Boston, MA United States | 2007
The Pergolas at the North End Parks of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway is a structure built over three acres of open space created when Boston went through its "Big Dig" that removed elevated steel highways and diverted traffic underground.
The design of this structure was intended to suit the neighborhood. To ensure the Pergolas structure fit those parameters, the steel was coated with hot-dip galvanizing to avoid corrosion and painted with the duplex system for its visual appearance and compatibility with the other designs of the park. The pergolas, exposed to harsh sunlight, required a durable, high quality coating system that could withstand the elements.
After applying the hot-dip galvanizing all structural vertical and horizontal steel components, the pieces received the duplex system paint, an epoxy/urethane coating and a clear topcoat to provide UV protection. The result was a structure fully galvanized to provide outstanding corrosion protection, aesthetic appeal, and long-lasting coverage.
