Millennium Tower and Burnham Building (Formerly Filene’s) Construction Services, Boston

Millennium Partners
Boston, Massachusetts

The Millennium Tower and Burnham Building Redevelopment project (former Filene’s Building) is viewed as a crowning achievement in the rebirth of Downtown Crossing. Occupying the open space is a new 60-story glass tower featuring luxury condominiums, office space, and retail space occupied by Primark clothing shop and Roche Bros. grocery chain. HSH’s Construction Services group worked hand-in-hand with Suffolk Construction to aid in the construction of this challenging project on the former Filene’s site.  With half an acre of laydown area, managing the logistics of construction vehicles, supplies, and services was a high priority.  HSH facilitated periodic closures of city streets; relocated MBTA facilities; designed work zone safety elements for high pedestrian areas; and prepared site safety plans in collaboration with the Boston Fire Department, including standpipe locations, evacuation plans, and muster areas.
