  44. 44. let there be light emmanuel college: julie hall project type: Residence Hall area: 54,000 Square Feet Boston, MA Julie Hall has tremendous sentimental value to many but its original layout was an old–fashioned double-loaded, corridor style residence hall. The project was a challenge in other respects: no documentation existed for the original building nor for the subsequent office renovations. The schedule required extreme coordination and fast tracking with the builder. An extraordinary concept was needed to create the kind of building that Emmanuel wanted within the footprint of the building. Our “big idea” was the conversion of a two floor computer room into a dramatic, center atrium with a glass roof that served as common space, lounge and community room. The basic structure was retained but the building itself was virtually gutted and built new from the inside out to accommodate suite style rooms as well as new building envelope, windows, roof, mechanical and electrical systems, and elevators.86 | Experience: Firm Overview Experience: Firm Overview | 87

As one of the most public of buildings on campus, it is a facility that is integral to the daily lives of many WIT constituents – students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Creating an energetic vibe and a sense of place is an essential element to the project’s success as well as meeting the strict budget and schedule. The Flanagan Campus Center at Beatty Hall project includes the construction of approximately 7,000 gsf of new building space in order to expand and renovate the dining commons, kitchen and servery as well as renovate approximately 23,000 gsf of other existing space. The $10 million project includes the development of a new, two story addition to the Ward Street side of Beatty Hall, removal of pre-cast panels from the northerly façade of the building and installation of new fenestration to enhance building appearance. This allows for modest floor space expansion and development of a new main entrance to the building to provide a new interior lobby and enhanced access and egress to the first three floors of the facility. This project also includes an array of improvements aimed at enhancing pedestrian access to, and connections through, Wentworth’s campus.100 | Experience: Firm Overview Experience: Firm Overview | 101
  52. 52. stonehill college: merkert-tracy hall Easton, MA adaptive reuse project type: Renovation area: 40,000 Square Feet Built in 1948, the same year that Stonehill opened, Merkert-Tracy Hall was the young College’s first major construction project. It opened in February 1949 as a science center and classroom building. An addition was constructed in 1979. In 2009, Stonehill built a new state-of-the-art science building on its lower campus and made plans to renovate the old facility into an administrative office building for two divisions, Advancement and Finance as well as the Human Resources Department. Initially, SG&A provided a feasibility study which documented existing conditions, determined the best new use for the building, created a preliminary budget for the agreed upon use, and a subsequent schedule for design and construction. The findings of the study were presented to the Board of Trustees for funding approval. Working with the Facilities Department team as well as senior management, SG&A continued with programming, design and construction administration. The $6 million project was completed in October 2010 and staff moved into the facility on November 11, 2010.102 | Experience: Firm Overview Experience: Firm Overview | 103
