South Coast Improvement, Co. Completes New Construction Project for Equity Residential’s 660 Washington Apartments

Oct 8, 2021 | News

South Coast Improvement Company (SCIC), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently completed a renovation for Equity Residential, 660 Washington Street in Boston, Massachusetts. The project was a conversion of storage units into co-working office and conference room space for residents at the luxury, high-rise 660 Washington Apartments located in Boston’s Theatre District.

“With more and more people working remotely, Equity Residential wanted to give its tenants a work-from-home option without taking up space in their home,” said Tom Quinlan, president of SCIC.  “The conversion of 3,000 square feet of storage units provided telecommuting and self-employed residents with first class workspace options.”

The renovation featured: 14 individual work offices; four common space co-working  desks, one conference room; two private, soundproof phone booths; one lounge area; one work bar station with customer butcher block countertops; new lights; full mechanical/electrical/plumbing system; HVAC/fire alarm; a common area kitchenette; and a DIRTT Modular System installed for flexible workspace design.

SCIC completed work at 660 Washington Apartments in nine weeks, finishing in August 2021.
