Construction Update - July 29th
Eversource Gas will be installing the new gas line into the building near the Rogers Loading dock. In order to perform their work, Eversource will need to excavate in Rogers Street to bring the new gas line into the building. Eversource will take lane at a time to dig across the Street and understand that Rogers Street is a 'construction one way'.
Other work on site will includes selective demolition of the roof on the Charles portion of the building along with spray on fire proofing, excavation, and electric work inside of the building.
Please see the two- week construction look ahead schedule for the week beginning: 8/1/22 at Charles Park in Cambridge, MA.
Week of 8/1/22 – 8/5/22
- Select Demo will continue to remove demolition debris utilizing the loading dock off of Rogers Street. This work will continue all week.
- Select Demo will remove demolition debris from the building using their telehandler (mini crane). The telehandler will reach up into the loading areas on each of the floors of the building and will remove debris into the dumpsters in the courtyard lay down area. This work will continue all week.
- Manganaro Drywall will continue to receive deliveries of drywall framing and sheathing in the Rogers Courtyard. Installation of exterior sheathing will continue at the perimeter of the Rogers mechanical penthouse.
- Deliveries will continue into the Rogers Courtyard to continue to load the building with materials
- TG Gallagher will continue to receive deliveries of pipe and mechanical equipment through the Rogers Courtyard.
IMPORTANT NOTE: There is no ‘after hours’ work or Saturday work scheduled for this week as of the time of this notice. This is subject to change due to weather and scheduling needs.
Logistics / Impact:
- There will be increased truck traffic on Rogers Street with trucks accessing the loading dock and the courtyard lay down area for deliveries and dumpster swaps.
- There will be regular periods of traffic stoppage while trucks pull in and pull out of the site.
- The temporary gas fired heaters located around the building run to heat throughout the building as needed to keep the building sufficiently warm to prevent pipes from freezing.
Work will occur on site from 7:00am – 6:00pm (Per the City of Cambridge Construction noise ordinance). After hours work may occur if approved with a ‘off hours’ work permit.

Outside Contractors / City of Cambridge Work:
Please note that outside contractors such as Eversource, National Grid, Comcast, Verizon, the City of Cambridge, etc. will require access to their infrastructure in and around the area of Charles Park. We are not always privy to this work, nor do we control this work, but we will do our best to coordinate our work the best we can with the work that is going on in the neighborhood.
Please note that outside delivery services such as UPS, FedEx, Amazon, Uber, Lyft, Grub Hub, Door Dash, trash services, etc. will continue to make their deliveries to the area surrounding Charles Park.
