Coreslab Expands Medford MBTA Facility

MBTA improves services with Wellington Car House Expansion.

Medford, MA –  Coreslab Structures (CONN) Inc. is currently working on the expansion of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) Wellington Carhouse Facility located in Medford.

The project broke ground in 2017, and includes the addition of an enclosed service bay onto the existing structure.

STV Incorporated is serving as the designer on the project.

The addition is being completed using industrial-type concrete panels. The new bay will face the passenger platform on the Wellington station to provide a more refined look. The design incorporates a light-colored concrete with dark stone exposed through a medium sand-blast finish.

STV chooses durable materials for the project.

The panels also have curved vertical reveals with a pattern that varies from panel to panel. The high performance precast panels also support an insulated metal panel up to a total height of 34 feet, with both connected to a structural steel framework.
