It’s been a hot one this summer, but the heat hasn’t slowed us down! We’ve been busy working on many exciting projects, welcoming new team members and maintaining boiler rooms across New England. As the summer comes to a close, we’re looking back at a few highlights.

On the job:

One exciting project we’ve been working on is at a large office building in downtown Boston. We spent a Saturday using a crane to hoist boilers up to the 9th floor and we should have them up and running very soon. Stay tuned for our fall issue of Pipeline for an in depth look at this project!

One of the greatest challenges with this project was to get the equipment up to the 9th floor.  Unfortunately, the elevators were not going to be feasible based on sheer size. We were fortunate to work with some of our superb sub-contractors and collectively we came up with a great game plan that worked like a charm. We look forward to having these two water tube boilers up and running within the next few weeks. Well in time for the heating season.”  - Geoff Wilkinson, Jr., President, The Wilkinson Companies
