The Cambridge construction site is an unmarked location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


The construction site is located west of Bunker Hill, southeast of the Mass Chemical building. The location can be divided into three points of interest, including a small garage to the west, the unfinished building, and the warehouse to the north.


West of the construction site, in front of the chained door exiting the unfinished building basement, is the garage. It contains a Pick-R-Up, a couple of wooden crates, and a weapons workbench.

Unfinished building

This building consists of nine floors and a basement. There are three finished floors with a few rooms, and several unfinished levels. The seventh floor features a fallen green sign that connects to the nearby broken section of the freeway.

A machine gun turret is located just inside the main entrance. A weapons workbench is located on the fourth floor. A steamer trunk is located on the eighth floor. A precariously placed cooler sits on the end of one of the girders that comprise the ninth (top) floor. Dropping down the elevator shaft leads to the partially flooded basement containing a steamer trunk.

On the broken section of the overpass accessed from the seventh floor is a toppled trailer to the north with a locked trailer door (Master lock). This contains a Vault 81 steamer trunk. To the south is a construction lift that ascends to the top tier of the overpass, and another lift is further south (though there is nothing of value on the top tier). It is possible to jump to the next section of the road and continue past this lift to arrive above the garden terrace. At the end, it is possible to descend some stairs and continue over a walkway to a door into the Commonwealth Bank.

Construction site warehouse

To the north of the construction site is the warehouse. It has two doors, one leading to the construction site, the other to Charlestown. It houses a forklift mounted on caterpillar tracks. A sleeping bag can be accessed on the catwalk. A super mutant is usually guarding the building.
