Science center to inspire innovation at Massachusetts liberal arts college

November 10, 2011 |

The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams, Mass., will undergo its first major construction project in 40 years, welcoming the new Center for Science and Innovation to the campus in 2013. Led by Columbia Construction Co. and Einhorn Yaffee Prescott, the Building Team will break ground on the project in December.

The 67,000-sf, three-story academic facility will house labs, office space, a rooftop classroom and greenhouse, a two-story atrium, and informal learning spaces for innovative education. The façade will be constructed of terra cotta with metal panels and punched windows. Seeking LEED Silver certification, the center will allow for interdisciplinary instruction in the chemistry, biology, environmental science, psychology, and physics departments.
