Roxbury Community College


W.T. Rich was hired to manage the renovations of three campus buildings that were occupied during construction. The scope of work included a new state-of-the-art nursing simulation lab in Building 4; a full renovation in Building 3 to accommodate a new kitchen and dining commons on the first floor; and new library and learning spaces on the second floor. Additional interior work included the renovation of toilet rooms and science laboratories. Exterior work included the installation of a new tapered roof system, replacement of existing masonry/windows, and other general envelope upgrades. The project required complex phasing to accommodate the occupants as well as MEP coordination with a separate, ongoing Chapter 25A Energy project that was being performed simultaneously to our project.
