Worcester Polytechnic Institute
This 77,000 square foot, mixed-use facility includes rapid prototyping maker space, a group project area, a robotics area, a business incubator, Great Problem Solving Seminar Classrooms, and residential life.
Located directly off the main quad, the building is 5 stories with construction costs of $38,000,000. With an active academic campus environment, we relocated locker rooms, and installed a temporary access road for new construction. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
Berklee College of Music
William Rawn Architects
Lee Kennedy Construction Company
Completed in 2014, this 16-story facility is in the heart of Berklee’s urban campus. The building provides housing for 330 students and has a three-level food service facility, which seats 400 and doubles as a coffee-house performance venue. There is also a small fitness center, three ensemble rooms, and twenty modular music practice rooms. Below grade are two levels of state-of-the-art recording and music technology studios.
Located on a zero-lot-line 13,200 square foot site, the below grade construction was particularly challenging, with 36- to 40-foot depths and foundation walls as close as five feet from adjacent buildings.
