Cogswell Sprinkler Works on Hotel Project

The new Hyatt Centric in Boston

Boston – Cogswell Sprinkler Co., Inc. is currently working towards completion of the fire protection installation for a new hotel, Hyatt Centric Boston, located at the Congress Square development in the Financial District.

The project incorporates an existing 12-story, 53,072sf building at 68 Devonshire Street with a new 13-story horizontal addition on the adjacent vacant lot, with challenging logistics in a high-traffic urban area.

The sprinkler installation consists of a wet pipe sprinkler system with an electric fire pump, pressure reducing valves, and multiple zones throughout.

Cogswell Sprinkler Company’s project management team of Mike O’Donoghue and Mike Carpenter, along with Foreman Jesse Torrez, are working together with project coordinator Matt Ward and Consigli Construction to bring this project to completion for a 2018 opening.

Hyatt’s new Millennial-minded, upscale lifestyle boutique hotel emphasizes individual, social design that captures local flavor, centered about The Corner (Hyatt Centric hotels’ signature craft cocktail lounge) and a locally themed bar and restaurant.
