Quincy House Garage Renovation

Harvard University


This project required extreme coordination with multiple subcontractors. Located directly above the food storage room for one of Harvard University’s most frequented dining halls, we removed and replaced existing steel-embedded, elevated concrete slabs at three garage bays and a double slab loading dock. This required significant shoring of the existing columns, foundation walls and other structural elements. In order to achieve this removal and replacement, the existing MEP’s below had to be temporarily supported and rerouted. A new oil and gas separator was added for the garage exhaust system and ran eight stories to the roof. The entire $2.7 Million project had to be completed in just 11 weeks, in time for the students' return to campus.


  • Conducted intensive pre-construction coordination with subcontractors
  • Optimized the schedule in order to meet the aggressive schedule that aligns with Harvard’s academic schedule


  • Install new manhole and oil and gas separator
  • Complete interior fit out
  • Install shoring, structural steel, and concrete at the loading dock
