Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Project: Goddard Hall
Location: Worcester, MA
Architect: EYP Architecture & Engineering
WPI’s Goddard Hall, which houses the school’s Chemistry, Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering departments, received a host of upgrades in this two-phased, 25,000 sq. ft. renovation.
- All existing laboratories received new casework, fume hoods, lighting, flooring, audio visual equipment and mechanical systems.
- Implementation of rigorous dust control policies protected sensitive lab equipment.
- Sequencing of the phased construction, including replacement of 145 windows across three stories of the building, was largely scheduled during night shifts to minimize impact to students.
