Belmont Municipal Light Substation
Contract Value: $7,200,000
Duration: 12 months
Architect: Nelson Architects
Owner: Town of Belmont
Scope of Work
Boston Building & Bridge was selected as the general contractor to build a new electrical substation for the Town of Belmont. This significant investment in a new Municipal Light substation is expected to result in increased electrical capacity and more economical electricity for the town and its residents.
This project consisted of the construction of a new steel-structured building with brick veneer and masonry back-up, including brick veneer and masonry transformer enclosures.
Additional features of the project include site work, site drainage structures, landscaping, pre-cast concrete plank, steel trolley crane, and complete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
“If there is one word I would use to describe Boston Building & Bridge, it is “Integrity.” If this firm makes a commitment you can be guaranteed that it will get done. From our very first meeting to kick off the Blair Pond Substation construction, the Boston Building & Bridge team demonstrated the organizational skills that are fundamental to the success of a complex project. Out of the gate, they identified critical factors along the path that could have put the schedule at risk. As an example, they were proactive and stayed on top of complicated permitting requirements that in some instances involved the MBTA. All in all, the Boston Building & Bridge team met the deadlines for an aggressive schedule, produced quality workmanship and did so with a commendable safety record. The urban location of the job site, with three commercial abutters in close proximity, posed a significant challenge. It is to the team’s credit that they were able to maintain open communications with the neighbors and preserve a positive relationship throughout a yearlong project. Given the opportunity, I would recommend Boston Building & Bridge as the general contractor on any future project that serves the interests of the town.”
