Edmand’s House

Framingham, MA

The moderate rehabilitation of an affordable housing development, Edmand’s House was originally built in 1973 and is comprised of two six-story buildings and 190 units. The primary renovation work involved replacing the heating system from an electrical baseboard to a high-efficiency hot water baseboard heating system and installing a gas-fired co-generation system for power generation for one building. Additional sustainability upgrades included new high-efficiency windows and sliding doors, low flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting and occupancy sensors, and new roof insulation and membrane.

Other notable work included safety improvements, accessibility upgrades, kitchen and bathroom enhancements, and the complete renovation of the management offices, hallways, lobbies, and common areas. Underutilized common space was revitalized to provide residents with a fitness center, computer learning center, and a community room. New exterior amenities include a landscaped courtyard, playground, and walking paths with new exterior lighting. Interiors in collaboration with Beacon Concepts.
