Wellesley College Science Center Renovation
Architect(s): Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP & Jacobs
Contractor: Turner Construction
Job Description: Sydney Science completed a $2M design-assist installation at Wellesley College with Turner Construction in the Fall of 2019, furnishing and installing new epoxy countertops onto existing metal bases, custom teaching walls, special equipment and related casework. The newly-renovated 300,000 GSF Science Center, the largest building on campus, contains classrooms, offices, research facilities, and new teaching laboratories in an 'innovation hub' designed to allow students to see the work in a range of sciences and to give faculty the space for pedagogical innovation. This project presented many unique challenges for Sydney that we were able to work through quickly and efficiently in order to keep the job on schedule.
