Shawmut Hosts Topping Off Ceremony for Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine

BOSTON, MA — Shawmut Design and Construction, a construction management firm, recently hosted a topping off and beam signing ceremony on a 41,900-square-foot expansion and 53,100-square-foot renovation of Boston University’s (BU) Goldman School of Dental Medicine in Boston. The event featured remarks from Kevin Sullivan, Vice President of New England Institutional at Shawmut, and Jeffery Hutter, Dean of the Goldman School of Dental Medicine.
In partnership with the university’s facilities and real estate planners, project manager Compass Project Management, and architect SmithGroupJJR, the team developed a phased renovation and expansion plan to optimize the use of the classroom and patient treatment spaces by the dental school during construction. The $112-million project will be completed in three phases, with the final phase slated to finish by February of 2021.
The expansion will include office, instructional, clinical and student collaborative spaces on seven existing levels, plus support spaces, and an entirely new 140-seat auditorium on the first floor. The interior renovation of the existing structure will reconfigure the layout of the patient and student/faculty entry, and clinical, classroom and student spaces. Work on the building will continue without any interruption to classes.
When completed, the construction will transform the building’s exterior, creating a new façade that will not only allow more light into the building, but also fit into the aesthetic of its Boston and medical campus neighborhoods. The renovated and expanded building will increase clinical space by more than 60 percent, making treatment environments more comfortable and flexible. The completed project will also offer students, residents and patients a student and resident lounge, a café and collaborative study areas on the first floor.
