130 Brookline street
Building Envelope Technologies (BET) was awarded and presented the Preservation Award for our work with assisting on the restoration and renovation of the historic building enclosure at 130 Brookline Street owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Investment Management Company. As the building program is understood, the existing structures at 130 Brookline Street, and 17 Tudor Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are to be renovated and modified to accommodate new tenant occupancy. The renovation program is anticipated to include new fenestration components, exterior wall repair and restoration, roofing, and potential re-cladding of limited building areas. BET is to provide consulting services as appropriate for the analysis of the existing construction conditions and the design integration of new building systems. A full scale façade restoration project was put into motion. BET was retained to develop design documents for the full restoration of the building façade and the replacement of the windows. BET prepared detailed specifications, plans, and detail drawings, and managed the bid phase of the project. BET provided construction observation services from the inception of the investigation through the final completion of the project. BET is honored to have been selected as building envelope consultant on this historic restoration project and to have this award presented to the company by the City of Cambridge.
