ACEC/MA Announces Nitsch Engineering as a Silver Excellence Award Winner
Nitsch won for their work on the Christian Science Plaza in Boston's Back Bay.
By: PR First
Nitsch Engineering provided civil engineering and land surveying services for the revitalization of the historically significant The First Church of Christ, Scientist plaza, which encompasses approximately 10 acres in Boston's Back Bay and has protected Landmark status by the Boston Landmarks Commission. The Church wanted to embed their mission into the site's redesign: be less wasteful, be conscious of history, and be welcoming to all. The project team uncovered decades-old drainage and plumbing techniques and identified long-term ineffectual water use. They then prioritized environmental sustainability in the restoration and repair of the plaza to better serve the Church's community.
