Jones Payne worked in collaboration with the Revere Housing Authority (RHA) under contract with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) to sound insulate Alfred C. Liston Towers (Liston Towers) in Revere, MA. Liston Towers is a 6-story elderly housing development containing 103 occupied apartments. In compliance with Massport’s Residential Sound Insulation Program (RSIP), Jones Payne provided design and construction administration services to reduce noise levels inside the building.
Massport created the RSIP to enhance airport/community relations and quality of life for residents living in noise-impacted communities surrounding Boston Logan International Airport.
The RHA hired Jones Payne to provide architectural design and construction administration services for building envelope renovations at Liston Towers. Jones Payne developed specifications to ensure as little disruption to tenants as possible. Renovations included the replacement of brick veneer at the rear of building, through-wall flashing and sealant, balcony upgrades, select window and door replacements, and selective interior upgrades.
