UMass Amherst Student Union Building to be Renovated

| May 29, 2018

Boston –  Shepley Bulfinch, a national architecture firm, has been selected to design the revitalization of the 108,000 GSF Student Union building on the University of Massachusetts (UMass) flagship campus in Amherst, Mass. The approximately $55 million Student Union renovation will transform the facility into a modern hub of student activity and interaction, while reinvigorating the historic campus core around it.

With a focus on re-connecting the building to nature and the surrounding landscape, the renovated Student Union will radiate outward from the geographical heart of the campus to once again become the nexus of student engagement.

Shepley Bulfinch’s design will integrate the University’s broader sustainability goals for building performance and energy efficiency with an eye toward LEED certification. The project is anticipated to be complete by fall 2020.

The project team includes: architect: Shepley Bulfinch; mechanical/electrical/plumbing: Vanderweil Engineers; landscape architecture: CRJA-IBI Group; and structural / building envelope / sustainability: Thornton Thomasetti.
