Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Graduate Residences
BSC provided civil engineering services to support the redevelopment of a 3.3-acre parcel into new graduate residence housing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). BSC provided civil/site and utilities design, addressing grading, drainage and stormwater management; Article 19 Project Review Special Permit support; and construction phase services for the project. A highlight of BSC’s design is a complex stormwater detention system that stores the difference in pre- and post-development runoff volumes in large underground StormTrap units for 24 hours, and then releases the water via a self-actuated timed control valve system that will provide data to the MIT campus-wide facilities computer networking system as well as hard-copy summary printouts.
