Sun Life of Canada

Sun Life of Canada expanded its existing office park on Route 128, adding 117,900 square feet of office space and an 887 car parking structure. This expansion took place on a small, highly restricted site having wetlands, flood plain, zoning, and traffic constraints. A very complex process for permitting was required in order to obtain 15 permits from local, regional, state and federal agencies.

The site design turned former site problems into site amenities; a sprawling parking lot became the site for the new office building and parking structure. A trash-laden brook was cleaned up and widened to form a pond contained by stone walls and brick terraces. The pond provides storm water detention and is the source of water for an irrigation system.

A wooded portion of the site was developed with jogging and exercise trails, and wooden boardwalks were installed for wetland crossings. Plant materials were used to screen noise and views from Route 128; rooftop plantings were used on the parking structure to soften its visual impact on an adjacent residential neighborhood.
