Whipple River Place – Ipswich, MA
BWK Construction Co., Inc. served as the General Contractor for the Whipple River Place project. The project was developed by The North Shore Housing Trust and entailed the conversion of a dormant manufacturing facility into fixed income apartments for seniors. The building has a new elevator and is fully ADA compliant. The apartments are bright and spacious with large windows that overlook the river. Laundry facilities, a community lounge and off-street parking are also provided. One of the more interesting facets of the renovation was the installation of a green roof, which captures rainfall via vegetation that is planted on top of the rubber roofing system, thereby minimizing runoff.
