Weston, Mass. — Suffolk Construction awarded preconstruction and construction management services.
Weston, Mass. — Suffolk Construction has been selected to perform preconstruction and construction management services for phase one of the Regis College campus-wide renovation. Regis College is a private Roman Catholic-affiliated college in the Boston metropolitan area. The first phase of the renovation consists of a $24 million upgrade to dormitories and campus facilities and a quadrangle that will improve the pedestrian experience.
The renovation will include a 72-bed suite-style, four-story dormitory addition that will expand Maria Hall by 31,000 square feet. The upgrades will feature enhanced fire protection to Angela, Domitilla, and Maria Halls, as well as campus-wide utility improvements to the water and electrical services. A new quad and walkway, providing security and lighting, will convert the existing focal point of the campus into a green space, connecting the quadrangle, athletic and science centers, and the Spellman Philatelic Museum. The library entrance will also be changed to face the campus’ new quad.
Project delivery is scheduled for completion in June 2015. The architect is Sasaki Associates Inc., and Colliers International is the owner’s project manager.
Regis College is currently applying for a grant for a new science center, which is proposed for phase two. Also included in Phase Two are renovations to the existing student center as well as additional renovations to the library, dormitories, and athletic center.
