Window and Facade Install Underway for The Beat
Windows are going in, and new sections of the brick facade are taking shape at The Beat in Dorchester. The redevelopment of the former Boston Globe headquarters will feature 695,000-square-feet of creative office, lab, and retail space. Amenities on-site will include a fitness center, roof deck, mini-basketball court, and a golf simulator. The project will also include a 100-seat restaurant and craft microbrewery.
As part of the renovation, Eversource is working with the development team at Nordblom to support the installation of energy-efficient infrastructure. High-efficiency rooftop air conditioning units will be used to condition and ventilate the building, and an LED lighting scheme will provide superior lighting quality while consuming minimal energy. The Beat will also include one of Eversource’s largest EV projects, featuring more than 40 spaces equipped with ports for charging electric vehicles. Construction is expected to wrap up this coming spring.
