Project Description:
This medical research facility is being constructed in the Longwood Medical Center community alongside Beth Israel Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Deaconess Hospital. The slurry wall foundation will provide 5 levels of underground parking. The owner required early building occupancy and, thus, top down construction techniques were needed to shave precious months off the building schedule. 8’ and 10’ diameter drilled shafts with embedded steel columns were installed within the slurry wall perimeter to support building column loads of up to 9,500 kips.
