Hanover CambridgePark luxury apartments were constructed in a podium style construction with 4, wood-framed stories over an elevated concrete deck.  Located in North Cambridge, near the MBTA’s Red Line Alewife station, the complex offers one- and two-bedrooms units, and many high-end amenities including two courtyard spaces with a pool.  As part of an integrated team, BSC was brought on board as the enclosure consultant in the Design Development phase of the project.  BSC evaluated plans and details with a focus on durability and energy performance, and provided feedback on the identified problem areas.  The focus was directed towards water management, infiltration and thermal aspects of the project.  BSC’s scope of work extended into the construction phase to perform building enclosure commissioning that included ensuring construction details were implemented as designed, evaluating on-site enclosure mock-ups and performing enclosure testing.
