Dorchester Brewing Co – Boston, MA

This design team delivered an expansive exterior roof deck and rooftop greenhouse with 360-degree city views. A challenging addition to the existing structure:

  • Steel column pierce through the existing concrete roof structure to new & existing pile-supported foundations.
  • A composite steel transfer frame to support the new greenhouse to avoid overloading the existing roof structure.
  • Seismic upgrade using select exterior CMU walls
  • Conceptual design study confirmed project could be completed within budget.
