Lasell College

New Academic Building
Newton, MA

Pinck & Co. was OPM for the construction of a new academic building, which upgraded the academic and science classrooms and provided more faculty office and community space.  The decision was made to demolish the existing Wass Hall science building and renovate and add to the existing Wolfe Hall to meet the needs of the college.  Due to the proximity of the buildings to each other, it was necessary to phase the renovation, addition and demolition projects, resulting in a 33-month project schedule. Working with the Architect, Construction Manager and the College, we were able to develop a plan to create a modular classroom complex on two remote parking lots that allowe us to perform this work in one complete phase, reducing the schedule from 33 months to 18 months.
