Boston – ARC/Architectural Resources Cambridge has completed a $10.3 Million renovation and addition of Weston Hall at Williams College to create a new front door for the College and provide a new home for the Admissions and Financial Aid Offices. Weston Hall features 22,000 square feet of new office, social, presentation, and meeting spaces, many them designed to welcome students and their families advancing through the admissions and financial aid applications process. The project earned LEED© Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for its sustainable design.
“The project converted what had become a warren of dark rooms into a welcoming place for prospective students and their families and for current students visiting financial aid,” said Jim Kolesar, Assistant to the President for Community and Government Relations.
“ARC teamed with Williams College to design a newly-reinvented Weston Hall by taking a long-term view of the opportunities to offer both a warm and inviting space and a building that will provide energy efficiency benefits for years to come,” said Jan Taylor AIA, ARC’s project architect.
