Located in the eclectic Kendall Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, 50-60 Binney Street is a pair of contemporary mixed-use office buildings. At 10 storeys high, the buildings house a mixed-use lab, office and retail space and a multi-level parking garage. The exterior of the buildings is characterized by a minimal glass and metal finish featuring an innovative curtain wall system, terraced edge and louvers.

Pro-Bel Technical Solution

Our team designed a combination davit and anchor system to provide bosuns chair and suspended platform (swing stage) access for window washing and remedial façade maintenance. We designed a separate anchor system for parts of the northern and western facades; in these areas, suspended work is to be done in combination with contractor supplied portable outrigger beams. The counterweighted outrigger beams are tied back to the Pro-Bel safety anchors.
