J.F. White Contracting was contracted to relocate existing utilities and the installation of new utilities to the proposed Tufts University Science and Engineering Complex. The utilities included water, fire protection, sewer, duct banks, steam/condensate doublewall pipe and chilled water (HPDE) supply and return. J.F. White’s Mechanical Division installed the steam and chilled water pipe with support from the J.F. White Civil group. Several of the utilities crossed city streets and required coordination and permitting from the city. Some of the future site deep drainage piping and drain manholes were installed as part of this project.

The scope also including the installation of the support of excavation for the proposed building construction which included drilled H‐piles and wood lagging, shotcrete and soil nail walls and using traditional pit underpinning of the existing building.
