Daniel Marr & Son Installs Steel At Children’s Hospital-Brookline Site


Boston Children’s Hospital is expanding its facilities and care outside of its Longwood campus to One Brookline Place and Two Brookline Place. The project will allow for patients and families to receive ambulatory-clinic care in a less congested and more convenient neighborhood setting, located near Rte. 9 and close to the Brookline Village MBTA Green Line station. Suffolk Construction is the general contractor and Daniel Marr & Son (DM&S) has been contracted by Canadian steel fabricator Beauce Atlas to install steel and metal decking for the new construction.

May through June, DM&S completed the steel erection at One Brookline Place, a 47,000 s/f, six-story expansion of an existing medical office building. The addition will tie into the existing building’s lobby on all floors and serve as a new wing when it opens. On site, 30 ironworkers installed approximately 850 pieces of steel weighing 400 tons using a mobile crawler crane.  At this writing, work is being done to complete the metal deck and detail work, as well as installing the exterior brick lintels.

In June, DM&S began the steel erection next door at Two Brookline Place, an 182,500 s/f, eight-story, mixed-use building with medical office and ambulatory care uses on upper floors and retail space on the ground floor. DM&S is installing approximately 2,000 pieces of steel weighing 1,750 tons using a tower crane. Steel work is expected to be completed in August.
