Boston – Suffolk announced it successfully delivered the 245 Beacon Street integrated science facility for Boston College.
The $150 million building is the largest single investment in the sciences at Boston College. The new state-of-the-art science center will be home to the Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society and 150,000sf of classrooms, labs, faculty offices, and collaboration and maker spaces to teach and conduct research in computer science robotics, prototype research and nanotechnology research.
“Suffolk is thrilled to have successfully delivered this incredible integrated science center to Boston College on schedule and on budget,” said Jeffrey Gouveia, general manager of Suffolk Northeast. “We are proud to have played a role in managing construction of this state-of-the-art building for exploring the worlds of science, technology, entrepreneurship and innovation while developing solutions to address our greatest global challenges.”
Suffolk managed construction of the building in the heart of an operational Boston College campus. As a result of early planning and close collaboration with Boston College and the trade partners, the project team was able to minimize risk and address challenges related to the heavy student traffic, campus location and accelerated schedule.
