This was a design build project for the adaptive reuse of the last building remaining at the Westinghouse Electric Plant complex that opened in 1915. The building was acquired by a Chinese consortium that was awarded a contract to build new Orange and Red Line cars for the MBTA. The structure was gutted and renovated to provide corporate offices and storage space. The project was executed through a design-build procurement in which DHK was the architect for Consigli Construction. DHK worked with CRRC and Consigli Construction to develop the office, entry level and storage area layouts and provided a code analysis and coordination with the design team for a new, separate assembly building. The project scope included a new roof, windows, stabilization of the existing exterior brick and concrete masonry fa├žade assembly, renovation to the existing terracotta parapets, upgrade to the exterior wall assembly to provide for energy code requirements, new toilets, new interior office layout and interior wall partitions.
