Academic Projects

Academic environments are highly competitive, with schools competing for a finite pool of students. Classroom spaces, athletic and performing arts centers, and residence hall amenities matter, and influence student choice. As a university and school construction management company in Massachusetts, BW Kennedy & Co. has built these disparate program areas, partnering with academic clients to provide solutions that achieve program goals with the best value, at the best cost. From fast-track summer construction to traditional construction, we have the requisite expertise to plan and execute to a client's exacting standards.

Middlesex School Mary Mae Faculty

Middlesex School Facility Housing

Location: Concord, MA

Middlesex School engaged BW Kennedy & Co. to help them find a modular solution for construction of the Mary Mae Faculty Housing complex, consisting of five new homes. The desired site presented complications as it contained multiple soil classifications which had to be managed differently according to their classification. Phased construction was used to address site issues while maintaining the school’s goal of having occupancy of the new homes by the start of the academic year. BW Kennedy & Co. coordinated closely with the modular home builder so that the site work, foundations, and mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection work transitioned seamlessly for the school.
