The Tufts Science and Engineering Complex (SEC) was constructed with future demand in mind. The building which opened this past fall (2017) added more than 47,000 square-feet of laboratories,
classrooms, and support rooms to Tufts’s science and engineering facilities, according to the university, which said the flexible design
allows for the addition of more space to meet future demand.
Tufts University believes that the new center will create an atmosphere of innovation,
collaboration, and discovery campus, especially with the continual life sciences boom in the area.
175,000-square-foot facility on College Avenue includes a new
80,000-square-foot building and the existing Robinson and Anderson
halls. The project added more than 47,000 square feet of laboratories,
classrooms, and support rooms to Tufts’s science and engineering
facilities, according to the university.
The project was completed on schedule using Touchplan,
a construction software that allows developers to plan, implement, and
monitor projects in their entirety. The innovative software gives
developers the ability to see the full spectrum of their project down to
every last detail. Touchplan has let developers keep their projects on or ahead of time leading to lower costs and more efficient construction.
Construction complete at new Tufts University Science and Engineering Complex
Tufts University has unveiled its’ state-of-the-art new Science and Engineering Complex (SEC), a 175,000-square-foot facility dedicated to STEM education located on the university’s Medford campus. The SEC features a combination of a 79,000-square-foot new-construction addition and 96,000 square feet of renovated space, containing laboratories, classrooms, support rooms and other core facilities. The SEC is built to LEED Platinum sustainability specifications and is located steps from the future College Avenue station on the MBTA Green Line Extension.
