Weatherproofing underway at Brandeis University’s New Residence Hall in Waltham The exterior of Brandeis University’s $38 million, 164-bed New Residence Hall, recently topped off, is now being weatherproofed. Moisture-resistant cladding has been installed across the facade, and fireproofing is now being applied above the cladding. In the coming months, exterior finish panels and windows will be installed along the facade. The building will include a bridge connecting levels two through four surrounded with a floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall, allowing for abundant natural lighting. Once the 53,000-square-foot building is sealed, interior finishing work will begin in order to prepare dormitories and common spaces for the Fall 2018 semester. The New Residence Hall will incorporate two historic towers of Brandeis’ iconic Usen Castle dormitory, which is being replaced and expanded with the project, and will include sustainable features such as a rooftop solar array and a geothermal heating and cooling system.
