The new Apple Retail Store at 815 Boylston Street is a three-story, 21,350-square-foot flagship store and Apple’s largest retail space to date. The building includes green building elements such as natural lighting, a green roof, and rainwater harvesting. Nitsch Engineering provided land surveying, civil engineering, and transportation engineering services. Our land surveyors conducted an initial ALTA/ACSM Land Title survey of the site and full property line and topographic surveys that included detail on the building’s roof, the full width of the abutting roadway, and utilities. Our transportation engineers provided initial consulting services, and our civil engineers designed the site utilities, grading, and layout. We also permitted the project with the Boston Public Improvement Commission and the Boston Water and Sewer Commission, and coordinated the site sidewalk improvements. The project is located within the City of Boston Groundwater Overlay district, and Nitsch Engineering helped to coordinate the groundwater recharge system located beneath the store’s foundation (actual design of system by Haley and Aldrich). During construction, we provided construction administration services and additional survey services to the contractor.
