BOND Breaks Ground on Stonehill College Project
BOSTON, MA BOND, the Northeast's premier building, civil, utility and energy construction firm, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Stonehill College's Academic & Welcome Center. The ceremony was attended by members of the College, academic administrators, trustees, students, faculty and staff, as well as the BOND project team and design partner S/L/A/M Collaborative.
BOND is providing preconstruction and construction management services for the 35,000-square-foot academic & welcome center, built on the site of the Old Student Union. The Center will feature an admissions room with tiered seating for more than 50 people, administrative and faculty offices, a 350-seat auditorium, classrooms, meeting spaces, bookstore and Au Bon Pain CafÃ©.
"BOND is proud to work with Stonehill College on yet another important endeavor to improve the student experience on campus," said Robert Murray, BOND President. "This new state-of-the-art center will become a hub for many students to gather and learn about the Stonehill experience for years to come."
The new Center will serve as a welcoming focal point to the college, offering students a wonderful introduction to the campus, as well as demonstrating the value of a Stonehill education. It's also the cornerstone building of a series of improvements to the academic quadrangle.
The project is currently on-track, within budget and slated for completion August 2018 in time for the academic school year.
