Liberty Mutual, Downtown Boston Roof Replacement

  • Project Type:Roof Replacement
  • Owner:Liberty Mutual
  • Location:Boston, Massachusetts
  • Architect/Engineer:Gale Associates
  • Project Dates:Fall 2012-Fall 2013

This multi-phase Preconstruction and Construction roof renovation project in Downtown Boston was completed within two-years. DCBA’s greatest challenge with this undertaking was that the scope of work spread across two fully occupied city blocks and crossed multiple high-rise buildings. Given the proximity of other buildings, streets, and pedestrians, DCBA had to flawlessly coordinate construction efforts with the Owner, the design consultant, and the City of Boston due. Such harmonization was carried out through regular communication, weekly scope review meetings, review of constructability and details, survey of existing conditions, phasing, cost, and logistics studies. Work was divided into 15 separate phases/areas, many of which were completed simultaneously. Renovation work included removing old roofing membrane and insulation; installing a new roofing systems, aluminum standing seam panels, flashings, stairs, windows, and sealant; and limiting the plumbing scope to accommodate the new system.
