Milford, MA – In time for the start of the summer 2019 season, Consigli Construction Co., Inc. has completed construction of a new four-building complex at the Tanglewood Festival in Lenox.
The state-of-the-art Linde Center for Music and Learning will support the performances and rehearsal activities of the Tanglewood Music Center, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s (BSO) prestigious summer music academy, and the Tanglewood Learning Institute (TLI), a new initiative that offers wide-ranging education and enrichment programs to enhance the patron experience. This new complex makes it possible for the first time ever for Tanglewood facilities to be open year-round.
The new performance and rehearsal facilities can accommodate an audience of up to 200 people. The complex also encompasses multimedia education and lecture program spaces with a seating capacity of up to 300 people and a wide variety of social and dining events such as a 150-seat dining cafe for visitors.
The four highly sustainable buildings on the 524-acre Tanglewood campus were purposefully designed to be climate-controlled, so they can be used by the Berkshire community in the off-season. The signature facilities feature buildings shaped and built with world-class materials for the best possible acoustics, high-end HVAC systems, sound and vibration isolation treatments, wood and curtain wall façade and intricate millwork fabricated by Consigli and installed by the company’s self-perform team.
Consigli worked with architecture firm William Rawn Associates Architects on this project, and the new complex is pending USGBC LEED Gold certification.
