The Zaino + Associates team provided Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing  systems  design services for the historical renovation of an existing church located at 19 Isabella Street, Boston, MA. The project involved transforming the church into a new high-rise structure featuring high-end condominiums.  

How did we add value to the construction process?

We executed a strategic relocation of the emergency generator. This vital component was shifted from its original position on the roof to a new location inside the building at grade level. This innovative adjustment not only optimized the overall MEP system but also resulted in substantial cost savings for the client, exceeding $100,000. 

How did you advocate for the client?

 Collaborating closely with the design team, we advocated for the preservation of existing building elements, notably retaining the multi-story APEX unit, which features a remarkable 1.5-story glass ceiling. This approach not only respected the historical significance of the structure but also contributed to a more sustainable and economical project outcome.
