Roslindale, MA

Green provided civil engineering and landscape architecture services for the renovations of the Roslindale Public Library. The project consisted of renovating the 11,000 SF building and site improvements.

The site improvements included revising the sidewalks that immediately border the building along Washington and Poplar Street to not only provide an ADA access to the main entrance, but also provide planters and wooden benches. In addition, a new terrace and wooden deck was added between the building and Poplar Street. Several new planters were added throughout the project limits as well.

Utility improvements included installing a new 6” fire protection line and 2” domestic water line off Poplar Street; replacing the sewer connection between the building and the sewer main in Washington Street; and adding a proprietary Water Quality Structure to capture and treat the roof runoff prior to discharging to the Stoney Brook Culvert.  

Permitting for the renovations included preparing a Site Plan Application for Boston Water Sewer Commission (BWSC) for the proposed sewer, drain and water utilities including design of a stormwater management report that met both State and BWSC stormwater requirements.
