Case Study

Washington on the Square

Client:

Nordblom Management, Inc.

Description:

A two-story parking garage built in the 1970s was re-built with the addition of a third level that includes 20 additional parking spaces as well as a garden roof at Nordblom's Washington in the Square condominium property in Brookline, MA. With over 3 years of project coordination, Meridian provided survey, planning, design, and permitting services to assist in all aspects of the projects' design. The design consisted of erosion control, slope stabilization, drainage, design, and landscaping for the area outside of the garage. The Green Roof design incorporated a concrete paver walking path, synthetic grass turf and elevated planting beds. Brookline officials, Planning Board, Board of Appeals and Building Department enthusiastically embraced the green roof landscape designed by the multi-discipline team assembled by Nordblom for this innovative project.

Throughout design and construction Meridian advanced the design detailing and coordination between the projects Architect, Structural Engineer, Mechanical Engineers, Contractor and Client.
