About:

Originally known as the Davis & Furber Machine Shop, East Mills is a mixed-use development by RCG LLC. Located in North Andover’s historic Machine Shop Village district, near Interstate 495, East Mill includes over 200,000 square feet of brick and beam space set around an attractive mill pond. This renovation is the centerpiece of the revitalization of this business district in North Andover.

DCI provided full land surveying and engineering design services for the site development, roadways and parking for this restoration project. The East Mills restoration converts a historic mill structure into a mixed-use complex incorporating residential, office and retail uses.

DCI provided significant hydraulics and hydrology consulting services to this adaptive re-use project. Specifically, DCI discovered a buried culvert that the client did not know existed, and then erected a structure around it to allow for access and maintenance. DCI filed a Request for Determination of Applicability from MassDEP for the site, which is adjacent to the Merrimack River and contains a pond.

DCI also performed traffic assessment and planning services for this mixed-use complex, including a study for a fully phased development.

Construction Cost:

$6 million
