Gilbane Building Company, Wentworth Institute of Technology Break Ground on New Athletic Field and Integrated Parking Structure

BOSTON, MA — Administrators, alumni, faculty, and students from Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT) joined representatives from Gilbane Building Company, STV, and CD Smith to celebrate the official groundbreaking of a new integrated parking garage and athletic field project.

Designed by CD Smith, the new fields and integrated parking structure will support Wentworth’s continued growth as a top-notch institution and further improve the quality of student life. The softball and soccer fields will meet NCAA regulations, with a future field expansion planned over Halleck Street that will accommodate 200 to 500 spectators and athletes.

“This project is certainly the next step in the development of our department and the transformation of our student athlete experience,” said Cheryl Aaron, WIT Director of Athletics. “Our current and future student athletes will have the opportunity to practice and compete in a new facility that meets their competitive needs on a regulation turf field, with new team locker room spaces, an expanded sports medicine clinic, and other amenities that support their development.”

In delivering this project, Gilbane brings back to the WIT campus the core team who delivered the Center for Engineering, Innovation, and Sciences building in 2019, and will again engage student population into the construction process through co-op opportunities.

“We value our long-standing and continued partnership with Wentworth and are excited to be back on campus to deliver this new athletic facility,” said Mike O’Brien, Senior Vice President and Business Unit Leader for Gilbane in Massachusetts. “In delivering this project, we will employ the latest advances in construction, safety, sustainability, and innovation, while also providing economic opportunities for local and diverse trade partners, as well as Boston residents.”
