Description:
The new Simmons College School of Management building occupies a good portion of an existing at grade parking lot. A five level underground parking garage was planned to compensate for the lost parking space and to accommodate the additional space needed because of the new building. East Coast Slurry Company was contracted to install the perimeter slurry wall and 26 LBEs as part of a top down construction sequence. The LBEs penetrated up to 25’ of bedrock, requiring a hydromill to excavate the rock.
