A new life science building was constructed adjacent to Cambridge's Alewife Train Station, in close proximity to three other new research buildings. Plans called for a three level basement to be constructed in "weight of rod" clay with very low shear strengths. A perimeter slurry wall with unreinforced concrete slurry struts below subgrade, acting as an additional level of temporary bracing, was built to meet strict project lateral movement and settlement criteria.
