Buckingham Browne & Nichols School
|Owner:||Buckingham Browne & Nichols School|
Building a Renaissance and more at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge.
Suffolk Construction completed this Cambridge project, which entailed the renovation of more than 81,000 square feet of facilities and the addition of 28,546 square feet of new construction, while minimizing disruptions on an active campus. Suffolk provided preconstruction and construction management services for this project. The education project included numerous renovations to the Cambridge school as well as a new three-story building named Renaissance Hall. The new building includes classrooms, an internet cafe, a cafeteria, a kitchen and an auditorium on the first floor; music, ceramics and photography space on the second floor; and painting, drawing and printmaking studios on the third floor. Also added were a new head of school’s office, student gathering space, faculty offices and performance and rehearsal space for the choral and orchestral music groups. To allow room for the expansion, the construction team relocated the Sloyd Building, a historic woodshop that has been a part of the BB&N campus since the early 1900s. The school’s front entrance was also transformed into a three-story glass structure. The project was built by Suffolk Construction Company in Cambridge, MA.
