Children’s Hospital Boston, a world-renown and award winning pediatric hospital located in the Longwood Medical Area of Boston and home to the world’s largest research community at a pediatric medical center, continues to respond to their growing research and clinical space demands.

To support Children’s plans to construct a nine-story medical research, clinical, and retail building in Brookline, Massachusetts, Sanborn Head has provided geotechnical services—including Geotechnical in Situ Specialty testing(GIST) using Drilling Parameter Recorder (DPR), and environmental engineering services from due diligence through design.  Early on, we evaluated environmental and geotechnical premium costs due to challenging subsurface conditions at the property in support of an intricate real estate agreement.  Subsurface complexities including management of contaminated soil and groundwater while providing excavation and foundation support for a five-level below grade parking garage continue to be finalized, all under the purview of the Massachusetts Contingency Plan.
