Nitsch Engineering, with offices in Boston, Worcester and Lawrence, was retained by the City of Boston to assist with reinvigorating the Boston Public Library's Johnson Building to make space not only for books, but for people, thereby transitioning from an inward-facing fortress to an inviting public space. To help meet this goal, Nitsch Engineering applied innovative civil engineering techniques on the heavily-trafficked site on the corner of Boylston and Exeter Streets. The firm met the key challenge of solving multiple complex issues within the small site, including recharging vulnerable groundwater levels to maintain building stability, all while keeping the library open and accessible to the public.
"The awards honor this year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments in Massachusetts,"
