MBTA-Beverly Station Parking Garage
The MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) has had a long standing policy of providing initial quality to minimize future maintenance and obsolescence. Their familiarity with hot dip galvanizing and galvanizer applied coatings, particularly in areas that could not easily be accessed, was a major factor in the decision to specify the Colorgalv process.
Many of the steel components, including the mesh infill panels on the rail system, stringers, risers, bollards, etc. in the Beverly Station garage, are located in areas that would require station shut-down and costly remediation if refurbishment was to be required.
The application of a safety yellow visibility strip on the stairs and a safety yellow coating on the bollards and bumper rail were another advantage of specifying the process.
