The Firm 

AEA is an internationally recognized firm of architects, 
designers and planners, with offices in Canada, the 
United States and abroad. The firm was established in 
Vancouver in 1972 from the former firm of Erickson- 
Massey, in practice since 1963. A Montreal office of the 
firm was opened in 1965 to service projects at Expo '67 
and moved to Toronto in 1970. In 1978, a Middle East 
office was opened in Kuwait for the planning of the new 
town centre of Fintas, and in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for 
the management of the new Foreign Ministry Head- 
quarters and other major projects in the Kingdom. In 
1980, the firm won a developer competition for the 
11-acre "Bunker Hill" project in downtown Los Angeles 
and opened its American offices in 1981. Projects com- 
pleted by AEA frequently establish precedents in de- 
sign. The firm has received many professional, civic 
and international awards and honours for its work. 

AEA provides professional services in architecture and 
interior design, urban design, planning, programming, 
and project management to all levels of government, 
institutions, corporations, developers and private 
clients. Architectural commissions executed by the 
firm include government offices, judicial courts and 
offices, universities, museums, concert halls and 
theatres, houses of worship, exhibition pavilions, com- 
mercial buildings, hotels and tourist facilities, transit 
stations, research laboratories and warehouses, hous- 
ing complexes, and private residences. 

AEA has also been involved in large-scale planning, 
urban design, and master planning projects for rec- 
reational, transportation, tourism and development 
complexes, as well as commissions for major city de- 
velopments, waterfronts, coastal development and 
town centres. Commissions include the master plan- 
ning and design of several universities and the prog- 
ramming, master planning and design of large hos- 

AEA continually studies architectural and design tradi- 
tions from many lands and cultures and strives to in- 
corporate the best spirit of those traditions in its inter- 
national work. It is this global consciousness, reflected 
in AEA's projects, which has earned the firm a reputa- 
tion for excellence. 


The FYactice 

AEA undertakes projects of any scale or type which, by 
their nature, lend themselves to creative and often pre- 
cedent-setting solutions. Design and planning com- 
missions start with a careful study of the client and user 
needs, including the project schedule and budget, all of 
which is prerequisite information in effective 
architectural and planning work. The firm also seeks to 
determine the role the project plays in relation to its 
environmental, historical, social and economic con- 

Following personal contact with clients to explore their 
needs and interests, AEA staff prepares a programme. 
This document organizes and describes the client's re- 
quirements in written, tabulated and diagrammatic 
form. Each project design usually starts with a small 
team of architects who work directly with Arthur Erick- 
son to set the ground rules and subsequently the basic 
conceptual direction. The design is developed gradual- 
ly from conceptual sketches through increasing levels 
of detail. Models often are used from the outset. 

The project team and Arthur Erickson meet on a regular 
basis throughout the design process. Between these 
work sessions, the team explores various alternatives 
and ideas to ensure that every possibility has been 
examined, and its design and cost implications under- 
stood. The intent is to start a design without preconcep- 
tions, and to keep all design possibilities open for as 
long as possible before making the concept final. 

Particular care is taken to ensure that design integrity is 
maintained through the working drawing and con- 
struction phases. To achieve the required continuity, 
the project architect and the core design team, au- 
gmented as required by more technically oriented staff. 

normally will carry a job through all phases of work to 
completion. During these latter phases, Arthur Erick- 
son meets with the team on a continual basis to ensure 
that there is an efficient transition throughout the de- 
sign process. 

To encourage the most appropriate and creative use of 
the talents of the firm, and to allow the acceptance of 
commissions of all sizes, AEA has adopted a flexible 
management approach. While certain senior members 
have clearly 'defined roles, the team structure and the 
assignment of responsibilities are tailored to suit the 
needs of each specific project. Each office is organized 
as an independent administration with Arthur Erickson 
personally involved in all stages of the design of all 
projects. Each office is managed by associate senior 
architects, who report directly to Mr. Erickson on all 
management matters. 

At the start of an assignment, one or two senior staff 
members and Arthur Erickson work with the client to 
define the scope and nature of the project and deter- 
mine the appropriate staffing and scheduling. A senior 
architect is responsible, with Arthur Erickson's direc- 
tion, for supervising a project from inception to com- 
pletion. His tasks include client and user liaison, orga- 
nization of the architectural team's day-to-day activi- 
ties, consultant coordination, and dealing with the au- 
thorities who have jurisdiction over certain aspects of 
the project. If the scale of the project warrants, he also 
will assist in any coordination required with project or 
construction management firms. 

Team members are assigned as needed for the nature 
and stage of the project. AEA ensures that a variety of 
technical experts is available on staff to provide the 
necessary pool of resources for the team approach. 
The firm has a staff of more than 100 professionals with 
expertise in the fields of Urban and Regional Planning, 
Programming and Feasibility Studies, Architectural De- 
sign, Contract Documentation, Interior Design, Land- 
scape Design, Quantity Surveying, Construction Su- 
pervision, and Project Management. 

AEA calls on the expertise of the finest outside consult- 
ing services for the prime engineering disciplines, 
structural, mechanical and electrical, and for cost esti- 
mating. If the project demands, more specialized con- 
sultants may be retained in acoustics, transportation, 
lighting, special programming, fire safety, elevator and 
conveyor systems. 

After building completion, the firm encourages 
ongoing user feedback. Monitoring and assessing the 
building in use is a continuing part of the overall pro- 
cess. The knowledge gamed from this dialogue is used 
to great advantage in subsequent projects. 

The diversity of the AEA staff, coupled with the continu- 
ity and team spirit which results from the project team 
approach, works to the advantage and best interests of 
the client. Staff members from many nations and 
ethnic backgrounds are attracted to AEA by the firm's 
reputation for creative work and high quality stan- 
dards. AEA is proud of the diversity of its staff, which 
serves to broaden the collective experience of the firm 
and encourages a lively exchange of ideas from diffe- 
rent traditions.

courthouse soon to be recycled into a city cultural center. On a site long proposed 
as a civic square, the architects have woven through the complex a splendid park 
and public promenade. The design establishes for Vancouver a new emphasis on 
lower density and pedestrian access and vitality. And as the photo on the next

elements of fantasy, offering splendid spaces inside and out Perhaps above all it is 
wonderfully spirited. . . . —Janet Nairn

The grand scale and the 
complexity of Robson 
Square and The Law 
Courts — a horizontal three- 
block-long complex in the heart 
of Vancouver — singles it out as 
one of the most important and 
ambitious urban re-designs in 
years In concept and in reality 
the project is seen as a three- 
dimensional park spine bordered 
by two prime north-south streets 
(Hornby and Howe Streets) and 
just south of the prime east-west 
artery (Georgia Street), a site long 
proposed as a civic square 
Planned in relation to a broader 
downtown context the project is, 
in fact, the first major step 
toward the city planning depart- 

ment's objective of lower density 
and greater emphasis on pedes- 
trian amenities 

Though conceived as an 
integrated whole, each of the 
three blocks of the project is dis- 
tinctive and different The grada- 
tion of the site reinforces a pat- 
tern of "movement" that flows 
from the great inclined glass roof 
and exposed structural framing 
of the Law Courts building, 
across the street via the linear 
pool of water and cascading 
waterfalls, to three tiers of zig- 
zagging steps which lead to a 
sunken plaza This plaza contin- 
ues under Robson Street (see site 
plan) before rising again in front 
of the old courthouse, at the 

northern end of the three blocks 
(These three blocks are locally 
referred to by the city planners' 
designations as Block 51 for the 
old courthouse square. Block 61 
for Robson Square and the pro- 
vincial government offices, and 
Block 71 for the Law Courts 
building ) 

While the three blocks are 
owned by the British Columbia 
provincial government, the old 
courthouse will be leased to the 
city for complete interior renova- 
tion and some exterior additions 
to transform it into a cultural cen- 
ter The rotunda and other main 
floor spaces will be used for an 
information center, and exhibi- 
tion and meeting/conference 

rooms The L-shaped portion of 
the building will include the Van- 
couver Art Gallery, a small the- 
ater, and other performing 
spaces, filling out approximately 
120,000 square feet. The formal 
plaza with fountain located on 
the Georgia Street elevation 
(again, see site plan) will continue 
to be used for important civic 
occasions Also planned is an 
underground rapid transit station 
that will connect to pedestrian- 
retail malls existing beneath 
neighboring Pacific Centre and 
Eaton's department store 

The main outdoor space, 
and therefore the main public 
focus, of the complex is Robson 
Square (right) named after the 








.i.. 'fefc^l/ 

19th century British Columbia 
Premier John Robson. Its sunken 
plaza is a year-round mecca for 
outdoor activities During the 
summer, it serves as an extension 
of restaurants bordering the pla- 
za, and as an exhibition space 
During the winter, a portion ol 
the larger court is used as an 
ice-skating arena, protected by a 
circular dome Robson Street has 
been closed-off to automobile 
traffic and designated for only 
buses; and street closure may be 
extended to other selected 
streets in the neighborhood Be- 
low Robson Square is the Media 
Centre with display space, meet- 
ing rooms, two auditoriums, and 
related audio-visual equipment 

The three-block-long civic 
< omplex IS anchored by the 
Ijw Courts building (top in 
site plan and photo left), and 
a landmark courthouse (bottom 
in site plan and top photo 
above) In between is the 
nearly camouflaged provincial 
government office building, 
covered by a pool ol water, 
which flows over waterfalls 
and eventually to an 
underground pool for recycling. 
The public space, with 
unexpected pastoral spots, is 
intricately woven throughout, 
and highlighted by its formal 
sunken arena (center photo 
above), and cascading tiers of

The provincial government 
office building, also located in 
this center block, maintains a low 
profile — indeed, it is nearly ob- 
scured, except for entrances, by 
a series of gardens and terraces, 
and streams of water flowing 
over the building This portion is 
set back 150 feet from Robson 
Street, and gradually steps up to 
a maximum of three stories at the 
south end (near Smithe Street) In

ter and support facilities, plus

The toe jl point ol the complex 

is the Law Courts building. 

with Its strong exposed concrete 

structural framing and soaring 

glass root sloping to the western 

elevation The strength of 

these forms and the terracing 

so prominent in the design is 

seen at the Nelson Street 

entrance (right), and echoed 

in the interiors (above) This 

layering is also reflected on 

the eastern elevation (top left 

and section ) Careful detailing 

includes the extension of the 

open truss as a root border 

with sliver-like structural framing 

(top above) 

30,000 square feet of public cir- 
culation and retail space fronting 
the sunken plaza Of this 380,000 
gross square feet total, only 
100,000 square feet is above 

In contrast, the new Law 
Courts building is the^ most strik- 
ing visual element of the complex 
(with 669,000 gross square feet) 
Set upon a podium two stories 
above street level, at the highest 
point of the site, the building's 
glass roof dominates the compo- 
sition. To maintain the relation- 
ship of scale between the new 
building and the older court- 
house at the other end of the 
complex, the roof level of the 
new building was kept at approx- 

imately the same height of the 
dome of the landmark building 

The strong exposed post- 
and-beam structural elements at 
both ends of the new courthouse 
only hint at what's to come in the 
interiors. Once inside, the sharply 
defined tiers of columns prome- 
nade down the full length of a 
wide public concourse, under the 
glass roof which is supported by 
an intricate space truss. The full 
visual impact, however, is not 
perceived until one recognizes 
the public corridor terraces step- 
ping upward. All levels are filled 
with daylight — even on the noto- 
rious number of gray days in 
Vancouver On bright, clear 
days, playful shadows are cast by 

the space truss. 

While these public spaces 
were critical to the architects' 
design concept, they were a gen- 
erous gesture on the part of the 
client, for the purpose of the 
building is, of course, to house 
courtrooms and support facilities 
for judges and lawyers But the 
gesture was worthwhile the con- 
course is a breathtaking experi- 
ence for the first-time visitor, and 
a continuing delight for the daily 
user The public areas appear vir- 
tually free of security restrictions 
because they are separated from 
the working areas. Since security 
was a key factor for the judges, 
there is a separate high security 
circulation pattern for them and 

others involved in court proce- 

Twenty-six civil and criminal 
courtrooms are positioned in a 
central swath of the new build- 
ing—with access for the public 
on one side and |udges on the 
other The |udges' chambers are 
located along the perimeter of 
the eastern elevation (see floor 
plans) and all have views. )ury 
rooms and auxiliary facilities are 
worked into the plan according 
to the size of the level. Each is 
the equivalent of one-and-a-half 
conventional floor height. By 
means of an "interlocking" stack- 
ing system, a whole floor of 
courtrooms and related spaces 
can be accommodated (see sec- 





The interiors arrangement of 
the Law Courts building reflects 
the architects ' desire to express 
the importance of public space. 
The main public concourse 
(right) continues the spirit of 
the exterior with its dramatic 
post-and-beam structure 
marching through, underneath 
the tinted glass roof, supported 
by a space truss. A grand 
central staircase (left) leads to 
the upper terraces; each level 
provides striking views of other 
terraces while creating waiting 
areas to the courtrooms. Class- 
enclosed corners (above) offer 
expansive views to the cityscap 
especially fascinating at the 
northern edges which overlook 
the rest of the complex across 
the flowing pool of water that 
covers the government offices. 
While there is no "typical" 
floor because of square footagi 
differences on set-back levels, 
the general plan has public 
' 'galleries ' ' relating to the 
centrally positioned courtrooms 
beyond which are judges ' 

tions, pages 70 and 74) A large 
restaurant is also provided just 
above the connection to the pro- 
vincial government office build- 
ing in the central block, overlook- 
ing the pool of water 

Like any project of this com- 
plexity, and public visibility — 
indeed, of public importance in 
an important city — the new cen- 
ter has been subjected to criti- 
cism, some of which Arthur Erick- 
son agrees with For one thing, 
the open plan offices (designed 
by another firm retained by the 
government) in the provincial 
government building (photo, 
page 74) are less than successful 
since the varying partition heights 
do not relate well to Erickson's 

scheme of letting side lighting 
into the space and creating views 
out. Another disappointment is 
the selection of fast-food conces- 
sions serving the public next to 
the Robson Square's major plaza 
Erickson had envisioned (and lost 
the argument for) a series of eth- 
nic restaurants, each with a dif- 
ferent environment that would 
appeal to Vancouver's diverse 
populations And even though 
the complex is clearly land- 
scaped—and indeed may be- 
come lushly landscaped as the 
plantings mature — Erickson 
hoped for more mature plane 
trees along the edges of the com- 
plex (see site plan) both to define 
the edges and to soften the con- 

crete walls And of course, the 
bold and broad use of concrete, 
as well as the size of the com- 
plex, leads to the criticism of 

Erickson winces at this last 
criticism — and while that criticism 
IS probably inevitable, it is surely 
debatable. On a positive note, 
the three-block-long complex, 
with a budget of $139 million, is 
of course very large; but that 
does not make it monumental in 
the perjorative sense. For one 
thing, it is surely arguable that 
monumentality is necessary and 
desirable in a major public build- 
ing; it IS surely arguable that, 
appropriately designed, we need 
monuments. But if this is a monu- 

ment, it is one designed for the 
people, appropriate to its uses 
and its setting At any rate, this is 
a far more sensitive urban solu- 
tion, especially for the beautiful 
city of Vancouver, than an earlier 
proposal by an earlier govern- 
ment and architect for "the high- 
est building in Vancouver" on the 
present site. It would have been 
a 55-story skyscraper dominating 
the skyline, 20 stories taller than 
the now highest Toronto Domin- 
ion Bank tower 

The project's horizontality 
and terracing, and its use of con- 
crete as the basic material, grows 
out of its site, its placement, and 
Erickson's earlier work — particu- 
larly Simon Eraser University, the 

Museum of Anthropology, and 
most of his private houses — that 
built his distinguished reputation 
and his selection for this job. This 
is also a public building, clearly 
designed with the public in mind 
Its park and promenade spaces 
invite everyone to use the com- 
plex—whether they have busi- 
ness there or not. Erickson sees it 
as "a mixture of grand spaces 
and smaller more intimate places, 
landscaped paths and quiet cor- 
ners. We used the familiar tech- 
nique of providing surprises, intri- 
guing views at the end of a walk- 
way or corridor — hoping to draw 
visitors along " 

As noted at the beginning, 
this grand complex also es- 

tablishes a new core and charac- 
ter for its city — and perhaps that 
is the grandest accomplishment 
of all.

The Henderson Planning/Design Group is a 
team of professionals who provide a full 
range of urban planning and economic 
development consulting services to 
communities, agencies and private 
clients . 

Philip Henderson and Richard Beatty 
formed the firm in 1977 after working 
together for many years in both the 
public and private sectors. Together, 
they have over 35 years of experience 
in planning, designing and implementing 
urban projects. 

Philip Henderson is a professional 
architect, urban designer and regional 

During five years at the Boston Redevelop- 
ment Authority, he supervised project 
planning and design for projects through- 
out Boston's downtown, including new 
commercial development, rehabilitation 
and preservation projects, transportation 
projects, and area-wide pedestrian 
improvements . 

He subsequently was a founder and Senior 
Associate of Charles G. Hilgenhurst & 
Associates, where he built and directed 
the firm's extensive planning and urban 
design consulting practice for six years. 

Richard Beatty brings to the firm's work 
a strong record of public sector exper- 
ience in project planning and implemen- 
tation, inter-agency coordination, 
community participation, and expediting 
of complex projects. 

During fifteen years at the Boston 
Redevelopment Authority he was involved 

in every aspect of Boston's massive 
Central Business District project, from 
initial project planning through 
actual construction of the plan's major 
components. As Project Director, he 
coordinated all of the agency's downtown 
work, and maintained a cooperative and 
close relationship with Boston's 
business community. 

During six years at the Massachusetts 
Central Transportation Planning Staff, 
he programmed and managed project 
planning work for the Executive Office 
of Transportation and Construction, the 
Department of Public Works, and the 
Massachusetts Bay Transportation 
Authority. In most cases, these were 
very large multi-modal projects which 
involved extensive community partici- 
pation and inter-agency coordination. 

Our professional team-building approach 
enables us to be highly responsive to 
our clients and to provide expertise 
specifically matched to their needs. 
The Partners are directly involved in 
each project, providing "single point 
responsibility" for quality of work, 
budget and schedule. Backing up the 
Partners are team members with the skills 
to carry out an entire project or to 
complete a specialized assignment within 
a project. This staffing flexibility 
enables us to respond very specifically 
to a client's changing needs. 

We are expanding in response to the 
complex needs of our clients - both 
public and private - in the 1980' s. 
Our recent consulting work has included 

downtown revitalization plans, develop- 
ment plans for institutions and for 
privately financed projects, regional 
transportation planning, feasibility 
studies for re-use of several types of 
buildings, and community liaison 
programs for agencies. 

The firm is currently actively involved 
in the following projects: 

o We are providing feasibility analyses, 
site planning and marketing services 
on several large developments for a 
major national real estate developer. 

o The MBTA and North Shore Economic 
Council have retained us to develop 
plans and an implementation strategy 
for improved public transit serving 
the North Shore communities. 

o We are analyzing the development 

potential of the Revere Beach parking 
lots to help the City of Revere ex- 
pedite redevelopment of this prime 
site overlooking the MDC park and the 

o Middleton, MA. hired us to develop 
a zoning plan to improve the type and 
design of development along the Route 
114 corridor. 

o We are continuing to provide services 
on a sizeable waste-to-energy project 
north of Boston which will recycle 
1500 tons per day of solid waste from 
cities and towns, generating electricity 
to be purchased by New England Power. 

o Having completed a development plan for 
the historic downtown millyard in Ames- 
bury, MA., we are helping the town im- 
plement the plan and secure grants for 
public improvements. 



Henderson Planning and RKG, Associates 
analyzed the market and development 
feasibility of the 12 acre parking area 
at Wonderland Station for the City of 
Revere. The results were a realistic 
housing market forecast and a potential 
development program for the site which 
overlooks the refurbished MDC Revere 
Beach park and the open Atlantic. 

The city will solicit development pro- 
posals early in 1983 for a staged con- 
struction of up to 700 high quality 
condominium units and 20 to 30,000 square 
feet of retail/service space.

The Henderson Planning/Design Group is 
on retainer to the Industrial Develop- 
ment Division of Cabot, Cabot & Forbes 
to augment their "in-house" team on a 
variety of site and development planning 
projects. Services have included site 
feasibility analyses, traffic and 
parking planning, liaison with agencies 
and communities, and presentations of 
development opportunities to potential 

The firm recently analyzed several 
excess state properties for CC&F to 
determine the feasibility of private 
development on the sites. Analyses 
included conversion of existing structures 
to office/industrial use; solutions to 
traffic/access problems on-site and from 
major arterial roads; and possible 
strategies to assure local and state 
support for the projects. 

Other assignments have involved identi- 
fying potential new construction sites 
for large R&D clients of Cabot, Cabot 
& Forbes. 

In all cases, the Principals of the 
Henderson Planning/Design Group worked 
closely with the engineers, development 
specialists, marketing personnel and the 
Director of Industrial Development at 
CC&F to provide a well rounded team with 
the specific skills required for these 
complex projects. 



The principals of the Henderson 
Planning/Design Group developed 
a master plan for the Fort Point 
Channel are of Boston which is now 
being implemented through the 
adaptive re-use of the solid old 
wool industry buildings into office 
space, housing, institutional and 
commercial activities. This area 
was envisioned as a logical expansion 
of downtown Boston focussing on the 
South Station Transportation Center 
and the waterfrontage on the channel 
and inner harbor. 

The abandoned Penn Central freight 
yards offered the opportunity for 
new development and the planning team 
worked closely with the land owners 
to create a plan for housing, hotel, 
commercial and open space on this 
thirty acre tract. 

This project is now in the development 
stage with the Children's Museum and 
several office space conversions 
completed and final plans underway for 
housing and a hotel. The early 
comprehensive planning effort helped 
provide guidance for sound investment 
decisions and established the public 
physical and policy framework so 
necessary to attract the private 


In the wake of the devastating fire of 
November 28-29, 1981, the City of Lynn 
embarked on an accelerated planning 
effort to redirect its downtown economic 
revitalization and turn the disaster into 
a new opportunity for physical and social 
improvements. The Henderson Planning/ 
Design Group was retained by "Step Up 
With Lynn, Inc.", a non-profit public/ 
private group dedicated to Lynn's down- 
town renewal , to help define the post- 
fire planning and development program. 

Working with on-going plans such as the 
Heritage State Park on the waterfront, 
^4BTA Central Square improvements , the 
new $26 million Lynn campus for the North 
Shore Community College and loft building 
conversions not destroyed by the fire, 
HP/DG presented an overview of the present 
development potential of downtown Lynn. 
Opportunities were defined for increasing 
the positive effect of the various new 
developments and for reinforcing them 
with adjacent development. 

One of the products of our work was a

Henderson Planning Group was retained by 
the Massachusetts Government Land Bank 
to work with the Town of Amesbury, MA on 
a re-use consensus and development plan 
for the historic brick millyard complex 
in the town center. 

The scope of work included re-use, struc- 
tural and financial analysis of the eight 
buildings and design/development guide- 
lines for the structures and open space 
along the Powow riverfront. 

Working with an eleven- member Millyard 
Advisory Committee appointed by the Select- 
men and Housing Authority, the Henderson 
team developed a plan which received un- 
animous approval of the Committee and 
outlined a strategy for joint public/ 
private implementation of the development. 




Philip Henderson was Chief of Project 
Design and Richard Beatty the Director of 
Downtown Development at the Boston 
Redevelopment Authority during the 
critical years of planning and development 
implementation in the 1960's and early 
1970' s. They carried responsibility 
within the CBD Project for guiding new 
development and traffic planning, design 
of pedestrian areas and parks, and for 
planning and preparing developer's kits 
for several large multi-use projects. 

More than $800,000,000 of new construction 
has been implemented as a result of the 
plans developed by the CBD team. Formal 
designation of the Customs House/Broad 
Street area as a Historic District and 
rehabilitation of landmarks such as Old 
City Hall, the Old Corner Bookstore and 
the Record-American Building were 
accomplished during this period. 

Throughout Boston ' s downtown revitalization 
process, very close liaison was maintained 

with the business community. Rich Beatty 
was the City's representative on the 
Committee for the Central Business District, 
Inc. , which was a full partner with the 
City during the redevelopment. 

Projects planned and implemented at the 
Boston Redevelopment Authority by the CBD 
Planning team include: 

Federal Reserve Bank Building 

Shawmut Bank Building

The Henderson Group has had an ongoing 
planning relationship with Newburyport, 
a city which has received wide acclaim 
for its sensitive and successful 
restoration of the early 19th century 
downtown Market Square. 

Our services in Newburyport have included 
the creation of a development strategy 
for the re-use of the Central Fire 
Station; working with the Mayor and the 
Community Development office to help 
establish a planning approach for the 
downtown waterfront; and participation 
in a re-use analysis for a large down- 
town industrial building. 

The architecturally significant Central 
Fire Station is the keystone for the 
continued revitalization of the Market 
Square area and the waterfront. The 
recommendation to include this structure 
as an integral part of the waterfront 
redevelopment parcel was unanimously 
approved by the City Council and will 
provide a financial incentive as well 
as a unique design opportunity for the 
developers of the waterfront.

Assistance was given to the City in prep- 
aring a planning strategy for the entire 
downtown waterfront which will complement 
the Market Square renewal and the adjacent 
downtown neighborhoods. A comprehensive 
waterfront plan is now being made for the 
City by a consultant which addresses the 
area and issues as recommended. 

The Henderson Group participated in a 
development and re-use seminar for the 
owners of a large industrial building 
within the waterfront area. Alternative 
courses of action were described to the 
client which included various re-uses 
and the needed changes in the surrounding 
environment to support successful reno- 
vation. Opportunities for cooperative 
action with owners of adjacent properties 
were also explored.

This development proposal to the City 
of Portsmouth was prepared for a 4 . 5 
acre site overlooking the Piscataqua 
River. The site is adjacent to the 
historic Market Street restoration area 
and special care was given to the design, 
scale and architecture so that it will 
enhance the existing downtown. 

The development consists of 47 residential 
units sited to take advantage of the 
views of the maritime activity and the 
early 19th century downtown buildings, 
and approximately 26,000 square feet of 
commercial/office space in a cluster of 
two-story buildings on the inland portion 
of the site. 

Total construction cost is estimated at 
$5,650,000 with the commercial/office 
space to be built and marketed in three 
stages . 

Strong pedestrian connections were planned 
both within the deveopment and connecting 
the site to the rest of downtown. All 
parking required is provided on-site and 
gathered into several well defined areas, 
rather than scattered among the buildings. 

The creation of this mixed-use development 
will provide a high quality addition to 
the successful restoration effort underway 
in New Hampshire's largest seacoast

Mr. Henderson led the team which was 
responsible for the planning of over 
$530 million of new urban development in 
the Massachusetts Bay Transportation 
Authority's Southwest Corridor Project. 
The Corridor is a five mile swath of 
land running through several Boston 
neighborhoods which was originally 
cleared for construction of an inter- 
state highway. It will contain new 
high speed Amtrak service, a new MBTA 
Orange Line, and eight new stations, 
costing a total of $760 million. Since 
the land area required for these facili- 
ties is modest, a large amount of excess 
cleared land has been divided into some 
75 development parcels. 

The team formulated a master land 
development plan, based upon detailed 
analysis of each parcel together with 
an extensive community participation and 
review process. The plan includes 
1,000 dwelling units, 3 million sq.ft. 
of commercial space, 2 million sq.ft of 
institutional space, and 400,000 sq.ft. 
of industrial space, all linked to an 
80 acre linear park. 

Tools were developed to communicate the 
tax, job generation, traffic and other 
impacts of every development alternative 
for every parcel. This information, 
together with information and attitudes 
gathered from the community, was used to 
prepare detailed developer's kits for 
the major corridor parcels. Although 
construction of the transit facilities 
has only recently begun, private develop- 
ment in the Jamaica Plain and Roxbury 
neighborhoods and in downtown Boston 
on corridor-related sites is already 
underway. It will eventually result in 


creation of up to 12,000 new jobs, and 
tax revenues to the City of Boston esti- 
mated at $7 million per year. 

Mr. Henderson's team worked with residents 
on all decisions regarding their neighbor- 
hoods and businesses. With as many as 
5,000 residents participating in the 
project, this process was organized 
around the eight station areas so that 
residents and consultants could work 
together as much as possible in smaller 
groups . 

The development planners were also part 
of the Project Coordinating Team, and 
maintained intensive coordination 
throughout the process with the archi- 
tects for each of the eight stations and 
with a very large engineering team to 
assure workable designs and construction 
staging for both transit facilities and 
private development.

Conversion of the former US Army Arsenal 
at Watertown, Massachusetts to civilian 
use was a major issue in the town for 
a decade. Numerous attempts to develop 
the 125-acre site and its 31 buildings 
had failed. A group of concerned Water- 
town residents then formed the Watertown 
Arsenal Alternative Use Committee (WAAUC) 
.to prepare a new plan for the site which 
would merit broad community support . 

The plan which Mr. Henderson prepared 
for the WAAUC was built around a concept 
which included a lively mix of public 
and institutional uses with new retail 
space. Several acres of existing open 
space, including extensive frontage on 
the Charles River, would provide the 
Town much-needed recreational facilities. 

The Arsenal began operation in 1816, 
under Captain George Talcott, and still 
contains 12 structures of significant 
historic and architectural merit. The 
plan called for extensive rehabilitation 
of these older structures, including 
re-use of several for Town facilities. 

The twentieth century saw construction 
on the site of numerous large heavy 
industrial structures totaling some 
945,000 square feet of space. Several of 
the newer and larger buildings were 
designated for institutional and museum 
uses, and others for indoor recreation 
and enclosed shopping areas. 

The WAAUC disbanded upon completion of 
its work, and the Watertown Redevelopment 
Authority is carrying out development of 
the Arsenal site. 


The New Haven harbor encompasses over 
five square miles of water, enclosed 
by a thirteen mile coastline. It opens 
directly into Long Island Sound. 

Over recent decades, the focus of New 
Haven's development activity has 
shifted away from the harbor. Water- 
front land has increasingly been 
devoted to transportation and heavy 
industrial uses, and the water itself 
has become severely polluted. The 
harbor, however, has immense untapped 
potential to regain its historic role 
as the focus for New Haven's commercial 
and recreational growth without detri- 
ment to its continued function as the 
shipping port serving much of southern 
New England. 

tir. Henderson and members of the firm 
prepared a comprehensive concept plan 
for the future of the harbor, and 
identified a series of feasible "early 
action" projects for specific areas 
along the waterfront. 

A wide variety of activities and users 
are affected by plans for the harbor's 
future, and close liaison was maintained 
with groups involved in shipping, oyster 
cultivation, recreation, heavy industry, 
historic preservation, sailing, and 
development of commercial and residential 
projects adjacent to the water. Ideas 
and problems relating to the harbor were 
discussed in small working meetings and 
in well attended public symposia.

The Henderson Group was retained by the 
North Shore Economic Council to design 
and help implement a regional bus system 
for seventeen communities on the North 
Shore of the Boston area. 

The first phase was a feasibility 
analysis which investigated the market 
for ridership in the region and 
evaluated various alternative systems, 
costs and funding sources. The recommended 
alternative was a moderate sized bus 
system which serves primarily the more 
densely populated communities of Beverly, 
Salem, Peabody and Danvers. More than 66% 
of the daily trips generated in this area 
have both origin and destination within 
the area. Therefore, the system was designed 
to meet these regional travel needs and 
to interface with the existing commuter 
rail stations on the Eastern Branch of the 
Boston and Maine for service to and from 
downtown Boston. 

The second phase includes refinement of the 
preferred alternative to delineate routes, 
schedules, fares, operating costs and 
establish the administrative structure to 
operate the system.

The Massachusetts North Shore is an area 
of over 400 square miles stretching along 
the coast from Boston to New Hampshire. 
Included in the area are 27 cities and 
towns served by the Massachusetts Bay 
Transportation Authority (MBTA) . 

Philip Henderson directed a planning team 
which worked in a joint venture with an 
engineer and Richard Beatty established 
the liaison program and coordinated the 
planning with the State agencies for the 
analyses of rapid transit, commuter rail, 
and express and local bus services, as 
well as the identification of new devel- 
opment opportunities resulting from the 
transportation improvements. The first 
phase of work identified forty alternative 
service and alignment options, and 
narrowed these to a final set of six. 
The second phase of work then produced 
an environmental impact analysis for 
each alternative, a preferred alter- 
native, and a capital grant application. 

A strong community participation program 
was the foundation of this planning 
process. It kept the people of the North 
Shore informed about progress, while 
also making the consultant team and 
MBTA staff aware of the concerns and 
priorities of affected communities. 
Sub-area committees included represent- 
atives of each community and other 
interested citizens, and met regularly 
with the planning team. Public community 
meetings and hearings were also held 
periodically. Newsletters were published 
and distributed throughout the area. 

The Preferred Alternative includes a 
carefully balanced package of improve- 
ments to each of the systems serving 
the North Shore. In Salem Massachusetts, 
the plan includes a new commuter rail 
and bus facility to upgrade passenger 
service. More importantly, the station

will be relocated to a new site, adjacent 
to Salem's revitalized shopping district, 
the new Essex Street Mall, and two 
development sites. This station relocat- 
ion plan was carefully worked out with 
the Salem Planning Department as an 
important part of Salem's revitalized 

In Lynn, Massachusetts, the plan calls 
for a $250 Million extension of the 
existing MBTA Blue Line transit to a new 
terminal in Central Square. The terminal 
will provide parking for 2000 cars and 
will serve the Blue Line, commuter rail, 
and local and line-haul buses. Retail 
space within the terminal, together with 
several newly created development sites 
will be a major element in downtown 
Lynn's economic recovery. 

When fully implemented, the improve- 
ments will increase the accessibility 
of North Shore communities to Boston's 
shopping areas and jobs, while offering 
a convenient and inexpensive alternative 
to the private automobile. The improve- 
ments will also increase transit use 
for trips between North Shore communi- 
ties. Perhaps most importantly, they 
will increase the development potential 
and strengthen the economic base of the 
entire North Shore.

As energy and material costs rise, 
so do the demands placed on engi- 
neering design firms throughout 
the world. Sippican Consultants 
International is meeting that chal- 
lenge with resourcefulness and 
enthusiasm, and the company's 
three main functional divisions can 
handle virtually any engineering 
tasks. SCI's services include struc- 
tural engineering, foundation 
design, general civil engineering 
and site work, mechanical, electri- 
cal, power plant design and energy 
conservation, as well as environ- 
mental and sanitary engineering 
and water resource planning. The 
structural expertise of SCI has 
made news in the modern engi- 
neering world more than once, a 
result of the example set by Wil- 
liam J. LeMessurier, SCI's founder 
and Chairman whose creative 
spirit pervades the entire SCI orga- 
nization. He teaches in the gradu- 
ate school of Harvard and is one of 
the most innovative professionals 
in the nation. 


SCI projects meet client demands, 
from requirements for more floor 
space, as in the Boston Federal 
Reserve Bank, to requests for a 
particular physical appearance, as 
in the Johns-Manville World 
Headquarters in Denver, Colorado. 
But SCI's unique capabilities are 
also demonstrated in highly spe- 
cialized projects like the award- 
winning National Aeronautics and 
Space Museum in Washington, 
DC, and the Dallas-Fort Worth 
Airport in Texas. 

SCI's achievements range from 
elegant Hyatt Regency hotels to 
consulting on building renova- 
tions. In all assignments the SCI 
effort is directed at how best to sat- 
isfy client wishes, and this nearly 
always means working closely 
with project architects and owners 
right from the start. This team con- 
cept, or what LeMessurier calls 
SCI's total system of effort, often 
results in special answers to some 
of the most difficult problems in 
engineering, such as wind dynam- 
ics and building motion. One 
example of this kind of unique 
solution is that of Citicorp Center 
in New York City, which has 
within it a Tuned Mass Damper 
designed by SCI and applied for 
the first time in the history of the 
world to a tall building. Two such

dampers have also been installed 
in another tall building in Boston, 
thus enhancing the livability of the 
building in high wind. 

Because no building is complete 
without the proper internal organs, 
SCI specializes in advanced engi- 
neering solutions for every aspect 
of internal climate control, electri- 
cal, plumbing and process facili- 
ties, and central power plants. It is 
the economical incorporation of 
these systems within widely vary- 
ing architectural themes which dis- 
tinguishes SCI's innovative 
approach. SCI consults on com- 
mercial and civic centers, educa- 
tional and health facilities, sports 
arenas, transportation facilities and 
even seaside aquariums. Complex 
seawater processing/distribution 
systems had to be designed for the 
exhibit tanks at the New England 
and Baltimore Aquariums. 
Another type of SCI-designed cli- 
mate control can be found at the 
Tufts-New England Medical 
Center, where an advanced air- 
conditioning system uses color- 
coded pipes to carry both chilled 
water and steam. 

For efficiency and to obtain the 
most economical design, both in 
terms of initial cost and in terms of 
energy conservation, all SCI engi- 
neers make use of the firm's own

Vanasse/Hangen Associates, Inc. (V/H), a planning and engineering 
consulting firm, has undertaken more than 300 planning, impact and 
engineering studies and design projects. Clients include state 
highway departments, transit authorities, cities and towns, commer- 
cial, industrial and real estate developers, hospitals, univer- 
sities, architectural and engineering consulting firms. 

The staff of about 50 includes 25 professionals, 15 of whom are 
registered professional engineers (registered in 14 states), urban 
planners, landscape architects and a registered land surveyor. 
This permits V/H, in many cases, to offer full design services 
in-house. The staff includes 13 members of the Institute of 
Transportation Engineers. 

These professionals average more than 10 years experience and have 
been in responsible charge, or have overseen, some $400 million in 
facility improvements. They have developed proficiency in produc- 
ing environmental impact statements and conducting the public 
liaison and agency participation required to bring projects to 
fruition. Plans, specifications and estimates, and construction 
services, have been completed or are in process for a dozen highway 
design/traffic engineering/transit improvement projects each 
exceeding $1 million in construction costs. These projects include 
roadways, site grading and improvements, drainage and utilities, 
pedestrian malls, special transit/bus provisions, parking areas and 
traffic signals. 

Work for New England clients has led to projects in New York, New 
Jersey, Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Florida, Colorado, 
Canada and Saudi Arabia. Branch offices have been opened in 
Portland, Maine and Orlando, Florida. 


Experience of the Firm 

On the following pages are listed some of the more than 300 
projects already undertaken by the firm. The projects are divided 
into several categories: 

• Development/Environmental Impact Studies 

• Central Business District Studies and Urban Design 

• Bus/Transit Related Projects 

• Parking Studies 

• Highway Design 

A few projects may be listed under two categories because two major 
disciplines are involved. Also, a number of impact and CBD studies 
led to follow-on facility design projects, explaining why similar 
project titles may appear under two headings. 

In general, the disciplines and services offered by V/H include the

Central Business District 
(CBD) Studies & Urban Design 

V/H has conducted a thorough analysis of the transportation systems 
in large cities and towns. The objective is usually to revitalize 
core retail areas and capture a greater share of the retail, coiaiaer- 
cial and even tourist market. The methodology is to determine the 
demands being placed on each transportation component — street 
capacity, parking, transit, pedestrian access and safety, etc. — 
and to reallocate space and redesign a balanced system. The follow- 
ing is a partial listing of typical studies. 

• Fitchburg, lAh - Conceptual plans to revitalize the CBD, 
especially Main Street, the spine of the city's revitalization 

• Gloucester, lAK - Study generated by local businessmen of down- 
town circulation and parking for CBD to provide access as a 
regional shopping area. 

• Medford, MA - Planning for a major pedestrian/transit mall and 
a ring road to divert through traffic around the retail trade 
area . 

• Norwood MA - CBD study to relieve congestion and provide 
various amenities, update antiquated signal system, provide 
additional parking and a parking management program. 

• Somerville, MA - Union Square. Through -oriented traffic, 
including a heavy truck component, makes the street environment 
less desirable in the heart of Somerville' s commercial area. 
V/H design provides improvements compatible with urban growth 
objectives . 

• South Norwalk, CT - Master plan for revitalization of CBD and 
major reuse of the waterfront area, including housing and 
marine-related development and possible marine transportation. 

• Springfield, MA - Working as part of an urban development team, 
V/H developed a transportation plan to balance needs of buses, 
truck loading zones, pedestrians and through/local vehicles 
circulation and parking. 

• Webster, lAK - Study objective was to revitalize a regional 
downtown retail trade area, increasing accessibility, to make 
it more competitive with suburban malls. 

• VJeymouth, MA - Parking and circulation needs and capacities in 
Central and Jackson Squares permitted increasing open space for 
improved pedestrian access and landscaping. 


Bus / Transit Related Projects 

As is additionally indicated in the resumes of the V/H personnel, 
the firm and its personnel have had extensive experience in the 
operation, routing and scheduling of bus systems, and the traffic 
engineering improvements (or TSM - Transportation System Management) 
necessary to improve traffic flow. 

A sampling of previous projects and brief descriptions are listed 

o Montachusetts Transit Development (TDP) Program, Massachusetts 
- updating of routes, implementation of new service, schedule 
improvements . 

o Middletown, Connecticut - established transit development pro- 
gram for Middletown (Midstate Planning Region) area, including 
evaluation of routes and frequencies, fare structures and 
operating management techniques. 

o Department of Environmental Management, Massachusetts - devel- 
oped transit access plan for inner city residents to reach 
coastal recreational facilities, particularly on weekends. 

o Dewey Square Boston - selected on team to redesign Dewey 
Square to better accommodate intermodal and bus transfers, HOV 
(high occupancy vehicles), priority signals (preemption) for 
buses, access configuration, pedestrian patterns. 

o Hospital Shuttle Bus Systems and M.I.T. Shuttle Bus System - 
developed shuttle bus systems for St. Elizabeth's, Faulkner 
and Mass. General Hospitals in Boston, and Winchester Hospital 
to meet parking deficit requirements. MIT shuttle bus 
operates between Wellesley College and MIT. 

o Boston National Historic Park - developed transportation plan 
for visitor access to historical sites within the National 
Park System for U.S. Department of Interior, including parking 
locations and use of MBTA rapid transit and bus stations and 

o Gallagher Terminal, Lowell, Massachusetts and PATH Terminal, 
Journal Square, Jersey City, New Jersey - on teams that 
* designed these facilities which include transit transfers, 
parking, bus routings and street capacities. 

o Medford Square Transit Mall and Harvard Square, Cambridge, and 
Union Square, Somerville, Massachusetts and Commerical Street, 
Portland, Maine - urban designs, transit routing, bus stop 
locations and street redesign in cooperation with transit 
authorities to reduce conflicts and congestion, improve street 
capacity. Commercial Street is the major thoroughfare along 
the Portland, ME waterfront and piers. 



V/H has assisted more than 20 communities, 23 hospitals and 
numerous commercial, industrial, retail and real estate developers

The Schnadelbach Partnership 

Terry Schnadelbach, head of The Schnadelbach Partnership, is a 
graduate of Louisiana State University and Harvard's Graduate 
School of Design. Mr. Schnadelbach was the 1964 winner of the 
American Academy in Rome's coveted Prix de Rome in Landscape 
Architecture. He also received a HUD award for design excellence, 
the New York City Club's Bard Award for Civic Design, a Citation 
for Design Excellence from the Philadelphia AIA, and a New York 
State Association Award of Merit. 

Mr. Schnadelbach ' s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern 
Art, the Whitney Museum, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He 
has taught Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Rhode Island School of 
Design, and lectured at colleges and universities throughout the 
nation . 

In private practice, Mr. Schnadelbach designed the award-winning 
Mill Hill Historic Park in Trenton, New Jersey, a series of inner- 
city parks in Baltimore, Maryland (including an innovative "disco- 
park"), and downtown public spaces in Denver, Boston, New York, 
Washington and Philadelphia. He directed over 350 contracts in exe- 
cuting and coordinating the Bicentennial site improvement throughout 
the historic and central businesr district of Philadelphia. He has 
been the planner and designer of the new U.S. Open Tournament Facility 
attracting over 50,000 spectators a day the largest tennis facil- 
ity in the world and second only to Wimbeldon in prestige. 

Mr. Schnadelbach has an international reputation with project exper- 
ience in Africa, Asia, and Central America. In the Middle East, 
Terry Schnadelbach has been responsible for a long list of landscape 
and development plans. One project now underway there is the open 
space network for the Fintas New Community in Kuwait. This assign- 
ment includes both regional and central business districting-serving 
parks, and features a large botanical garden with several different 
climatic environments.

Mill Hill 
Historical Park 
Trenton, New 











According to history texts, Ameri- 
can troops under the leadership of 
George Washington camped along 
the banks of the Assunpink Creek in 
preparation for the Battles of Prince- 
ton and Trenton and the Crossing 
of the Delaware during the Revolu- 
tionary War. This area was developed 
as a public park by the City of Tren- 
ton within the Mercer Jackson Urban 
Renewal Area. 

The Park forms the spine of the urban 
renewal area for one quarter mile 
of the Creek. It is comprised of nar- 
row strips of land along both sides of 
the Creek which include an amphi- 
theater and walks along the Creek 

In addition to the design of the Park, 
the Partnership's work also included 
design of improvements to the chan- 
nel and banks of the Assunpink 
Creek. Such improvements could 
have potentially eaten up the whole 
budget for the park and severely 
reduced the Creek's value as an 
amenity to the Park. However, the 
Partnership investigated and recom- 
mended the use of the Gabion system 
of embankments which lends itself 
to the Park's natural settmg while also 
keeping the Creek accessible to 
users of the Park. This arrangement 
allows proper drainage of the prop- 
erty behind the walls, much of which 
is private, and still controls erosion 
on the banks.

ments included paving, land- 
scaping, playgrounds, seating 
areas, performance stages, decor- 
ative fountains and lighting, 
information areas, bike racks, 
and an observation walk for an 
archeological excavation.

and temporary service components 
and streetscape improvements in 
selected areas throughout the 
entire District. These included 
such elements as street trees, 
benches and tables, trash recep- 
tacles, bus canopies, portable 
drinking fountains, crosswalk 
graphics, banners, temporary 
toilet facilities, and wall murals 

Throughout the planning, design

South Cove Plaza 
Boston, Massachusetts 

In the midst of Boston's theater dis- 
trict sits one of Boston's major public 
open spaces, South Cove Plaza. The 
Firm's design for this plaza is in- 
tensely urban, reflecting the fact that 
it is for the use of nearby residents, 
theater-goers, workers in the area 
and church groups. 

South Cove Plaza provides a summer 
refuge for city dwellers with sitting 
areas under a canopy of trees and 
an amphitheater for performances 
by local theater groups. During the 
winter, the design calls for ice skatmg 
as a primary activity. 

The Plaza is also a focus for formal 
and mformal community activities. 
Several gardens on the Plaza are 
cared for by local garden clubs. A 

new Church of all Nations is located 
at one corner of the Plaza. In addi- 
tion, open aieas of the Plaza were 
designed to accommociale art shows 
and other city talis. 

Finally, the design related to bLJsi- 
ness interests in the area. The new 
Omonoia Restaurant has outdoor din- 
ing on the Plaza, while th^ location 
of a nev.' subway entrance will be 
covered by a kiosk foi commiinity in- 
foimation until such time as the new 
station is built. 

The project is being funded thiough 
the Boston Redevelopment .-^ut^lotlly 
by a S500.000 grant frofu the U 3. 
Buieau of Outdooi Recreation.

Site plan, perspectives sketches, and sections. 

A design for the Riverfront Plaza in Fort Lauderdale 
was done as a competion in the Schnadelbach office. 
A specific list of set program requirements was given 
as a basis for the design project. One of the most 
important requirements was that the plaza relate to 
the New River and to the existing park on the river. 
The program included the need for two commercial 
buildings to house offices, shops, and a restaurants. 
In the firms design two buildings were sited for these 
uses. A large plaza/ ampitheater united the two with an 
open space. A water feature strikingly divided the 
space- 250 feet in lenght. This feature directed plaza 
users through the site and pointed its axis to the New 
River. Water jets and paving blocks were designed to 
breakup the volume of water.

El iironmental Analysis 
A1 'nfic City Master Plan 
Atlantic City, New Jersey 


The Partnership was retained to pre- 
pare the environmental portions of the 
Atlantic City Master Plan. As environ- 
mental consultants we compiled a com- 
prehensive inventory of the environ- 
mental conditions surrounding the city, 
and this inventory became the basis for 
future land use and developmental 

The environmental inventory included 
an in-depth analysis of hydrologic, cli- 
matologic, and geologic conditions in 
Atlantic City. Wildlife, vegetation and 
other ecological systems were studied, 
and factors that could have an impact 
on these systems were identified. 

To perform this analysis, an exten- 
sive data collection program was imple- 
mented and relevant information was 
gathered from local, county, state, and 
federal agencies. The development 
potential of each area within Atlantic 
City and its surrounding wetlands was 
then analyzed, and options were pre- 
pared concerning the dispostion of key 
land parcels.

Villa Vista Housing 
Coney Island, New York 

The New York State Urban Develop- 
ment Corporation recently began a 
policy of building "replication"— of 
duplicating on City sites existing UDC 
fiousing which has proved to meet 
the needs of modest and low income 
families. The Twin Parks Site 4 hous- 
ing, being judged of exceptional ar- 
chitectural and living quality, was 
chosen for replication three-fold on 
Coney Island. 

The same thorough environmental 
and open space analysis which pre- 
cedes all site design here produced 
a sweep of three buildings connected 
by an open breezeway arcade and 
promenade, with terraces. A grassy 
interior commons permits informal 
social activities; its peri meter is a sand 
dune levee designed to protect the 

site from storm flooding. Its form and 
planting design seeks to re-establish 
the sand dune ecology that once was 
Coney Island.

New Orleans Central District Plan and 
Implementation Program 
City Planning Commission of New Orleans 
New Orleans, Louisiana 

The innovative planning and zoning 
approaches developed in this project 
by the firm (and since enacted into law) 
will guide new development in the 
central business district of New 
Orleans. The plan places maximum 
emphasis on incentives to encourage 
developers to provide public ameni- 
ties suited to pedestrian needs and 
the New Orleans climate such as ar- 
cades, galleries, minipari<s and ele- 
ments of an upper-level pedestrian 
circulation system. An extensive 
pedestrian system has also been 
planned for an area along the 
f^ississippi riverfront. 

The New Orleans central business 
district includes areas of unique his- 
toric and architectural interest which 
are protected by the plan's special 
controls on building heights and street 
facade alignment. Provisions of the 
plan support and encourage the pres- 
ervation and rehabilitation of land- 
mark buildings by allowing transfer of 
development rights from landmari< 
sites to development parcels. The latter 
device can be effectively used in com- 
bination with the new special tax dis- 
trict's program of facade easement

Basic to the success of the implemen- 
tation program are its land use, den- 
sity, and parking regulations. These 
regulations allow for growth in selec- 
ted locations while retaining a compact 
form, enabling the business district to 
be well served by public transit and to 

retain its thriving retail center. Policies 
for space-efficient parking proved 
important in guiding central business 
district expansion, since traffic con- 
gestion proved a major limiting factor 
in determining proper density.

JASON M. CORTELL and ASSOCIATES INC. was founded in 1963 as a con- 
sulting firm specializing in aquatic biology and water quality. The firm has since 
evolved into a multidisciplinary environmental consulting organization dealing 
with a broad range of issues. 

The firm's reputation has been built on the sound application of ecological criteria 
in the evaluation of the planning, design, and construction phases of all types of 
development projects. These include transportation, navigation, energy, recrea- 
tion, industrial and commercial development. 

JMCA has undertaken and successfully completed a variety of projects for both 
governmental agencies and private interests throughout the United States and 
abroad. While in most cases the firm works directly for the client, it also collab- 
orates with the nation's leading architectural and engineering firms as part of a 
team effort. In recent years, the scope of JMCA's work has expanded to include 
a wider diversity of clients and projects. 

For public sector clients, JMCA has assisted federal and state agencies with NEPA- 
related environmental assessments and analyses. For private clients, the firm offers 
environmental consulting and planning services to support development of new 
facilities. JMCA studies and reports provide a substantive information base to 
aid permit-issuing agencies in evaluation of environmental issues which pertain to 
a particular application or approval request. 

As a result of the exceptionally wide array of disciplines and skills of in-house 
personnel, JMCA is able to staff most projects wholly from its own resources, to 
develop an ecological/environmental approach that accurately matches the 
dimensions and scope of the assigned problem, and to provide those services 
within a time frame that meets demanding schedules. Specific talents are assigned 
to a given project on an as-needed basis, with continuing project coordination and 
direction assigned to one professional. Projects are reviewed by an interdisciplinary 
committee of senior staff members, thereby providing the client with a broad 
range of experience and expertise in the most cost-effective manner. 

JMCA offers extensive field services in connection with its laboratory facility in 
Waltham, including air quality monitoring, noise monitoring, and water quality 
analysis. Each monitoring effort relies on techniques, instrumentation, and quality 
assurance programs that meet or surpass Federal and state requirements. 

JMCA also maintains a Quality Assurance Program to ensure that its clients 
receive analyses and recommendations based on the most current information. 
To implement this program, staff members spend a portion of each month in 
professional development, including reviews of recent publications in their 
particular field of specialization. This research keeps JMCA abreast of the latest 
developments in environmental science and technology and the evolution of 
environmental law. 




Licenses & 

The JMCA staff is highly skilled and experienced in the regulatory processes which 
govern site development. A connprehensive and fast track approach has been devel- 
oped to facilitate all review procedures including local, county, State, and Federal 
approvals. JMCA has the expertise to focus data gathering, provide agency liaison, 
present technical information at public and agency review proceedings, and assure 
the timely granting of required permits and approvals. 

Source Book 

Early identification, inventory, and analysis of the regulatory requirements to which 
a specific proiect is subject are essential. JMCA's review of applicable regulations 
results in a Regulatory Requirements Source Book which compiles all permit proce- 
dures, data requirements, and review periods. The document, which is produced 
m a looseleaf notebook format, facilitates planning and data gathering efforts and 
targets early work to final requirements, precluding redundant efforts and incom- 
plete submissions. The Regulatory Requirements Source Book is updated periodi- 
cally, thereby providing each member of the development team with ready access 
to the most current requirements to which the project will be sub|ect. 

Record of 
Permits and 

As a project progresses from the initial approval stage to construction, the Source 
Book IS incorporated into a Record of Permits and Approvals document. This serves 
as the master reference document for all members of the project team, compiling 
permit applications as they are submitted, tabulating the status of all regulatory 
requirements, and charting the permitting process for the project. The document 
IS updated on a regular basis as project design is finalized or as regulatory require- 
ments are modified. With many former Federal programs in the process of being 
taken over at the State level, it is particularly important to have all requirements 
tabulated in such a manner. To that end, JMCA computerizes its permit tracking to 
facilitate regular updates, to allow clear delineation of any modification to require- 
ments, and how this affects other contingent requirements or schedules. The 
goal of the JMCA approach is to obtain all components of project approval free 
of unnecessary delays. 







The successful completion of an Environmental Impact Statement requires 
thorough understanding of the procedural steps, expertise to generate appropriate 
and accurate data, and ability to work effectively with reviewing agencies. When 
NEPA became law in 1970, there were no methodologies for systematic environ- 
mental assessment. Experience in the preparation of Environmental Impact 
Statements provides the most relevant understanding of existing legislation and 
the ability to translate problem-solving techniques into specific actions. With 
increased public participation in the decision-making process throughout the 
1970's, JMCA refined its public information and awareness programs to facilitate 
the review aspects of the Impact Statement process. Each program is tailored to 
the scope and size of the project, the nature and sophistication of the community, 
and the environmental sensitivity of the project site. 

JMCA may either assume overall responsibility for preparation of the EIS or 
participate in the process by providing specific technical data. The breadth and 
depth of JMCA's in-house staff enables the firm to prepare an EIS in a cohesive 
and efficient manner or to call on particular members of the staff to make specific 
technical contributions to Statements being prepared by others. The firm has 
been responsible for EIS preparation for the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard, the 
Boston Area Office of HUD, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the New Jersey 
Department of Transportation, the Massachusetts Division of Land and Water Use, 
as well as numerous clients in the private sector. Additionally, JMCA has partici- 
pated in the preparation of EiSs for the Massachusetts Department of Public 
Works, the New York Department of Transportation, the Maine State Highway 
Department, and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation. 


As part of the federal environmental decision-making process, several agencies 
have initiated the Environmental Assessment procedure. Closely related to the 
Environmental Impact Statement, technical data is provided and the same range 
of concerns are addressed but the document is intended for use within an agency 
rather than being circulated for public review. JMCA's ability to create inter- 
disciplinary teams from its in-house staff enables the firm to adapt its expertise 
to the particular project to match the client's needs. The company's diverse 
experience has made it responsive to the scope and data requirements of such 
Assessments, and adaptable to the production of a report which serves a variety 
of subjects and goals. In practice, an assessment of the existing environment may 
include any or all of the following disciplines: air quality, water quality and sup- 
ply, hydrology, geology, soils, topography, vegetation, wildlife, ecology, demo- 
graphy, history, archaeology, and land use. 




JMCA has, through considerable experience, developed the ability to work effec- 
tively in marine environments. Company-owned survey craft allow JMCA resource 
scientists to obtain biological samples as well as physical and chemical data from 
marine areas for studies related to the construction of various types of onshore 
and offshore facilities. Analytical techniques include the utilization of a series of 
advanced computer programs for marine benthic samples as indicators of ambient 
and long term water quality. These capabilities have been demonstrated in JMCA's 
marine dredging and disposal site analyses; port facilities siting and environmental 
assessments, estuarine monitoring programs included in environmental impact 
studies for harbor construction; ocean outfall/effluent discharge permit studies; 
and the development of area guideline manuals to be used in conjunction with 
marine construction. 


JMCA provides professional interpretation of the complex aquatic environment 
and community interrelationships. This expertise stems from the firm's experience 
in literature research as well as field and laboratory studies of plankton, periphyton, 
macrophyton, macroinvertebrates, and fisheries community analysis. A wide variety 
of field monitoring equipment is used to ascertain long term and seasonal variations 
in the freshwater environment. The habitats and life-cycle requirements of the 
different organisms are ascertained and utilized to predict impacts or anticipated 
changes resulting from a project. JMCA offers expertise in determining food chains, 
studies of trophic levels (mass balance nutrient budget studies), and transfer of 
energy throughout the aquatic ecosystem. 


JMCA offers expertise in plant ecology and wildlife biology. Experience ranges 
from regional surveys and identification of vegetative community types by aerial 
photographic interpretation to detailed analyses of specific communities and 
habitats. Through field surveys supplemented with professional evaluation, JMCA 
is able to assess the significance of communities and habitats, whether of scientific, 
economic, recreational, or aesthetic interest. Community stability and sensitivity to 
impact may predict the response of either a plant or animal community to potential 
environmental changes. This evaluation of a variety of resources, whether a wetland 
or the habitat of an endangered species, is within the scope of JMCA's services and 
has formed the basis for land use decision making by both private developers and 
public regulatory agencies. JMCA has developed resource management plans to 
enhance the value of a parcel for a desired use. The firm also offers expertise in the 
design of mitigative plans, including the creation of replacement communities or 
habitats, as compensation for an area affected by a project. 




JASON M, CORTELL and ASSOCIATES INC. provides extensive services to 
clients in field monitoring, and laboratory analyses. Each monitoring effort relies 
on instrumentation, techniques, and quality assurance programs that meet or 
exceed Federal and state requirements. 

Water Quality 

The JMCA Water Quality Laboratory provides complete analyses to support a 
wide variety of project types. Studies include both marine and fresh water, 
potable water supplies, storm water, industrial and wastewater treatment plant 
effluents, and soils. Each item of laboratory equipment is maintained and cali- 
brated according to manufacturer specifications or Federal and State Quality 
Assurance Guidelines, whichever is more stringent. Additionally, all samples are 
subject to strict chain of custody procedures from the moment of sampling until 
final disposition. Approximately 10 percent of all samples passing through the 
laboratory are blind quality assurance samples of known composition or relabled 
duplicates of regular samples. Both the accuracy and precision of the instruments, 
techniques, and laboratory personnel are thus continuously monitored. 


JMCA offers field monitoring services for selected water quality parameters 
using a self-contained water quality measuring device. Surface water quality is 
determined through a variety of parameters such as hydrogen ion concentration, 
temperature, dissolved oxygen, specific conductance, chloride concentrations, 
and others. Through the field monitoring program, compliance with Federal 
and State Water Quality Standards may be determined. 


Because of frequent involvement in Environmental Impact Statement studies, 
JMCA maintains a full library of computer programs for data reduction and 
analysis, air quality and noise models, water resource models, and job control. 
In addition, JMCA offers custom model development and software for special 
applications in environmental data processing and modeling. All computer work 
utilizes the ADP network of DEC-10 computers. In-house terminals and inter- 
active software make efficient use of this resource on a daily basis. 


Ambient noise monitoring is a significant component of JMCA'sstudieson diverse 
projects, from major transportation studies to the siting of cooling towers. These 
include a Bruel and Kjaer Model 166 Environmental Noise Classifier (for deter- 
mining compliance with OSHA, HUD, FHWA, State, and local noise exposure 
regulations) and a Model No. 1945 Gen Rad Community Noise Classifier, which 
provides state-of-the-art monitoring capabilities and automatic L^jp calculations. 
Both devices meet ANSI Type 2 Sound Level Meter Specifications and provide 
data acceptable to all regulatory agencies. In addition, special equipment is 
available for vibration assessment, octave band analysis, and precision tape re- 
cording of noise signals. This provides flexioility m noise monitoring capabilities 
sufficient to meet any monitoring requirement. 

Air Quality 

JMCA provides full ambient air quality monitoring to support environmental 
impact statements and special purpose studies. Carbon monoxide (CO) is the 
focus of the monitoring capability because of traffic-related air quality standards 
which have been set by both federal and state agencies. CO also forms the basis 
for most studies of local air quality effects. In order to interpret carbon monox- 
ide monitoring data accurately, JMCA maintains a concurrent full range of 
meteorological monitoring services. All devices, maintenance procedures, and 
quality assurance programs conform with Federal Environmental Protection 
Agency Guidelines. 

In-house carbon monoxide equipment consists of the Beckman Model 866 Non- 
Dispersive Infra-Red (NDIR) CO Monitors equipped with Auto Span Modules 
and Houston Instruments Omniscribe Recorders. These are Federal Reference 
Method devices for ambient carbon monoxide monitoring. Meteorological data 
are gathered with a Climatronics Windmark III Wind Speed and Direction Monitor 
and a Climatronics Electronic Weather Station. The Weather Station measures and 
records wind speed, wind direction, solar radiation, temperature, relative humidity, 
and precipitation. Both Climatronics devices have integral recorders and are 
suitable for both regional and micrometeorological measurements. 

In addition to capabilities in CO and meteorological monitoring, JMCA also 
monitors nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrocarbons, and particulate levels. 
JMCA field personnel install, maintain, and service the instruments to ensure a 
uniform level of quality. JMCA offers clients a full range of monitoring services 
which are tailored to each specific job.

included; a sustained working relationship with 
the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority and 
the success of that city's Market Street East 
project In Seattle, ERA was involved in the 
preservation and rehabilitation of several hun- 
dred units of low-cost housing, an irreplaceable 
resource for that city's low-income minority 

With the passage of property tax limitation 
measures in several states, which reduced the 
effectiveness of tax increment financing of re- 
development projects, ERA is assisting many 
communities with the formation of local im- 
provement districts and special parking 
assessment districts to enhance downtown

Adaptive Use/ Historic Preservation 

ERA IS a leading firm in the economic and 
financial analysis of thie adaptive use of historic 
structures and areas Successful adaptive use 
projects naturally extend the economic life of 
historic buildings and bring new life to often

adaptive use and historic preservation work in 
Boston (Faneuil Hall Market Place). Providence 
(The Arcade Building), Chicago (Historic Pull- 
man Area), Lowell, Massachusetts (Lowell 
National Cultural Park), and Virginia, Minnesota

cently coauthored a book titled Adaptive Use: 
Development Economics Process and Profiles 
with the Urban Land Institute 

Economic/Fiscal Planning 

The pressure for increasing efficiency in gov- 
ernment IS contributing to a growing demand 
for economic and fiscal evaluation of public 
policies, programs and projects In the series 
of studies for the Boston Redevelopment Au- 
thority, ERA evaluated the economic impact of 
the Boston Naval Shipyard and the Copley 
Place Redevelopment Project, The State of 
California retained ERA to examine the eco- 
nomic impact of the federal decision not to pro- 
duce the B-1 bomber In a major study for the 
City of St Louis, ERA analyzed the eco- 
nomic/fiscal impacts of a historic preservation 
on the city's central business district ERA also 
evaluated the economic effects expected from 

adoption of the proposed California Coastal 
Zone Plan for the Joint Rules Committee of the 
California Legislature. Other recent economic 
impact studies include the impact of gaming 
for Atlantic City, New Jersey, a cost/revenue 
model to evaluate suburban growth for the 
Denver Regional Council of Governments, and 
in Southern California, ERA has recently ex- 
amined the fiscal implications of creating two 
new counties 

In response to changing demographics and 
use patterns, cities, school districts and others 
have turned to ERA to assist in the analysis of 
surplus lands. The studies have included deter- 
mining the highest and best use as well as dis- 
position or development strategy, 

ERA also has evaluated user fees and 
charges, concessionaire pricing levels and 
service delivery standards.

Planning Alternatives Evaluation 

ERA very often participates on a multi- 
disciplinary team of planners to evaluate major 
planning or public investment alternatives 
zoning and density changes, new community 
planning, and alternative revenue/resource 
programming In Burlington, Vermont, ERA 
conducted a market and economic impact 
justification analysis necessary for the imple- 
mentation of a commercial revitalization plan 
for the downtown area For the Santa Clara 
Valley Corridor Study, ERA evaluated the eco- 
nomic and fiscal impacts of eight different 
transportation and planning alternatives Trans- 
portation systems considered included bus 
emphasis, highway emphasis and light rail de- 
velopment. Planning alternatives considered in- 
cluded compact versus dispersed growth and 
varying infrastructure capacities The study

ducting project performance audits. In 1975, 
ERA was requested by the US Department of 
Housing and Urban Development to develop a 
plan to salvage the financially troubled new 
community of Jonathan. Minnesota The firm 
undertook a performance audit and then formu- 
lated seven implementation strategies. Subse- 
quently, HUD secured a commitment from a 
new developer on terms consistent with ERA 

recommendations In Bridgewater, New Jersey,

IS in some cases an independent study For 
example, ERA recently evaluated the economic 
and fiscal impact of; a proposed relocation of 
a major division of Mobil Oil to Fairfax County, 
Virginia: the peripheral commercial develop- 
ment around Anaheim Stadium: the construc- 
tion of mining and energy development com-

Animal/People Environments (APE) is a divi- 
sion of ERA which provides a wide range of

For the Panama Canal Company, ERA 
developed a long-range forecasting model to 
analyze commodity traffic. The model was used 
by ERA to forecast commodity movements up 
to 1985 For the California State Legislature, the 
firm provided space requirements projections 
and evaluated alternatives to accommodate the 
future growth of the governing body. Mobil Oil 
Corporation called upon ERA to examine the 
feasibility of the company's proposed Virginia 

ERA was retained by a major cement 
company to determine the demand for its 
product in selected California markets. The 
development potential of a Panamanian steel 
mill was the subject of another ERA study. 

For a major energy company. ERA examined 
the coal industry, comparing the historical 
performances of coal with other forms of 
energy and related industries ERA has 
conducted several studies dealing with 
fisheries economics, including an assessment 
of the coordinated marketing potentials for New 
England Seafood products 

ERA has also prepared economic analyses 
in support of antitrust infringement and other 
legal cases ERA principals often serve as 
expert witnesses in these situations

In today's rapidly changing economic environment, it is 
becoming more and more apparent that successful real estate 
planning, development, and management require access to 
the best decision-making tools. Inflation, fluctuating interest 
rates, land use controls, rapidly escalating development costs 
and the complexity of forecasting realistic financial pro formas 
all contribute to the difficult task of meeting land development 
objectives. The successful developer/investor can best attain 
project objectives through the combined technical 
resources of experienced real estate professionals and ad- 
vanced computer technology. 


The Land Development Model, developed by Project 
Economics Inc. and generally referred to as the LDM, vi/as 
designed to enable a wide variety of clients to comprehensively 
assess their various real estate projects in a cost-effective and 
timely manner. 

The LDM is set up primarily for economic, financial and 
planning analysis of single and multi-use real estate 
development projects involving both marketable and income 
producing properties. The basic function of the LDM is to assist 
ERA real estate specialists and other project team members 
in evaluating the probable levels of profit for each land use 
element within a limitless number of development senarios. To 
optimize the potential land use profits, the LDM breaks down 
project input into three basic components: marketable land 
uses; operational land uses; and overhead land uses. 
Typically, the model is used to analyze and produce computer- 
ized reports on the following types of existing and/or 
proposed projects: 

• new towns • mixed use developments 

• planned communities • recreational land developments 

• residential and retirement communities • industrial parks 

• office buildings • apartment complexes 

• shopping centers • resort and hotel developments 

• recreational land developments 


Use of the LDM provides a number of project specific 
benefits when compared with other computer models and more 
conventional manual approaches. These benefits include: 

Incorporates Data From Each Project Team Member 

Throughout the years, hundreds of clients have benefited 
from the ability of the LDM to provide the data necessary 
to produce an optimal development plan. The LDM 
model has also been designed to incorporate key development 
information from each member of the project team - owner/ 
developer, planner, engineer, economist, investor, marketer, 
financial analyst and real estate consultant - into a 
comprehensive land use plan which statistifies all of the 
requirements of the various disciplines. 

Provides Comparative Analysis For Each Land 
Use Component 

Comprehensive profitability and cash flow analysis are 

provided for each land use element for each designated group 
of land use elements, as well as a summary analysis for the entire 
project. With this unique capability, the project team can 
evaluate and refine the land use plan by element to arrive at a 
final land use plan which maximizes the overall project 
development potential. 

Fast Answers 

The LDM operates in a computer finishing environment 
where results of an analysis are available within minutes. This 
unique feature enables clients to receive immediate answers to 
often complex questions. In addition, ERA's real estate specialists 
are located in key regional offices throughout the country . . . within 
easy reach by telephone, telex or other telecommunications 

Easy To Use And Understand 

Knowledge and experience with computers are not 
required to effectively use or understand the LDM. After a brief 
orientation, project team members and their support staffs 
discover the ease in preparing input data and the straight- 
forward approach used to present each analysis. 

Customized Reports 

The LDM is structured such that the model can be adapted 
or modified to handle an unconventional treatment of taxes, 
special types of financing, or other costs or revenue calculations. 
The model is designed to respond to each land use analysis 
in a specific rather than general manner. 

Capability To Conduct Fiscal Impact Analyses 

Analysis of a project's fiscal and environmental impact is 
an increasingly important concern to developers and community 
leaders. Computer models developed for fiscal impact analysis 
require much of the same input as are used in the financial 
analysis of the project. Recognizing this, the LDM is structured to 
prepare a fiscal impact analysis with only a marginal amount of 
input. Furthermore, once the base model is created, any 
modifications to the land development analysis will 
automatically render corresponding data on the fiscal impact of 
that modification. 


The Land Development Model runs on the nationwide 
Information Systems Design (ISD) data processing network 
using the TYMNET wortdwide communications system. ISD's 
processing services provide the economy of large-scale 
computer technology to customers linked by remote terminals 
to TYMNETS wortdwide computer network. 

Users can utilize the models through low-speed or high- 
speed terminals located in their offices, or alternatively, ERA can 
run the model at its own facilities with input supplied by the 
client. Output can be directed to the user's low-speed or high- 
speed terminal, or the high-speed printer at an ISD office. A 
unique feature of this model enables the use of any input-output 
combination. For example, data could be input at a low-speed 
office terminal in Denver, processed at ISD's Santa Clara 
Computer Center, and output printed at a high-speed printer 
located in ERA'S Los Angeles office.

ERA has developed a Retail Model (RM) which serves as a 
financial planning tool for retailers by providing specific sales 
analyses and projections for proposed retail developments. 

Based on a user-defined trade area, geographic, and 
demographic statistics, the RM can estimate sales for one or a 
variety of establishments. The RM's most significant attribute is 
Its ability to provide sales estimates based on establishments, 
rather than on type of goods although many of the clients who 
have used the RM include shopping center developers and 
retail merchants. The RM model has been used extensively by 
public agencies for a variety of business district revitalization

The principal use of the Financial Analysis Model (FAM) is 
for corporate planning, development of long- and short-term 
financial projections, determination of proiect feasibility and 
evaluating investment alternatives. The FAM is capable of 
analyzing broad policy issues within the public sector with 
respect to the impact of major policy decisions upon community 
growth patterns and is used to evaluate growth variables and 
their impact upon revenues and expenditures. 


ERA'S on-line computers have access to a variety of 
population, retail and other computerized data banks which 
provide current information for use in land use analyses. As a 
subsidiary of the Planning Research Corporation, ERA has the 
ability to incorporate the sophisticated computer technology of 
one of the world's largest computer intensive corporations into 
each project analysis. In addition, many of ERA'S professionals

Identify potential problem sources, design treatments to 
meet acceptable noise and vibration criteria, and offer 
engineering supervision to ensure that recommended 
control measures are properly carried out and that 
specified criteria are satisfied 

An example of our comprehensive noise control 
capabilities is a recent contract with the U S Bureau of 
Mines BBN developed and demonstrated retrofit noise 
control treatments that significantly reduce the noise 
exposure of bulldozer operators engaged in surface 
mining These treatments were specifically designed to 
be readily constructed and installed in the field at low 
cost. To transfer this technology to the mining com- 
munity, BBN conducted a series of seminars and 
workshops in 50 cities around the country 

Manufacturers rely on BBN's noise control expertise 
in the design of guieter products and eguipment Our 
services have been used, with excellent results, to 
reduce noise from trucks, heavy machinery, and 
consumer household items

Community Noise 

The measurement, assessment, and 
control of noise in communities calls 
for a variety of acoustical skills and 
experience. BBN combines all the 
necessary technical disciplines to 
assist industry and communities with 
the following activities: 

Measurement of Noise 

From brief field measurements of the 
sound level at a single position to large 
community surveys encompassing 
measurements at many positions for 
extended periods, BBN provides a total 
capability. Our services include data 
acquisition, processing, and interpreta- 
tion. BBN maintains instrumentation 
suitable for both routine and special 
noise measurements. 

Assessment of Noise 

As a vital first step in planning effective 
noise reduction, BBN evaluates noise 
and assesses its impact on people and 
community activities. 

Prediction of Noise 

BBN has been responsible for the 
development and verification of many 
of the engineering techniques now 
widely used to predict noise, both for 
current and projected community condi- 
tions. Drawing upon our expertise in 
computer programming, we have created 
computer programs that provide a ver- 
satile and accurate tool for predicting 
noise from traffic, aircraft, and indus- 
trial plants. In addition to providing 
routine noise prediction services, we 
can develop new predictive methods for 
special or unusual situations. 

Development of Noise Codes 
and Ordinances 

BBN works with state, local, and 
Federal agencies to plan, write, and 
implement practical noise ordinances. 
Planning steps may involve the develop- 
ment of noise requirements for zoning 
ordinances, noise insulation require- 
ments for building codes, or other regu- 
lations for specialized Industrial zones. 

Industry Representation 

BBN acts on behalf of industrial and 
commercial clients in responding to 
requirements of local governments and 
national regulatory authorities. In par- 
ticular, we prepare responses to obtain 
permits for new construction or expan- 
sion or modification of existing facilities. 

Noise control ot power plants helps them to be good neighbors with the communities they serve 

When noise problems arise, BBN acts 
on behalf of companies in negotiations 
with local authorities and community 
organizations. We obtain realistic settle- 
ments of community noise problems 
that take into account cost-effective 
state-of-the-art engineering controls and 
human response to annoying conditions. 

Noise Control Design 

To help managers reduce noise from 
their facilities and to avoid community 
noise complaints, BBN designs and 
specifies effective noise control hard- 
ware. BBN's noise control experience 
includes work for managers of manu- 
facturing facilities, power plants, refin- 
eries, testing facilities, construction 
sites, airports, mines, waste treatment 
plants, and engineering and architec- 
tural firms, as well as numerous govern- 
ment agencies. 

Noise Monitoring Instrumentation 
and Data Processing 

For short- or long-term noise monitoring, 
BBN provides instrumentation recom- 
mendations and develops detailed mea- 
surement procedures. We also develop 
noise monitoring systems for airports 
or special industrial facilities. BBN's 
experience includes measurement and 
data analysis, instrumentation design, 
and fabrication. 


To train people in the assessment and 
control of noise, BBN prepares and 
presents special courses, develops 
simplified handbooks, and provides 
engineering training aids. 




Evaluation of the noise Impact of aircraft on 
communities has been a BBN service for more 
than 20 years. 


Chicago Urban Noise Study 

For this three-part study, which led to 
the 1971 Chicago Comprehensive Noise 
Ordinance, BBN reviewed the need for 
noise abatement, recommended the 
language of the ordinance as well as 
test and measurement procedures, and 
summarized the available technology 
for the control of the major urban noise 
sources. A brief statement prepared by 
BBN presented the recommendations 
for action to implement an effective 
urban noise control program. 

The ordinance sections have been 
widely copied by other cities and 

Noise Measurements in Communities 
of Widely Varying Population Density 

For the Environmental Protection 
Agency, BBN undertook 24-hour mea- 
surements of the outdoor noise environ- 
ment at 100 sites in 14 urban areas 
scattered throughout the United States. 
Acoustic data were correlated with 
population density to develop a model 
for estimating community noise as a 
function of population density. This 
noise model, together with information 




For nearly two decaaes. b8N has worked with 
state agencies to develop motor vehicle noise 
regulations, for even longer, we have predicted 
community noise exposure from highways 

concerning the exposure near freeways 
and airports, was used to establish 
percentages of the U.S. population 
exposed to differing levels of outdoor 
noise. Portable noise monitoring units, 
developed by BBN, were used through- 
out the measurement program. 

Plant Noise Abatement 

For an electric generating station, BBN 
evaluated the source of community 
noise complaints, specified the noise 
control hardware, and assisted in its 
procurement. BBN assisted the station 
owner during meetings with the com- 
munity and local regulatory agencies, 
and after installation of the hardware, 
we evaluated its performance. 

Preparation of Noise Element 
for the North Los Angeles County 
General Plan 

For the county of Los Angeles, BBN 
determined the current noise environ- 
ment and evaluated changes in the 
future noise environment for various 
planning alternatives for the North Los 
Angeles County area. These alternatives 
included the development of a new 
major international airport. Noise goals 
and policies, as well as recommended 
land use policies, were developed as 
part of the Noise Element by California 
State Regulations. 

Analysis of Community Noise 
and a Plan for Noise Control 
for the City of Boston 

For the city of Boston, BBN estimated 
representative noise levels in the city, 
identified and characterized the impor- 
tant noise sources, and established 
criteria for judging community noise 
standards. We summarized appropriate 
methods of noise control, compared 
different approaches for reducing noise, 
and made recommendations for an 
initial regulatory program. 

The recommendations included (1) zoning 
restrictions on land use noise emis- 
sions; (2) restrictions of construction- 
site noise emissions; (3) development 
of noise standards acceptable to new 
vehicles and new powered outdoor 
equipment for sale or lease. 

Noise Pollution Legislation Study 

For the Maryland Department of Trans- 
portation, BBN identified both legisla- 
tive and administrative actions to 
combat the problems of transportation 
noise. The project culminated in the 
passage of the Maryland Environmental 
Noise Act of 1974, which establishes 
mechanisms for principal departments 
to regulate and control environmental 
noise in coordination with Federal 

activities and programs. BBN's support 
to the state agencies included the 
development of both airport noise regu- 
lations and motor vehicle noise regula-

T/ie benefits 
of inventive 
and effective 

Perini management has pioneered 
in the construction, mining and 
real estate industries, providing so- 
lutions and performance beyond 
contract obligations. 

Innovative techniques, rigid cost 
controls, definitive scheduling and 
a productive, competitive work 
force are the extra benefits Perini 
brings to every project. 

Perini Philosophy 

The success of Perini Corporation, since its 
beginning as a small civil works contractor in 
1900, is largely due to a studied management 
approach to the supervision and direction of 
each project, large or small. Even in the early 
years, job conditions and problems were 
carefully analyzed and the management 
organization was structured to meet contract 
commitments and produce a quality project. 

A skilled and productive work force, coupled 
with a spirit of inventiveness, has enabled 
Perini to complete some of the world's most 
difficult and sophisticated projects Many of 
these projects required Perini personnel to 
pioneer new technologies that were later 
adopted as standards for the construction 

Perim's management approach and inventive 
spirit IS more effective today than ever, 
supported by an enlarged staff of managers, 
engineers, planners and schedulers who now 
use computerized systems to control costs 
and schedules. 

Much of Perim's strength lies in the 
experience of this staff, many of whom have 
been with the company 20 to 30 years 
or more. Throughout the organization, 
employees are accustomed to working 
closely and cooperatively with architects, 
engineers and owners to achieve the best 
project value, consistent with sound 
engineering practices and budget guidelines

Perini Today 

Steady and consistent growth has produced 
an experienced organization with personnel 
and financial capacity to service public and 
private owners' construction, mining and real 
estate needs on a worldwide basis 

Perini operations include; 










Real Estate 

Perim's organization and management 
structure calls for autonomous divisions and 
subsidiaries to specialize in each of these 
operations Inter-divisional ventures and 
corporate staff capability provide back-up 
strength and expertise to support a total 
proiect concept 

Not many years ago a contractor's principal 
problem was putting the work in place in the 
face of weather and temperature extremes, 
suspect geology uncertain equipment 
efficiency and variable labor productivity 
These problems are magnified in the current 
economy where wage rates, material and 
equipment costs escalate almost monthly The 
scope, complexity and cost of today's projects 
demand additional services designed to 
maximize the owners' value, while 
compressing the programming, planning, 
engineering and construction tasks into the 
shortest possible time. 

Perini services include 

Feasibility Studies 

Value Analysis 

Construction Cost Budgeting 


Cost Control 

Schedule Control 


Construction Management 

Contract Mining 

Real Estate Strategic Planning 

Real Estate Development & Management 

An experienced effective management group, 
a spirited productive work force and a long 
history of successful projects guarantee 
Perim's clients the best possible solutions to 
their construction, mining and real estate needs. 

The following pages include representative 
photographs and a partial listing of 
significant projects performed by Perini 
divisions and subsidiaries. Your inquiry for 
additional information on any particular 
operation or service is encouraged. 

Perini Building 


Perini buildings vary in size from snnall 
structures to large skyscrapers. Located 
ttiroughout the world ttiey cover a diversity of 
uses. -Office, Health), Educational, 
Commercial, Residential and Special Works 

Small or large, eacfi building is constructed 
witfi Perim's studied management approachi. 
Cost evaluations begin early in tfie 
programming or planning stages and 
continue throughout the design development, 
construction documents and construction 
Owners are becoming increasingly aware 
that lowest first costs are not the sole 
determinant of a successful project, 
especially in these days of spiraling energy 
and operating charges. Perini offers value 
analysis as a better method of deciding 

where an owner's funds can best be utilized. 

The Boston Federal Reserve Bank required 
an extra measure of ingenuity Built in the 
congested waterfront area of Boston, site 
excavation encountered hundreds of old 
timber piles that had to be removed while 
maintaining the water level at +5 mean sea 
level through extraction and recharging 
procedures, in order to preserve timber 
pilings supporting adjacent structures. A 
grouted, lagged tie-wall was devised to open 
the site for footing installation at -15 to -25 
mean sea level. The total proiect contained 
44,000 c yof concrete and 18,000 tons of 
structural steel.

Perini Building 


In the health services field, the building is an 
envelope tor the housing of equipment, 
systems and personnel— all designed to 
provide an efficient, pleasant environment for 
the delivery of the best in patient care 

Changes in medical technology are rapid. 
On large projects, technology changes 
during a protracted traditional design and 
construction period have often made new 
facilities obsolete at opening. 

To provide the most flexible facilities 
consistent with program and budget 
guidelines and compress the design and 
construction process into the shortest 
possible time, Perini provides construction 
management, fast track, phased construction 
as well as general construction services to 
hospitals, health maintenance organizations, 
nursing and extended care clients

Perini Building 


Commercial projects demand the most 
stringent cost controls during design and 
construction. Their function is to present an 
attractive environment for the display and 
selling of merchandise while keeping real 
estate charges in line with operating 
projections. Although large projects can be 
monumental in form, the function of a 
commercial facility must remain the first 
concern of both designer and contractor. 

Perini builds for retailers and developers, 
offering feasibility studies and construction 
cost budgeting services early in the planning 
and design stages in order to minimize 
unknowns and assure the owner of the 
maximum return on his investment.

Perini Industrial 

Industrial proiects require the marriage of 
building and structure to process and pro- 
duction with a careful precision This preci- 
sion has been developed by Perini divisions 
and subsidiaries through years of construc- 
tion experience on all types and sizes of 
manufacturing facilities, technical centers, 
process plants and mills. 

Perini's Yeargin subsidiary is a "total service" 
contractor, performing mechanical, electri- 
cal, equipment installation and plant mainte- 
nance work with its own forces in addition to 
the normal general construction tasks 

"Total service'means a more efficient man- 
agement organization, better control over the 

major elements of the project and eliminates 
duplication of fees, equipment and supervi- 
sory personnel that exist when major portions 
of the work are subcontracted 

A broad range of services can be tailored to 
meet the industrial client's program and con- 
tract requirements Formats can be engineer/ 
construct, turnkey general construction or 
contract maintenance and terms can be cost 
plus, lump sum or any other feasible approach 
that meets the proiect's special needs.

Once the need has been determined for 
new or expanded manufacturing facilities, 
capital IS committed and industry looks 
for the Shortest possible time frame for 
completion of the engineering /construction 
process. Bringing the contractor on board 
during the initial planning and design phase 
allows the industry to "fast track" the project 
by proceeding with procurement of long 
lead Items and starting site, foundation and 
structural framing construction while 
engineering and documentation are being 
completed on mechanical, electrical and 
finish Items. 

Perim's Yeargin subsidiary put in place a 
1,600,000 square foot steel belted radial 
tire manufacturing plant in Wilson, North 
Carolina for Firestone Tire & Rubber 
Company in 8Vz months from ground 
breaking until the first tire was produced. 
This project required a maximum effort on 
the part of the Yeargin management team, 
with strong emphasis on procurement 
procedures, schedule control and cost

Perini Transportaiion 

Mass Transit 

Transportation projects have been a ma|or 
line of business for Perini since tfie 
company's founding Works fiave pro- 
gressed from single lane gravel roads 
graded witfi mule teams to thie completion of 
ttie iviassactiusetts Turnpike Extension in 1965, 
ttie largest single highway construction 
contract ever awarded in the United 

Innovative development and use of construc- 
tion equipment, record setting production 
rates and accelerated completions are the 
trademarks of Perini transportation projects 

Activities now include urban mass transit 
stations and lines, airport terminals, runways 
and support facilities as well as highway 
grading, paving and structures. 

As energy costs continue to hamper our 
freedom to move materials and people on 
our urban highway systems, the need for 
efficient, safe, rapid mass transit facilities 
will be high priority in all major metropolitan 
areas during the coming years 

In 1976 Perini was awarded the Federal 
Highway Administration, Department of 
Transportation's "Eighth Annual Award — 
The Highway and Its Environment" for an 
elevated portion of Interstate 93 which 
incorporates a rapid transit line and station 
at grade level The award stated that the 
project was "An outstanding example of 
mass transportation within or adjacent to 
the highway right-of-way."

Perini Transportaiion 


From Penni's beginning, road, street and 
highway work have been a basic elennent of 
the company's overall operations— growing 
over the years 

Excavation, grading, aggregate production, 
paving and structures are all part of Penni's 
highway services for municipal, state and 
federal governments, 

Perini crews blast rock, move dirt, crush 
stone and lay concrete with a fleet of the 
latest and most efficient equipment available 
to the construction industry These same tal- 
ents are now being applied to the substantial 
earthmoving and site development require- 
ments of the power and oil shale industries.

Perini Power 


Power projects require the iriteraction of many 
construction disciplines— earth moving, 
aggregate production, sophisticated forming, 
mass concrete pours, tunneling and rigging 
for equipment placement, Perini divisions and 
subsidiaries often combine forces to perform 
these tasks on an integrated total project 

Perini power experience ranges from an earth 
fill hydroelectric dam in Colombia, a concrete 
arch dam in California, a pumped storage 
facility in New York, a twin 1150 MW nuclear 
plant in New Hampshire to the nation's 
pioneering privately owned and operated low 
head twin 15 MW bulb turbine hydroelectric

cialty construction and contract maintenance 
services to the power industry Yeargin installs 
electrostatic precipitators, deaerators, evapo- 
rators and is fully familiar with the procedures 
for work in radioactive contaminated areas.

Perini environmental projects^ 

Waste water and sewage treatment plants 
are similar to industrial projects, a structure 
housing a process R. E. Dailey s Midwest 
Mechanical Division specializes in piping, 
equipment installation, electrical and instru- 
mentation work which are significant portions 
of treatment plant projects. Estimators, engi- 
neers and managers place strong emphasis 
on costing, scheduling, procuring and install- 
ing these systems. 

Cleaning up the Merrimack "one of 
America's 10 most polluted rivers" was 
Perim's goal in constructing the 52 million 
gallons per day waste water treatment plant 
for the Greater Lawrence Sanitary Authority 
The 60 acre site contains 2600 lineal feet

Perini Environmental 


Although cleaning the environment is a 
ma|or concern, controlling the environment 
IS equally important Perini has constructed 
earth fill flood control dams, locks and irriga- 
tion projects to harness, divert and better uti- 
lize nature's gifts for man's well being. 

Perini ingenuity was put to the test at the 
Bloomington Lake Dam site in the upper 
Potomac River Valley along the Maryland- 
West Virginia border The problem— hauling 
10 million cubic yards of embankment from a 
mountain top quarry to the dam site 450 
vertical feet below The solution — a 2400 

foot long conveyor employing a 54 inch 
wide rubber belt dropping to a 1000 ton 
storage bin 50 and 70 ton trucks then carried 
the material to the dam site. The conveyor 
eliminated one and a half miles of steeply 
graded high maintenance haul road as well 
as additional trucks The completed dam is 
296 feet high with a 2310 foot crest length 
impounding 43 billion gallons of water.

Per'mi Pipeline 


Pipeline proiects are equipment intense and 
production oriented. Ttie work flow is lineal, 
with relatively few items but significant quan- 
tities Work units require precise quanti- 
fication and cost analysis to maintain target 
estimates and schedules. 

While pipeline work is installed in an orderly 
run, once right of way preparation has been 
completed, the mobilization and logistics of 
remote sites often require a labor force with 
a pioneering spirit and a management team 
experienced in campsite conditions 

Perims 73% owned subsidian/, Majestic Wiley 
Contractors Limited, has constructed oil and 
gas projects in the Arctic north of Alaska and 
the Northwest Territones under the severest 
weather and soil conditions, in the mountains 
and valleys of untracked forests in British 
Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba 
and Ontario and in the tea plantations of India, 

Majestic Wiley's U S Pipeline Division, head- 
quartered in Lubbock, Texas, is active 
throughout the mountain and plains states 
where petroleum reserves along with oil and 
gas product lines are bringing Alaskan and 
Western fuels to satisfy the energy demands of 
urban and industrial complexes from Minne- 
apolis to Houston 

One of Perini Arctic Associates proudest 
moments was the receipt of the following 


V.N. Osadchuk

"By fully completing the installation of VSM's 
within your section, on July 8, 1976, you are

Perini Tunnel 

Recent impressive strides in engineering 
technology have dramatically changed tun- 
nel and shaft construction procedures The 
introduction of new machinery has resulted 
in production rates and advances thought 
impossible just a few years ago. Tunnel 
boring machines (moles), slurry shields and 
ground freezing methods now provide alter- 
natives to the engineer and contractor where 
adverse geological conditions previously 
prohibited conventional driving and sinking 

While new machines and methods can 
greatly accelerate the pace of construction, 
save time and, in some cases, provide the 
rationale for considenng a tunnel or shaft 
project, underground work will always con- 
tain an element of risk Even with the most 
detailed geological investigations, careful 
evaluations and design considerations, in 
situ conditions often vary widely from those 
predicted before start of construction 

With four decades of growth and a history of 
successful tunnel and shaft projects. Perini 
has developed a top-flight team of engineers, 
estimators, technicians and managers experi- 
enced in all aspects of tunnel and shaft proj- 
ects Today Penni tunnelers stand ready to 
engineer and construct underground water, 
waste conduits and transit systems for public 
agencies as well as undertake the planning 
and construction of vitally needed projects to 
recover, move and store natural resources for 
the utility, mining, oil and gas industries.

Perini Mining 

Mining activities date back to 1944 when 
the company first entered the coal fields of 
Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and West Vir- 
ginia. The war years found Perini working on 
highways and army camps in several of the 
coal states. With manpower and equipment 
already in place, surface mining was a 
natural progression. For several years, until 
the pressing wartime need for coal eased, 
Perim's mining operations produced in ex- 
cess of one million tons of coal per year 

Mining activities were dormant dunng the 
late 1950s and 60s, In 1970 Perini 
reorganized Majestic Mining, Inc, and re- 
entered the coal fields by opening up 
surface mines at Wise. Virginia and 
Widen, West Virginia, Expansion 
continued at the Widen property with the 
construction of a preparation plant and 
the start-up of deep mine activities in 1976. 
Widen activities continue to develop with 
increased separation capability at the prepa- 
ration plant and productions now approach 
one million tons per year once again. 

The mining operations group seeks property 
acquisitions and leases and offers mine 
development, mine operation and contract 
mining services to property owners, mining 
firms and utility companies on a single or 
composite task basis.

Geotechnical Engineers 


The engineering firm of McPhail Associates, Inc. was established in 1976 to pro- 
vide cost-effective geotechnical engineering and construction consultation serv- 
ices to Architects, Engineers, Owners and Contractors engaged primarily in the 
building, heavy construction and environmental industries. 

The corporate office is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and contains both 
engineering offices and laboratory testing facilities. The professional staff 
includes individuals with backgrounds in Civil Engineering, Geotechnical Engineer- 
ing, and Geology, all of whom have advanced degrees in the geotechnical engineer- 
ing discipline. 

Our key engineers have had extensive experience in subsurface investigations, geo- 
technical analysis and design, design assistance to Structural Engineers and Archi- 
tects, and construction control for more than 500 building, environmental, water- 
front, and heavy construction projects. Two aspects of our background and experi- 
ence have been invaluable in developing our perspective as it relates to practical 
and economical geotechnical design and construction. 

First, having participated with a considerable number of highly qualified design 
teams representing a broad spectrum of disciplines, we appreciate the service role 
of the Geotechnical Engineer to the other members of the design team. We are 
oriented towards providing timely design assistance which ensures proper implementa- 
tion of the geotechnical design recommendations into the Contract Documents. Design 
assistance includes consultation, preparation of earthwork, pile and caisson speci- 
fications, review of foundation plans, details and notes, and coordination with 
other technical sections and the bid form. 

Second, we have provided extensive geotechnical construction consultation, design 
and inspection services to Contractors and Owners for many difficult deep excavations 
requiring cofferdams, tied-back and braced earth support systems, underpinning, 
rock slope stabilization, and groundwater control or pressure relief systems. This 
experience has emphasized the necessity of anticipating foundation construction 
techniques and recognizing their impact upon the overall economics of the founda- 
tion design. 

Since its inception, McPhail Associates, Inc. has provided geotechnical engineer- 
ing services for projects valued at more than 5.7 billion dollars worldwide. Our 
key engineers have worked on projects throughout the United States, in Canada, and in 
the Middle East, but the majority of our projects has been in New England. Many 
have been in greater Boston with its difficult subsurface conditions.
