About Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine
Approved renovation and expansion of Boston University's existing Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) in the South End. A new 7-story, 41,900-square-foot addition to the existing 7-story, 84,200-square-foot GSDM building will be constructed, expanding the GSDM to 126,100 total square feet. The addition will rise seven stories along the northwest edge of the existing building and one level along the northeast edge of the existing building. Approximately 53,100 square feet of the existing building will be renovated, bringing the GSDM in line with Boston University's modern vision and improving accessibility. An existing one-story cafeteria will be demolished in order to construct the new addition.
The resulting GSDM building will feature office, instructional, clinical, and student collaborative space, incorporating the latest technology and creating multi-functional learning space. As part of the proposed project, the building's exterior will be fully modernized, featuring a new terra-cotta and glass curtain wall facade. The project will be constructed across three phases over 39 months optimizing use of the building for classes and patient treatment throughout construction. Construction of the project is expected to commence in early January 2018. The new addition will be constructed first, followed by renovation of the existing building. Completion of the project is expected in Spring 2021. The following are project renderings:
