Copley Head House, Boston


CBI replaced this historic ironwork structure for the ornamental ironwork of the subway station to meet code, performance, aesthetic, and historical requirements.


CBI analyzed and designed the structural steel framing for the refurbished Copley Station Head House located on Boylston Street in Boston, Massachusetts.  The head house is clad in ornamental ironwork that was restored at DeAngelis Iron Works.  CBI designed a replacement frame that met the load requirements of the Massachusetts State Building Code while conforming to the original architectural style of the historic head house.
