New Balance Headquarters at Boston Landing

Location: Brighton, Massachusetts
Owner: New Balance Development
Client: John Moriarty and Associates
Architect: Elkus Manfredi Architects
Engineer: WSP Flack + Kurtz

Project Summary

A 250,000 square foot world headquarters office building, with 65,000 square foot restaurant and retail space along with public amenity space.

Challenge

Providing temporary service for the building that was over 600 feet away from the closest available power source.

Response

State was able to utilize their utility division for an out-of-the-box solution by providing a 13.8 KV primary 1500 KVA transformer. The utility team handled all equipment, rigging, installation, connections and testing of the transformer. Substantial savings were gained through this method as opposed to running several 480 volt primary feeders into the building, replaced by a single feeder to the temporary power distribution system.
