Chelmsford Department of Public Works
Following a study for a new DPW facility HKT, working with the lead engineering firm, assessed the possible reuse of an existing 90,000 sf building previously used as a distribution center. A multi-phase renovation project was designed with the first phase including renovation of all administrative and personnel area, construction of shops, new access and egress for vehicles, and site related work. A second phase will include bays for maintenance and other related storage needs.
The first phase includes a new public entry with parking, repair of the exterior building envelope and new exterior materials to repair and insulate the single wythe masonry wall. New windows and skylights were added to bring natural light into the building.
