Park Street Station is the oldest subway station in the United States.  As part of a system-wide upgrade of light rail transit stations for improved accessibility, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) needed to make structural modifications, which included removing columns that were too close to the edges of platforms.  SGH assisted the contractor by reviewing the proposed shoring requirements and suggesting alternate means and methods that allowed them to successfully accomplish the work.
