Description: PWD Bridges and Buildings Division was tasked with designing a salt shed for the District 9 yard in East Boston to protect the salt pile from the elements. PWD constructed a 70’x75’ salt shed at District 9 yard located on East Eagle St. The pre-engineered structure consisted of aluminum parts to prevent erosion and the structure was placed on top of a precast concrete blocks foundation. The site work and foundation layout were performed by PWD Staff and the Structure was installed by Cora Electric.
Description: Phase I – Millennium Park -. The park is a former landfill that has been converted into 100 acres of trails, ball fields, and picnic areas. It consists of six miles of handicapped-accessible walking trails, playing fields, a canoe launch, and a nature trail.
Phase II – The City of Boston is reconstructing the existing natural turf athletic fields located behind the West Roxbury Education Complex, located at 1205 Veterans of Foreign Wars Parkway, Boston, MA 02132.
As part of this reconstruction, the existing fields will be replaced with new artificial turf athletic fields consisting of one football field, one baseball field, one softball field, and one multi-use field. The project will also construct a new 6-lane paved running track with spectator stands, three tennis courts, two half-court basketball courts and provide the various associated field event appurtenances along with a new, energy-efficient lighting system. New handicap accessible pathways will be constructed to provide access to the various athletic field areas as well as to the adjacent Millennium Park and the school parking lot and access drive will also be reconstructed as part of the project.
