ESS Project Receives Preservation Achievement Award

January 22, 2014 – Waltham, Massachusetts – As a member of the Hayden Building project team, ESS is pleased to announce the recognition of the project as a 2013 Preservation Achievement Award winner by the Boston Preservation Alliance.

The Hayden Building, located at 681 Washington Street in Boston, was constructed in 1875 and has served the neighborhood in various roles, including a dental office, jeweler’s, and record shop. Now owned by Historic Boston, Inc., the building was redeveloped into LEED-certified, 2-bedroom apartments.

As part of the project team, ESS was responsible for preparing and submitting improvement plans to the Boston Water and Sewer Commission in order to separate the existing common building utilities between the properties at 681 and 687 Washington Street. In addition, ESS provided stormwater consulting and construction phase services.

“ESS is honored to be recognized for our water resource and engineering design services for this property,” said ESS Practice Leader Bill Chapman. “We look forward to providing future redevelopment services to the Boston area.”
