Shawmut Design and Construction has been awarded an extensive renovation contract involving three dormitory buildings at Brown University.
The project will enhance the first-year experience of Brown students, and includes a top-to-bottom renovation of Metcalf and Miller Halls, which will be converted into double occupancy bedrooms. The connection between Metcalf and Miller Halls to Andrews Hall will be removed, creating three independent structures.
Andrews Hall will also undergo an extensive renovation. Where possible, Shawmut will convert one, two and three student bedrooms into double occupancy rooms. Kitchenette and recycling closet space on each floor will be combined to create a common area lounge. The exterior of the buildings will also be restored.
“Shawmut’s ability to continually deliver important projects on time and on budget has forged our long-lasting relationship with Brown University,” said Ron Simoneau, Vice President of Shawmut. “We look forward to continuing this exciting partnership in 2012 and beyond.”
Metcalf, Miller, and Andrews Halls are located on the Pembroke Campus on Lloyd Avenue in Providence. Construction is scheduled to begin in June 2012, and will be completed by December 2012. BD+C
