Boston seaport construction foundation design

Real estate developers

Our forward-thinking engineering helps developers build resilient harborside properties


  • Three developers turned to Haley & Aldrich for advice on redeveloping Pier 4 in Boston’s booming Seaport neighborhood.
  • As pioneers in the New England geotechnical and environmental engineering industry, we drew on extensive local knowledge, as well as creative thinking, to deliver a site design that accounts for sea level rise and intensifying storms.
  • For one developer, our design saved a significant amount of money in foundation costs while optimizing the number of parking spaces.
  • We also saved on construction time by leveraging our in-house excavation design capabilities and expediting foundation permits.
