Project Spotlight:

A new 17-story mixed used building is rising in Fenway, Boston – 1350 Boylston St! It will feature 212 rental residential apartments, about 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and an underground parking garage for 105 cars.

One of Kenseal’s valued customers was awarded the firestopping for this new building. Kenseal Sales Representative Kevin Cocuzzo, with the assistance of the Kenseal team and STI manufacturer representative, supported our customer throughout this project. The STI firestopping line was a sound choice for this scope of work and in stock and readily available at Kenseal.
