Beverly, MA – Windover Construction, an award-winning construction management firm specializing in academic facilities, announced the completion of two recent projects with Endicott College: the Ginger Judge Science Center Expansion and the first phase of the Samuel C. Wax Academic Center.
This summer, Windover is also working on the 17,000sf, fast-track renovations and modifications to the Myrt Harper Rose Hall, formerly home to the Van Loan School, which will provide new senior and graduate residences for students this fall.
After building the award-winning 67,000sf Gerrish School of Business and Ginger Judge Science Center in 2013, Windover was selected to provide design-build services for the 15,000sf, four-story addition to the science center.
Completed in June, Windover worked closely with SV Design on the expansion that features three floors dedicated to engineering studies with incubator and makerspace labs, classrooms, and offices to accommodate Endicott’s rapid growth in STEM fields, along with a first-floor college tavern, Gully’s. Located in the center of campus, the brick and metal panel façades seamlessly blend the steel-framed structure into the existing facility.
Also completed in June with architect partner, Bergmeyer, Phase 1 of the new design-build Samuel C. Wax Academic Center is the first of two buildings that together will serve the college’s arts and sciences, education, communication, and hospitality curricula, as well as the Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
The completed Phase 1 provides the school 78,000sf of classroom and administration space as well as a 58,000sf precast parking garage. Phase 2, now underway and to be completed in December 2020, will feature a 32,000sf classroom building with a 1,060-seat lecture hall and 150-seat café. The buildings will enclose a landscaped quadrangle area at the heart of the campus.
In partnership with Endicott since 2008, Windover has worked on 23 total projects totaling $162.4 million to help the college keep pace with a growing student enrollment. With the exception of three projects, all work has been completed following a design-build approach.
Windover has managed multiple campus projects concurrently, including building new classrooms, laboratories and residence halls, as well as a student center, main dining area, and an auditorium. Windover has become a trusted partner for Endicott, providing pre-design, preconstruction, and construction services to fulfill the college’s strategic master plan.
Some notable projects Windover has completed with Endicott include, but are not limited to, Standish Residence Hall, Peter Frates Residence Hall, Raymond J. Bourque Ice Arena, and Callahan Student Center & Dining Hall.
“I am most proud of our relationship and the projects we’ve completed with Endicott College,” said Lee Dellicker, CEO of Windover Construction. “Having formed a connection with the college over 11 years ago, I am humbled by the trust the institution continues to instill upon Windover. This trust empowers us to be a steward and advocate of their continued growth.”
“We are continually impressed by Windover’s dedication to our institution and the craftsmanship they put into each and every project on our growing campus,” said Dr. Kathleen Barnes of Endicott College. “The fruitful 11-year relationship is a result of Windover’s ability to integrate with the students, faculty, and decision-makers at Endicott, interweaving our history and overall vision.”
