Implementing innovative technologies to set a new standard for biomedical research.
The Albert Sherman Center is a new 512,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art research and educational facility on the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Worcester Campus. Standing 11 stories high, with nine occupied floors topped by a two-story mechanical penthouse, the facility includes research laboratories, six learning community centers, a 350-seat auditorium, conference rooms, a full-service café and dining area, and a fitness center.
The project team implemented some of the most innovative planning and construction methods in the industry, including cutting-edge virtual design and construction and six-dimensional facility models, to deliver this new standard for biomed research facilities. In addition to providing preconstruction and construction management services for the Albert Sherman Center, our project team oversaw construction of a nearby 1,411-space parking garage on the Worcester campus. The project was built by Suffolk’s science & technology contractors in Worcester, MA.
