Boston – STV|DPM has been awarded the contract for the extensive renovation and improvement of the Wentworth Institute of Technology Library in Boston.
STV|DPM will assist in all aspects of the $18 million renovation effort, including management of the design, construction, and building commissioning phases. In addition, it will assist the client in assembling the project team, as well as oversee permitting, project schedule and budget, change orders, furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E), move management, and final closeout.
Jim Kolb, STV|DPM vice president, and Tim Singleton, senior project manager, are leading the project team. Together, they’re working with Wentworth’s oversight committee, the Division of Technology Services, library and facilities staff, students, and faculty. The mission is to create a new space that will accommodate 760 seats while incorporating Wentworth’s vision of enhanced library learning, technology, research, and collaboration.
Douglas D. Schumann, a Wentworth alumnus, longtime benefactor, trustee emeritus, and 2008 honorary degree recipient at the school, has given $5 million to the project. The library will be named The Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons in his honor.
The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2016.
