BSC Group, Inc. has been honored by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) with multiple Engineering Excellence Awards. ACEC/MA celebrated 2020 and 2021 award winners in a joint virtual ceremony at their annual Engineering Excellence Awards Gala on September 30th. BSC Group, along with their clients and project partners, were recognized for two projects in the Bay State:
2020 EEA Bronze Award Winner – EMD Serono’s Sagamore Building Expansion, Billerica, MA
First in the nation. Second in the world. EMD Serono’s Sagamore Building in Billerica has earned the acclaimed WELL Gold certification and is poised to change the way we design buildings by placing people and wellness at the center of the design process. The 30,000 square-foot building expansion project more than doubles the site’s existing office space and accomplishes a complete evolution of the site, while maintaining a unified campus experience. Once a production facility that was no longer meeting the client’s needs, it is now the home of an innovative Class A research and development center.
2021 EEA Bronze Award Winner – Downtown Hudson Rotary and Streetscape, Hudson, MA
As a former industrial town known for shoe manufacturing, Hudson faced many familiar challenges: reduced foot traffic, inadequate parking, and competition from nearby commercial centers. Using its distinctive, signature rotary as a centerpiece for large-scale Complete Streets reconstruction, the Town leveraged a variety of funding sources to create a vibrant, functional downtown that accommodates pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles alike. Today, Hudson is celebrated by Boston Magazine as a “culinary mecca for entrepreneurial restaurateurs priced out of Boston.” Individual elements, like traffic improvements, pedestrian amenities, and linkages to community resources, combine to transform downtown Hudson into a premier Metrowest destination.
