Boston University Center for Computing and Data Sciences - Foundation Milestone
12.15.20 On Saturday a major milestone for the Boston University Center for Computing and Data Sciences project was reached with completion of the concrete placement for the tower core mat foundation. The project designed with KPMB, architect and Haley & Aldrich, geotechnical engineer includes a mat slab foundation for both the 20-story tower and 5-story podium. The tower mat foundation from Saturday’s placement consists of 4,200 cubic yards of concrete with thickness ranging from 5 to 9 feet. Utilizing a low carbon concrete mix reduced the embodied carbon impact by 30% from a standard “low-heat” mix. This resulted in a total reduction of over 700 tons of CO2 equivalent from being emitted to the atmosphere.
