Later this week, the Harvard Graduate School of Design will commence an interior renovation and exterior renovation construction project at 20 Sumner Road. The project encompasses an energy retrofit of the existing 20 Sumner Road house and property to target ambitious sustainable goals that can work within the context of a traditional wood frame house. The house’s siding, roof, windows, cooling system, and other building materials, will be replaced. The project also includes landscaping and accessibility upgrades.
What to Expect During Construction
- General work hours Monday through Friday 7:00am- 4:00pm, and potentially Saturdays 9:00am-6:00pm. Please note that work may be extended to 6:00pm during weekdays when needed.
- A road closure will take place over the summer for a few days during general work hours for utility work.
- Sidewalk reconstruction in front of the property is scheduled for August 2017
- Neighbors will be notified of all road closures and pedestrian detours several days in advance of the scheduled work.
- This project is expected to be completed in December 2017.
