MBTA Iron Horse Park


W.T. Rich was hired to manage the construction of a new, 2-story Iron Horse Park Operations Control Center that includes a full-story clerestory above the roof level and a steel-framed, braced structure. A 2-way structural concrete slab was implemented on the first floor, with concrete metal decking at the second floor. Metal roof decks were constructed on the low and high roofs of the building. The building envelope consists of weathering steel rainscreens, a modified bitumen roofing system, and curtain wall glazing at the lobby and clerestory.

Exterior work included new site grading, site walls, and the paving and striping of a parking lot that is located in the front of the building. W.T. Rich administered the installation of a new stormwater drainage line, drainage storage and treatment system, as well as supporting site utilities. A new landscape and irrigation system was enforced throughout this project.
