The Suffolk University is shifting its campus from its Beacon Hill base to Boston’s vibrant downtown. Students can now enjoy Suffolk’s newest campus building - 20 Somerset Street. The new building has 10 floors (two of which are below street level) and it features classrooms that encourage collaborative learning and use the most cutting-edge educational technologies. This 110,000 square foot building will house Suffolk University’s physics, chemistry and biology departments as well as the communications and journalism department.
Once again this year, projects completed by BPDL were awarded by the industry for their operational and innovative quality. The two projects were the Whitney Museum of American Art that sits on the top of the High Line in New York. This project is a creation of the architect Renzo Piano Building Workshop, in partnership with Cooper Robertson. The restoration done on Boston College’s St-Mary’s Hall was also awarded for exemplary workmanship under the supervision of architect office DiMella Shaffer and McGinley Kalsow Associates. Awards will be presented at a special ceremony in the spring of 2016.
For the 3rd consecutive year, teams formed by personnel members of BPDL and other partners took part in this 117 km relay race around Lake Memphremagog. The course runs through Canada and the United States. This initiative benefits the Christian Vachon Foundation, which aims at promoting academic perseverance and success by giving an equal chance to all youth. This year, BPDL put together 3 teams who competed among friends for a good cause.
