About Haley & Aldrich
70 Blanchard Road, Suite 204, Burlington, MA
From a foundation of technical excellence, Haley & Aldrich seeks to create more value for our clients while reducing their overall project costs. We use novel approaches to engineering and environmental challenges, including more efficient processes and new ways of applying technology. In some cases that means not doing things the way they are usually done in our industry, or the way our clients typically approach a project.
We also innovate in our practice by looking beyond the technical challenges to consider how various stakeholders impacted by a project will measure success. We consider the needs of various regulatory agencies as well as the impact on the environment, communities, and neighborhoods. We factor those needs with our deep understanding of the value our clients desire to create for their organizations and stakeholders. In this “whole-system approach,” the more stakeholders who are satisfied, the more successful and more sustainable a project will be.
Core to how we operate is our commitment to having our best people on the most challenging opportunities, and the right people doing the right work—safely. To do this, we’ve built one team that works together across all U.S. geographies to solve complex problems above and below ground. We serve clients from multiple offices across the country while providing consistent and seamless delivery.

Construction Nearly Complete for GE’s Renovation at Necco Court
Months after scrapping plans for a larger tower on the site, GE is wrapping up construction on renovations to the historic buildings on Necco Court. After deciding not to move forward with the new construction aspect of the project GE sold the site to Alexandria Real Estate and signed a 12-year lease for the warehouse buildings. The 100+-year-old brick and beam warehouses are currently being fully renovated and will include a bistro and modern office space for around 250 GE employees.
As part of the project the Necco Court bridge is being restored with half of the bridge’s facade being replaced with new metal, while the side facing the Fort Point Channel will be replaced with glass. Gensler is the architect on the project and Eversource provided energy efficiency solutions. Eversource is supporting a number of energy-efficient building elements in this project with incentive dollars, including energy-efficient lighting and lighting controls, high performing chillers, pumps, windows, walls and roof materials with high insulating values. Construction is expected to wrap up in the coming months.

401 Congress (Parcel A2) Officially Under Review
BGI has filed the PNF for the 401 Congress Street project in the Seaport on Parcel A2 and the Triangle Parcel. The proposed project would include a total of 675,000 square feet between two buildings, primarily Class A office space with significant space for public and cultural uses.
On Parcel A2 an 18-story tower would contain around 585,000 square feet of office space starting on level three. The building would have two entrances, one from Congress Street and one from the World Trade Center Avenue Viaduct. Both entrances will be connected by an enhanced public space with a 24/7 public elevator and grand sweeping stairs, acting as a nexus between the two levels. A new and elevated pedestrian bridge spanning the I-90 ramp will connect the Office Building to the Triangle Parcel.
The two-story building on the Triangle Parcel would consist of approximately 30,000 square feet to be used as programmable publicly accessible space. Additionally, the Project includes approximately 30,000 square feet of surface improvements along the World Trade Center Avenue Viaduct and beyond the Project’s property lines.
