The 50+60 Binney Street project was the latest addition to the burgeoning Bio-Medical community in the Kendall Square area of Cambridge. The installed perimeter slurry wall and LBEs created a six level basement utilizing top down construction methods. Fifty one load bearing elements with embedded columns were installed as part of the process. The basement was then excavated to a depth of 75’ below street grade.
