Lee Kennedy Co., Inc. recently topped off the new 122,000-sf Library & Learning Commons at Salem State University. 

When it opens to students in the fall of 2013, the $60 million facility will offer new archival space; circulation and reference areas; collections; reading spaces; study rooms; instruction labs and a Dean’s suite. Boston architect Shepley Bulfinch designed the space to LEED Silver standards.

LKCo.’s team has construction progressing quickly on the active campus’s tight site, phasing work to meet the schedule as well as accommodate tight logistics to ensure both safety and uninterrupted campus operations throughout construction. 

The Salem State Library & Learning Commons is part of an active academic portfolio for Lee Kennedy Co. that includes the Berklee College of Music high rise; Fitchburg State University Hammond Campus Center, and UMass Lowell Fox Dining Hall renovations. BD+C
