Featured experience

Patrons Oxford Insurance new corporate headquarters

The two-story office building features plenty of light, flexible work and meeting spaces, and a fitness area with lockers and showers. The building uses mass timber framing with some structural steel reinforcements—and has a photovoltaic rooftop array that will provide up to 40 percent of its electricity needs.

MassArt Museum art gallery renovations

For decades, the Massachusetts College of Art and Design showcased contemporary art exhibitions, but the lack of air conditioning, restrooms, and elevators prevented guests from having an optimal experience. These issues spurred the college’s largest private fundraising campaign yet, engaging 424 donors to renovate the 110-year-old space.

York Hospital Strater Wing Birthing Suite

This was a complete renovation of the second-floor core area including HVAC and utility infrastructure replacements and upgrades. We also replaced the entire steam heating system with high-efficiency condensing gas-fired boilers and duct-mounted hot water heating coils to create a four-pipe hot water/chilled water system.
