Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport


Located near and connected to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center via an underground tunnel, the new Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport includes more than 1,000 rooms and offers guests views of the city and harbor. The twenty-one-story building houses one of the city’s largest ballrooms along with a second ballroom and other meeting spaces. Guests can enjoy many amenities, including a pool deck, spa, and fitness center. SGH provided building enclosure consulting and commissioning services for the project.

SGH collaborated with the project team on the building enclosure design, bidding and design-assist process, construction, and commissioning. Highlights of our work include:

  • Consulting on the design of the building enclosure, including below-grade and tunnel waterproofing, facades, bridge connections, and roofing systems for the project
  • Establishing performance expectations by developing the BECx plan and specification and outlining testing requirements, project team roles and responsibilities, and procedures for documenting and resolving construction-related issues
  • Supporting the project team’s effort in obtaining LEED certification
  • Developing two-and-three dimensional enclosure details and working with the project team to coordinate the unitized curtain wall systems with the other enclosure systems
  • Providing construction administration services, including reviewing contractor submittals, conducting field performance testing, and working with the project team to address conditions encountered during construction
  • Evaluating performance during a ten-month, post-occupancy site visit
