The Hub on Causeway

Code Red Consultants worked closely with Boston Properties and John Moriarty Associates on this significant mixed-use development that is transforming North Station. The project was erected in the midst of a very heightened awareness of construction fire safety in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. To that end, Code Red Consultants worked hand-in-hand with Boston Properties to develop and implement a pre-incident fire plan that was ever-changing in a project that impacted a transportation hub and a professional athletic arena.

Separately, Code Red Consultants helped building ownership achieve early occupancy while still finalizing construction of two residential/hotel towers above the podium. This was achieved via careful negotiations with city officials, where there was an upfront contract that the fire/life safety systems afforded to building occupants would not be compromised. In this spirit, the firm commissioned the building smoke control systems and achieved the Boston Fire Department approval on their first acceptance test visit.

Code Red Consultants is providing ongoing smoke control special inspection services and NFPA 241, Construction Fire Safety Planning for this multi-building project adjacent and above the very populated North Station and TD Garden.
