The F.W. Webb location in South Boston is proud to be one of Boston's many green buildings using energy wisely and contributing to the city's impressive designation by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy as the most energy efficient city in the nation.
The Webb facility in Boston's iconic "Southie" neighborhood features a geothermal hybrid HVAC system, photo voltaic solar panels, energy-saving lighting fixtures, low-water toilets and faucets, Energy Star-rated systems, additional insulation beyond code, and bicycle racks.
Situated at 307 Dorchester Ave., the 44,000-sq.-ft. location houses an F.W. Webb self-service wholesale counter store and Frank Webb's destination bath, kitchen and lighting showroom – both supported by a large warehouse teeming with inventory.
One of Webb’s busiest, this location services contractors, builders, designers, architects, engineers, and homeowners in the heart of one of the largest construction booms in Boston's 387-year history.
