Architect CBT
Size 9,400 sq.ft.
Cost $13,100,000

Constructed in 1798, the historic Massachusetts State House is located across from the Boston Common on the top of Beacon Hill. Having been expanded several times, the last addition took place in 1917 to the east and west wings. The Senate Chamber is located directly under the iconic golden dome. At the base of the inverted rim are 368 pieces of carved wood each representing a degree of the compass while on the corners of each wall are carved emblems representing commerce, agriculture, war, and peace. The Senate Chamber will undergo a full renovation and restoration while still preserving the 200-year-old architecture.

CES is serving as the commissioning agent for this project and is part of a house doctor contract that CES holds with the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM). Tasks associated with this house doctor contract will include commissioning of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems in the Senate Chamber.
