Alimak Service has won a major building maintenance unit refurbishment project to be delivered at International Place, Boston, and completed in 2019. The USA Alimak Service team will refurbish four Manntech BMUs, of which three were installed in 1986 and one in 1990. The units to be refurbished are located at levels 20, 28, 36, and 46. The program offered by Alimak Service will include new control and electrical upgrades and replacement of stack bearings, screw nuts for the jibs, flooring for the platform, and platform covers.

The building owner, Chiofaro Management Company of Boston chose Alimak Service to undertake this major project based on their vast experience in refurbishing BMUs in complex building spaces whilst minimizing disruption to the building’s occupants. Replacing existing BMU’s with new is not always possible due to extended cost and logistics of removing the old unit from the roof and installing the new – this is when refurbishment becomes the perfect solution. The result in this case will be four Manntech BMUs installed with the latest electronic hardware and software and certified to the most recent safety standards.
