This project required the renovation of the operational MBTA Silverline and Redline station levels at the South Station transit facility located in Boston, Massachusetts. Work included the installation of new surface finishes at walls, floors, stairs and columns, new ceilings and light fixtures. The relocation of certain existing elements was required in order to provide for specified new work, as well as selective demolition throughout active station areas. Additionally, the four existing station kiosks at Dewey Square were removed and replaced with two new elevators and four contemporary head houses. A major architectural feature of this project was the design-build of the four new head houses. The four geometrically challenging head houses required extensive coordination between the concrete foundation, structural steel and multidimensional glazing.

This project demonstrates J.F. White's ability to work with the owner's operational managers in a variety of complex construction phasing situations.
