BOSTON POP-UP RETAIL SHOPS
Without two key benefits of SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION—least site impact and schedule acceleration—the Pop-Up Retail Shops installed in Boston, MA would not have been feasible. Conventional, site-built construction was simply too disruptive. The constrained site in the extremely dense urban setting not only lacked sufficient laydown area, but the extended disruption that conventional construction would have imposed on surrounding retail businesses, green spaces, parking areas, and Seaport Boulevard traffic would have been too great.
With SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION, 90% of construction took place far away from the site. And when it came time for delivery, the mini pop-up shops were installed in just 6 hours. The schedule acceleration of SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION not only avoided months of construction hazards, noise, and dirt, but enabled to shops to be constructed in just 60 days—with minimal site prep—allowing the shops to open on time for the summer selling season.
