Cambridge, MA – Nauset Construction announced that construction has been completed for two new rooftop terraces designed by CBT Architects and located on the second and 21st floors of the luxurious Watermark Kendall West mixed-use community in the heart of Kendall Square.
The second floor terrace is constructed of an energy-efficient roofing membrane designed to resist ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure. Brazilian hardwood and concrete pavers were constructed above the membrane to provide seating and meeting space along with newly constructed badminton and bocce courts. The 21st floor rooftop terrace offers breathtaking panoramic views of Cambridge, the Charles River, and Downtown Boston. The 3,000sf terrace features Brazilian hardwood decking, concrete pavers, seating and meeting space with high-end finishes, custom-fabricated planters, living walls, drought-tolerant grasses and plantings.
The project’s scope of work also included the renovation of four apartment units on the 20th floor involving the removal of the ceilings to install a steel support system to hold the added weight of the roof top terrace, as well as the reconfiguration of the drainage systems to accommodate the new ecosystem above.
