Construction Update: Bromley-Heath
Envelope and façade repairs are well underway at the Boston Housing Authority’s (BHA) Bromley-Heath Development in Jamaica Plain. Working on a fast track schedule, construction partner Northern Contracting Corporation (NCC) currently has 11 crews tackling mortar grinding, re-pointing, and lintel removal and abatement on three of the residential towers along Center Street. They are working their way expeditiously through the site towards the other 9 buildings.
Good communication is always a high priority for DREAM Collaborative. As project manager, I am onsite for weekly project meetings and walk-throughs to keep abreast of all activities and generate weekly reports in collaboration with WJE, our technical consultant. The BHA has an on-site representative who monitors the work daily and NCC has a host of tenant coordinators on site who keep tenants informed and foster cooperation through the construction process.
Project activities are proceeding smoothly and the team is on schedule to meet the November 2014 construction completion deadline.
