Built on energy conservation

With paving underway, the construction of the new 475-car central parking structure at Cummings' Dunham Road business campus in Beverly nears completion. The structure will provide ample free parking for clients of the existing building at 50 Dunham Road and future clients of the planned 144,000-square-foot, mixed-use building at 48 Dunham Road.

Cummings energy conservation philosophy was considered throughout the garage's design.  The low-maintenance concrete structure was cast in Vermont by Daily Precast; the roof is covered with a 832-panel solar array and interior lighting is by occupancy sensing LEDs; and stone unearthed during excavation was used to sheath the lower section of the garage.

While Nemo, the first official Boston area blizzard in nearly five years, howled through New England on February 8, Cummings Properties' Snow Team worked through the night and following days to maintain access to more than 80 properties. Our team demonstrated Cummings' commitment to facility maintenance, even in the fiercest winter conditions. This video from Cummings Center in Beverly showcases the plowing operations in front of the blue LED lighting of new northwest parking deck.
