square is seeing a lot of exciting progress, both inside and outside. We have begun painting the exterior siding and panels on the residential units of the building. We have also started to spray primer throughout the first two sections of the units inside. We are working to complete the sheetrock install on one end of the building while beginning the flooring and door installs on the other end.”

Homewood Suites, Brookline, MA Update from John Adams, Superintendent

“The structural steel and precast plank installation are now 75% complete. There is a 275-ton crane set up inside the building footprint, this crane will be leaving and will be replaced by a smaller 200-ton crane. The smaller crane will straddle the foundation wall along Boylston Street to install the remainder of the building. The first half of the building is now accessible to all trades for underground utility work, coring of precast plank for mechanical risers, partition layout, spray fireproofing, exterior wall framing, and the start of the roof installation which will all be happening this week!”

“The project has continued to progress with the installation of structural steel supports on the P3 and P2 garage levels. Column reinforcing plates are also being installed throughout the garage. Some minor demolition work is still left and continues to progress. The structural steel transfer deck erection date is now set to begin on June 26th.”

Rock Chapel Marine, Chelsea, MA Update from Steve Gonthier, Superintendent

“The foundation is complete. We are now gearing up for structural slab placement and site-work operations. We have had a few hiccups in regard to framing, but have since worked out most of the issues between the contractor and the Architect’s team. The on-site support of the client’s employees has been outstanding and critical to the forward motion of the project.”
