Boston-based Suffolk Construction said it will perform preconstruction and construction management services for the project, which is scheduled to begin in May.
The first phase of the project includes making upgrades to dormitories and campus facilities.
“The renovation will include a 72-bed suite-style, four-story dormitory addition that will expand Maria Hall by 31,000 square feet,” Suffolk Construction said in a press release. “The upgrades will feature enhanced fire protection to Angela, Domitilla, and Maria Halls, as well as campus-wide utility improvements to the water and electrical services. A new quad and walkway, providing security and lighting, will convert the existing focal point of the campus into a green space, connecting the quadrangle, athletic, and science centers, and the Spellman Philatelic Museum. The library entrance will also be changed to face the campus new quad.”
