Feldman’s Headquarters – 152 Hampden Street

Rarely does the opportunity to practice what you preach come along like the one at 152 Hampden Street. Built in 1856, the old brick and beam structure made for an interesting solution to Feldman’s need for a new head office. For the team at Feldman, skilled at applying the methods of smart survey to all their clients’ projects, the Victorian Eclectic-style factory building and warehouse was just the type of project they could shine their collective skills and knowledge on.

Used to supplying 3d laser scanning, BIM, and conventional forms of survey services for others, Feldman wasted no time in putting every aspect of smart survey to work when the decision was made to seek a permanent home for its own staff and equipment.

Smart Survey in Practice

Believing what you tell your clients about smart survey helps, but when the time comes to collect data for your own future headquarters, knowing how to get it right from the ground up becomes part of the lasting showcase of the firm. That’s why Feldman was there every step of the way from due diligence to permitting and throughout the renovation of the former machine shop and piano factory.

Scanning the building inside and out at multiple phases throughout the project meant everything from permitting to design went smoothly and according to the plans. And with that type of security and stability on the project from the start, it’s no wonder that the project was completed in time for the September, 2016 move.

Certainly, the building at 152 Hampden has put a stylish roof over the heads of the team at Feldman. But in return, those same professionals meticulously gathered enough data on the structure to ensure its vitality as a landmark headquarters for years and years to come.

Now imagine what smart survey could do for your next project.

Congress Square

Described aptly as a building within a building, the development of Congress Square is the type of highly complex project where Feldman’s smart survey methods literally shine through on every level. In a move that will transform both a building and a neighborhood, Congress Square reinvents five iconic interconnected buildings with a bold new vision that sparks intellect and creativity: seven stories of glass curtain wall are being added above a totally redeveloped existing structure to allow the creation of residential spaces where there are currently few, but the demand is already high.

To ensure that 14 super-columns fit through the existing building and support the seven stories of curtain wall being added above it, Feldman has been involved in the entire life cycle of the project from gathering data for permitting to 3D laser scanning, BIM, and supplying construction engineering control.

GE Headquarters

When you’re called to work on a high visibility project like the new General Electric Headquarters at Fort Point Channel, smart survey is what you deliver from the very first day on the job. That’s why Feldman began gathering data at the old Boston wharf property to facilitate the creation of permitting and design documents that would allow the incorporation of two historic warehouse buildings connected to a new 12-story glass structure into the overall GE Campus.

On what used to be an unused parcel of land, a worldwide headquarters, recognized for its innovation and accuracy, will now grow. That’s why it’s our distinct honor that when GE needed a survey firm for the life cycle of this platinum-level project, it was Feldman that answered the call.

Harvard Science Center

Built back in 1970, the Harvard University Science Center became the focus of a university upgrade and improvement project. The facility—comprised of a library, several computer labs, and a student commons—had little in the way of existing site plans.

In order for the redesign to occur with absolute accuracy, Feldman was called in to supply a trustworthy base in the form of existing site plans and initial BIM for design phase and coordination.

Ralph Lauren

Shawmut Design and Construction engaged Feldman Land Surveyors for the fit out of Ralph Lauren’s 35,000-square foot Polo flagship store and restaurant on 5th Avenue—where the world’s most brand conscious gather to shop and luncheon.

To assist in the planning and construction of this tailor-made project, our firm provided 3D laser scanning; Revit modeling of the core and shell; and modeling of the MEP structures.
