AUTHORS: Daniel J. Boudreau, Jr, GISP, GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc.

ABSTRACT: In 2016 GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. was engaged by MA DCR to conduct a detailed assessment of conditions of Fort Warren and related site features on Georges Island in Boston Harbor, Massachusetts. GZA’s scope of work included a review of the significant history of Georges Island and Fort Warren, a review of similar Third System forts, an assessment of the Site for safety and structural concerns, observation and documentation of general conditions of the Site, consideration for potential window closure options, observation of code and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance issues, and recommendations to address items observed during field activities. GZA documented field observations in a geospatial database, using mobile GIS, to provide a viable and useful way to sort and view the observations. This database is to be utilized by the DCR as an asset management tool in the future as a way to document changes in conditions, repairs, and operational/seasonal needs and is accessible via a web application from desktop and mobile devices.
