The Avenir Building (Avenir) is the first building to rise in the historic Bulfinch Triangle since the overhead Central Artery was demolished. Avenir reclaims a full city block, re-knitting surrounding neighborhoods, and providing 241 apartments and 40,000 sq ft of retail to bring new life to the commercial district. ICON Architecture Inc. (ICON)’s vision for the building included optimal indoor air quality, state-of-the-art energy-efficient design and durable building enclosure materials that require little maintenance for the life of the building. SGH provided building enclosure consulting services focused on design detailing and construction quality.
