Tufts Addition Opens: Bowdoin and FA+A design/build team

Grafton, MA – Bowdoin Construction and Finegold Alexander + Associates recently celebrated the grand opening of the Agnes Varis Campus Center addition at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.

The project features a tiered-seating auditorium accommodating 180 students with acoustical paneling and state-of-the-art A/V systems, reception areas, restrooms and a large corridor with slate and retroplated concrete flooring. The exterior features an entrance plaza with sitting wall, a two-story glass vestibule and a facade of sculpted slate, brick and metal paneling.

Prior to the auditorium addition, Bowdoin and Finegold Alexander completed the adaptive reuse of an existing and abandoned 95-year-old 16,000sf four-story structure into a new multi-use campus center for Tufts.
