The Challenge: The project took place at one of the busiest intersections and sidewalks in Boston, all while the building remained fully occupied. There were many surprises with the existing roof deck that were discovered during construction but the project team was able to adjust and keep the project moving with minimal impact to the schedule.

Project Scope:

  • 420 Boylston Street, aka "The Berkeley Building", is a 6 story commercial building constructed in 1905.

  • Wessling Architects was engaged by A.W. Perry to assist with a roof replacement.

  • Existing roof was a ballast EPDM that was coming to the end of its life cycle. The client was proactive and decided to completely remove the existing roof and replace it with a new reinforced adhered EPDM system.
