Seaport Square, a 23-acre LEED ND project in the heart of Boston’s Innovation District, will be one of the largest sustainable neighborhoods in the US. The development program for this project includes 8.4 million square feet of residences, shops, restaurants, cultural and educational institutions, hotels, open spaces, a business district with research and office space, and 2.3 million square feet of parking. Nitsch Engineering is providing land surveying, civil engineering, and permitting services for the infrastructure of the entire Seaport Square site, and for most of the individual parcels as they are developed.
As the civil engineers for the overall master infrastructure planning, Nitsch Engineering designed new public and private streets, and performed a hydraulic analysis of the drainage system for the area to facilitate its design. We are assisting in the permitting process for the Public Improvement Commission (PIC), Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC), Chapter 91, Wetlands, and Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the overall 23 acres, as well as for most of the individual parcel developments. Our scope of services also includes design of new utilities, site and roadway layout, stormwater management, groundwater recharge design, construction specifications, construction administration services, and public hearings/meetings attendance and presentations.
