GE Taps Consigli Construction for Historic Boston Asset Renovations
- May 11, 2017
GE has tapped Consigli Construction Co. to restore and renovate the two historic brick buildings that are part of GE Innovation Point in Boston.
The company will rehabilitate the two, six-story assets that once housed the New England Confectionary Co. Originally built in 1907, the properties total 95,000 square feet that will be home to the new FUSE co-working space for manufacturing innovations for entrepreneurs and small teams, GE Brilliant Career Lab that helps students discover STEM careers and career path mapping, GEO offices and a waterfront bistro.
The campus will be built under the LEED v4 rating, GE’s internal wellness program HealthAhead, and the principles of the WELL Building Standard. The roof level of the buildings will capture rainfall, which will be stored internally for the building’s flushing system and for the landscape irrigation. The roof will also include a terrace with a vegetated green area. As part of the overall project, paved hardscape, lawns and natural vegetation will be created that slope down to the existing Harbor Walk along the Fort Point Channel.
“We’re excited to have Consigli join the team working on GE Innovation Point,” said Ann Klee, vice president, Boston Development and Operations for GE, in prepared remarks. “We’re proud to partner with another Massachusetts-based company as we enter the next phase of this project.”
