MBTA Award Collage

2015 PCI DESIGN AWARD - We are proud to announce that DESMAN’s Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) Salem Intermodal Commuter Rail Station in Salem, MA, has won the 2015 PCI Design Award for Best All-Precast Concrete Parking Structure!

Now in its 53rd year, the PCI Design Awards program recognizes design excellence and construction quality using precast concrete.

“We loved the ability to embed the special railroad and local history right in the facade of the building by exploiting the plasticity of precast concrete. Unistress [the precast concrete producer] embraced the artistic aspect of this and took extra care in constructing, handling, and placing these unique elements.”
-Joseph Clark, Associate at DESMAN Connecticut
