Boston – BOND recently celebrated the topping-off ceremony for Boston College’s 245,000sf residence hall at 2150 Commonwealth Avenue.
This new residential facility will provide an additional 490 student beds in a mix of apartment-style suites for BC students. Construction of the building follows the demolition and abatement of St. Thomas More Hall, completed by BOND while maintaining a strong focus on safety, especially given the project’s proximity to the busy Commonwealth Avenue corridor.
BOND worked closely with Boston College stakeholders and the design team at EYP to institute Lean methodologies throughout construction to maximize value and minimize waste for the college. Pull planning and small batch execution have been integral in keeping the project on schedule.
The 2150 Commonwealth Avenue Residence Hall is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification and will be completed in June 2016, in time for the 2016 academic year.
