Superstructure construction is off to a strong start at Pierce Boston. The underground parking structure is complete, and the tower’s 30-story concrete superstructure has risen four floors. The first two floors, which will contain retail space, are fully framed. The construction team is using a Peri Skydeck system to frame concrete construction for each new floor. Pierce Boston will feature 28 stories of residential units, including 240 rental apartments and 109 condominiums, and 20,000 square feet of retail across the first two floors.
Pierce Boston, named for its architecture that "pierces" the sky, is rising fast! Construction of Pierce Boston’s 30-story frame has begun. A tower crane has been installed; J. Derenzo Companies is at work building the tower crane’s lagging pit to protect the crane and surrounding pipelines. J. Derenzo Companies is also performing excavations for installation of plumbing at Pierce Boston.

Pierce Boston’s elevator core has risen two stories. A Peri Skydeck formwork system has been installed along one end of Pierce Boston’s future frame to pour concrete for the building's second story. S&F Concrete is Pierce Boston's concrete contractor; John Moriarty & Associates is Pierce Boston's general contractor.

At the frame’s opposite end, a wall is under construction for the Peri system’s second half.

The Peri system will soon extend all the way to the wall, and concrete for Pierce Boston's second story will be poured.

The Peri system will frame the concrete pour for Pierce Boston's second story. Concrete will be poured along the top of the system's decking and along support pillars beneath. The following is an animation showing concrete poured along a Peri system:
Once the concrete has settled, the same Peri system will be used to construct all 30 of Pierce Boston’s stories. Concrete has already been poured along some of Pierce Boston's second story support pillars.

We got to climb to the top of the Peri system's decking, where we saw the construction team preparing concrete anchors in anticipation of pouring concrete to construct Pierce Boston’s second story. These anchors will frame third story support pillars.

At the top, we found more Peri system decking panels that will be used to construct the full Peri system decking for Pierce Boston’s second story concrete pour.

The following is a video in which Joel Hagan of S&F Concrete explains the Peri system:
From the top of the Peri system decking, we saw freshly poured concrete along what will be a loading dock for Pierce Boston. Pierce Boston's underground parking structure, partially located beneath the future loading lock, is complete.
