Consigli and Fay, Spofford & Thorndike Win Project of the Year Award for Massport Terminal B Parking Garage

BOSTON, MA – The team of Consigli Construction Co., Inc. (Consigli), Fay, Spofford & Thorndike (FST) and Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) was recently honored with the 2012 Building Project of the Year Award for the Terminal B Parking Garage at Boston Logan International Airport by the New England Chapter of the Construction Management Association (CMAA).  The renovated 500,000 square-foot garage received the award for Building Renovation/Modernization projects greater than $40M. This outstanding achievement celebrates a truly collaborative effort by the entire building team of Consigli, FST and Massport.

Working closely with the Massport, the building team completed the complex renovation and environmental improvements in the busy operational garage nearly one year ahead of schedule.

Originally constructed in the 1970’s, the 5-level, pre-cast concrete garage provides 2,700 parking spaces for long-term airport patrons. After over 30 years of heavy use, the garage required significant structural repairs, drainage and environmental improvements in order to extend the life of the building. In addition to the garage and lobby renovations, all new perimeter roads including arrivals and departures roadways and ramps were installed.  Environmental improvements involved the replacement of existing lighting with new energy-efficient LED fixtures in the garage, along roadways and walkways, as well as a new crosswalk lighting and safety system, the installation of 1,024 photovoltaic solar panels on the roof deck, and two 1,000 gallon rainwater harvesting collection tanks to provide water for maintenance use throughout the airport properties.

The CMAA New England Region Chapter holds its annual Project Achievement Awards to recognize exceptional achievement in the New England construction management community. The Awards Committee is composed of owners and professional construction manager who consider outcomes, overall management, safety, quality management, cost and schedule management, complexity, innovation, creativity and customer satisfaction as the basis for the award.
