The Largest Geothermal Project In Boston MA

June 13, 2023

VERTEX is bettering our Boston Community by providing outstanding project advisory for one of the largest USGBC LEED Platinum projects in the region. Geothermal energy, harnessing the heat generated within the Earth’s core, has emerged as a promising solution to address the growing demand for renewable energy sources. Geothermal projects involve tapping into this vast reservoir of thermal energy and utilizing it for heating, cooling, and power generation purposes.

The AEC industry has embraced geothermal technology due to its numerous advantages, such as reducing reliance on fossil fuels, minimizing greenhouse gas emissions, and offering long-term energy cost savings. By incorporating geothermal systems into building design and construction, professionals in the AEC sector are playing a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable future.

VERTEX served as the Owner’s Project Manager for the new Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences Project for the past three years. Now complete, the Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences is truly a unique project for its Net Zero technologies including 31 geothermal wells and USGBC LEED Platinum rating, just to name a few.

This 19-story, nearly 350,000 square foot building, is the tallest building on campus at 297 feet high. Designed by the Toronto architectural firm KPMB Architects, the building’s iconic form resembling a stack of books will feature a series of terraced platforms, intended for small-group interactions and green technologies to advance BU’s Climate Action Plan and to account for the risks posed by increases in sea level and climate change.

The following video on this project was presented at the 2023 EBC Awards for Climate Change Project of the Year and showcases the innovative design, construction techniques, and benefits it brings to the built environment.
