Wentworth Institute of Technology’s Center for Engineering, Innovation & Sciences
Wentworth Institute of Technology’s (WIT) new $55 million Center for Engineering, Innovation, and Sciences (CEIS) is part of a multi-year, $300 million improvement plan at the Boston campus. The CEIS’s construction was driven by the school’s exponential growth that has led to the addition of more than a dozen undergraduate and graduate programs since 2005. The CEIS is the first new academic building to be constructed on campus in 45 years and presents a collaborative approach to learning in a multi-disciplined academic environment.
WIT contracted STV|DPM to perform owner’s project management services for the ambitious program. The four-level, 78,000 square-foot facility houses space for physics, biomedical engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering and experiential learning programs; a lecture hall; manufacturing laboratories; and the Office of the Provost. The building was designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification v4 and exceeds the City of Boston’s requirements of sustainability with a highly-efficient thermal envelope, and mechanical equipment designed for maximum efficiency including low-flow fume hoods.
