City Hall Plaza Arcade | Boston, Massachusetts

City Hall Plaza Arcade | Boston, Massachusetts

Samiotes Consultants Inc. provided civil engineering services for the arcade project improvements on Boston City Hall Plaza. This project helped define the Cambridge Street edge of the plaza, without completely enclosing the space from the street. The arcade includes three seating platforms extending beyond the existing granite steps down to the plaza. The platforms serve as public seating areas and "stages" for small performances and speakers, as well as display spaces for the farmers market. It was especially important that all walkways and sidewalks continue the paving detail present in City Hall Plaza.

West Roxbury DPW Barn | Boston, Massachusetts

This new facility for the Boston Public Works Department occupies the former location of the Gardner Street landfill. The landfill was capped and is now the home of the Millennium Park recreational facility. The front portion of the former landfill was designated as the location for the DPW barn. SCI designed a gas pump system (with card readers), and a sanitary pump station including a bridge crossing, domestic and fire protection water services, and a stormwater drainage system. SCI was also responsible for the site grading and layout of the entrance roadway to the DPW facility and park.

Austin D. Rhodes Municipal Center | Waltham, Massachusetts

Austin D. Rhodes Municipal Center | Waltham, Massachusetts

Samiotes Consultants Inc. provided land surveying services and site engineering for the city of Waltham. The project included installing stormwater management improvements within the existing Municipal Yard in order to comply with an EPA approved Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan under Phase II of the NPDES permitting program. The project also improved the site’s compliance with the DEP Stormwater Management Guidance. As part of this Phase II compliance, and because it is located outside of city-owned land, the existing materials management area was relocated from the MBTA land to the south of the site to a cleared and previously disturbed area in the northern parcel, east of Chester Brook. While this new development was proposed within a previously degraded portion of the site, stormwater for this area was managed in full compliance with DEP’s Stormwater Management Policy for new construction with a cost-efficient solution.

Hemlock Terrace | Waltham, Massachusetts

Hemlock Terrace | Waltham, Massachusetts

Samiotes Consultants Inc. provided civil engineering and land surveying services for the mitigation of flooding problems associated with the drainage channel adjacent to Hemlock Terrace Park. Investigation of the topography and on site conditions was implemented to conclude that remediation of the swale was the most cost effective and logical approach. The channel was graded to a consistent slope and berm breaks were created to help transmit flow through the area. A headwall and trash rack was designed to accept flow and direct it to the city of Waltham’s existing drainage system.  Approval from the Conservation Commission was gained for this project.
