Weston, MA – Suffolk Construction has been selected to perform preconstruction and construction management services for Phase 1 of the Regis College campuswide renovation in Weston. The first phase consists of a $24 million renovation to upgrade dormitories and campus facilities and a quadrangle that will transform the pedestrian experience.
The renovation will include a 72-bed suite-style, four-story dormitory addition that will expand Maria Hall by 31,000sf. The upgrades will feature enhanced fire protection to Angela, Domitilla, and Maria Halls, as well as campuswide utility improvements to the water and electrical services. A new quad and walkway, providing security and lighting, will convert the existing focal point of the campus into a green space, connecting the quadrangle, athletic and science centers, and the Spellman Philatelic Museum. The library entrance will also be changed to face the campus’ new quad.
The Suffolk team is utilizing Target Value Design and Lean construction techniques to ensure efficient project delivery, that is scheduled for completion in June 2015. The architect firm is Sasaki Associates Inc., and Colliers International is the owner’s project manager.
Regis College is currently applying for a grant for a new science center, which is proposed for Phase 2. Also included in Phase 2 are renovations to the existing student center as well as additional renovations to the library, dormitories, and athletic center.
