@the_harlo is in the running for @Curbed Boston’s Best New Building of 2017. We agree that the 17-story boutique apartment building in the heart of Boston’s vibrant #Fenway neighborhood—which features street level retail, a boutique fitness center, a yoga deck, a sky terrace with unobstructed views of Fenway Park, and more—is Boston’s best!

Our #DC team removed the top of the 1880s era brick combined #sewer at the American #Geophysical Union (AGU) project in Washington DC. The sewer was strengthened with #geocrete liner prior to excavation, which gives the white appearance next to the brick. The mechanical system will use the wastewater from the sewer to reject heat as part of the Huber Municipal Heat Exchanger, which will help the building reach its goal of #netzero energy. #construction #historic #renovation
Our St. Petersburg Municipal Pier at sunrise. 🌅Upon completion next summer, the 1,380-foot pier will become a destination that provides interactive experiences and programming. #BuildingWhatMatters #construction #florida
In Nashville, our team at the Fifth + Broadway project is currently excavating for a below grade public parking garage, which the mixed-use development will sit on top of when complete. It will include 34 residential stories and 28 office stories. Swipe ➡️ to see what the project will eventually look like! #buildingwhatmatters
This weekend, we completed an incredible feat at our 2+U development project in downtown Seattle—an 11,000-cubic-yard concrete mat pour. That’s enough concrete to fill up 35 million coffee cups, roughly, 50 cups of coffee for every resident of Seattle! #CRE #office #engineering #retail #mixeduse #Seattle #coffee #PNW #concrete #development  #downtownseattle
This is what a successful demolition looks like! This weekend, our team conducted a controlled demolition to bring down the old Kosciusko Bridge for the State of New York through a process called energetic felling. On October 1, 2017, a series of 944 individually shaped small charges were detonated to sever select structural members of the bridge, allowing the 25,290 tons of steel that comprised the remaining structure to collapse on itself. This followed the successful lowering of the 2,400-ton main span of the former bridge in August. Prior to the demolition, the Skanska-led joint venture celebrated the opening of the first of two new bridges that will replace the former #KosciuszkoBridge. #KBridge #engineering #demolition #infrastructure #construction #NYC
In honor of World Green Building Week 2017 (#WGBW17), we are proud to highlight two of our #LivingBuilding projects, which take sustainability to the next level—encompassing this year’s #OurHeroIsZero theme. Bertschi School and Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Brock Environmental Center both meet the Living Building Challenge’s #netzero environmental impact. #greenbuilding #sustainability #buildingwhatmatters  #green #construction
And up it goes! This week, we erected the final of the 2,741 precast concrete pieces of the West Parking Garage at our LaGuardia Central Terminal B project. Work will continue with the interior fit out including electrical, plumbing and elevator systems, and the parking garage is slated for completion in January 2018. #LGA #Aviation #Concrete #NYC #Engineering #Construction #P3
Today, we celebrate the completion of Elizabeth River Tunnels, our first #p3, one year ahead of schedule. Thank you to everyone for your amazing work. We are proud to deliver this award-winning project to Virginians! #tunnels #infrastructure #virginia #buildingwhatmatters
Our #121Seaport is now 100% leased, signifying #SeaportDistrict’s arrival as one of Boston’s most sought-after submarkets and business destinations. Last week, we announced that global tech company PTC will be occupying 250K square feet, and today, we announced that global biopharmaceutical company Alexion will be occupying 150K square feet of the state-of-the-art, elliptical office tower. #121Seaport is located in the heart of Boston’s booming Seaport District, across from District Hall and Seaport Square Green, on Boston’s most sustainable block, which is also home to Skanska’s #101Seaport and #WatermarkSeaport developments. #121Seaport was the site of the #SeaportShipwreck discovery. #CRE #Boston #Sustainable #Office #Pharma #Alexion #RealEstate #Seaport #BostonSeaport #Sustainable
Our team at the 2+U development in downtown #Seattle completed #excavation operations, removing 120,000 cubic yards of soil and rock and installing 130 soldier piles, 530 tie backs and 55,000 square feet of lagging to create the framework for the installation of the 2+U foundation. #CRE
