Boott Cotton Mills
Lowell, MA

Project

Boott Cotton Mills, a legendary textile mill built on the Merrimack River, has served as one of the most significant industrial sites in the United States during the Industrial Revolution. EnviroVantage took part in environmentally freshening up the mills to bring them into compliance for residential use.

Role

In preparation for the immense renovation of the structure, EnviroVantage successfully cleaned up the mill in 3 phases. First, the unoccupied units were abated and cleaned up, next the lead paint was removed from all of the occupied units, and last the common areas were all sandblasted and safely brought to the up to date standards of today.
Major Challenge

EnviroVantage had to be very careful in removing the hazardous lead paint by hand scraping all posts, beams and wood ceilings. Since the natural wood was going to be exposed in the modern housing units, employees needed to pay special attention to detail to preserve the wood’s historic look and restore it back to its original beauty.
Result

Now, the 19th century historic mill is home to the Waterfront Lofts including studio, one and two-bedroom lofts featuring exposed brick, beams and natural wood ceilings. The classic landmark has been fully restored and updated with every modern amenity.
