Greater than $10 Million
J. Derenzo Co. and its subsidiary firms JDC Demolition, Inc. and Boston Environmental are managing the site work; excavation; utility installation; demolition; abatement; and environmental monitoring portions of work at Boston Landing.
Boston Landing in Brighton is one of Boston’s most highly anticipated new developments. This multi-phased project, constructed by J. Moriarty & Associates and Gilbane, will house 650,000 square feet of office space, including a state-of-the-art headquarters for New Balance, along with a sports center, hotel, retail, restaurant space and the new practice facility for the Boston Bruins.
J. Derenzo Co.’s steady progress with site work and excavation has kept the aggressively scheduled project on course. The team bulk excavated down 20 feet, managed the sheet-driving operation for the below-grade parking garage, removed underground fuel tanks, installed several interior plumbing pits, and prepared the excavation to receive the slab on grade for the garage. In all, the team removed more than 85,000 tons of excavated soil from the nine-acre site in only three months.
Next up, J. Derenzo Co. is performing all the sewer, water, and drain infrastructure in preparation for the full depth reconstruction of the surrounding public streets. J. Derenzo Company will be reconstructing a 1,300 linear-foot stretch of Guest Street in Brighton for acceptance by the City of Boston, including all new pavement, curbing, and street lighting infrastructure.
Meanwhile, JDC Demolition cleared the way for this project by removing a 350,000 SF manufacturing/warehouse facility back in January 2013, which abutted CSX track, and removed a 50,000 SF office building in March 2013. JDC Demolition is currently performing the structural demolition of a former tour bus garage located at 77 Guest Street, and just completed the selective demolition of the existing New Balance Parking Garage by removing portions of the corner stairwells to make way for renovations and upgrades. JDC Demolition will also be demolishing the existing B.L. Makepeace building on Guest Street which will complete the clearing of the footprint of the new sports complex.
Boston Environmental Corp. performed initial environmental surveys on site prior to the start of work; throughout construction the crew is monitoring air quality and coordinating the disposal of contaminated soils.
J. Derenzo Co. expects to be on site through the completion of construction in 2016.
