For Emerson College, KlingStubbins created the first completely new residence hall in the college’s 124-year history. Located on “Piano Row” just opposite the historic Boston Common, the 14-story facility provides state-of-the-art housing for nearly 600 students. The facility contains three floors of student activity space, an NCAA tournament-sized basketball court, and athletic support and administration facilities. Designed for a LEED rating, the building was developed on a “brownfield” site and contains high efficiency MEP and lighting equipment, recycled materials, and “eco-friendly” furnishings.
Biosquare Building III, one of the first LEED certified research labs in the Northeast, was designed by KlingStubbins for Boston Medical Center, Boston, MA. An Environmental Design program was incorporated into the development of the facility with the understanding that lab buildings typically impact natural resources at a greater level and require significant energy loads. The 160,000 sq.-ft., 8-story facility, constructed on a “brownfield” site, was designed to house both institutional and private-sector research tenants and features high-efficiency MEP systems, and low wattage lighting. Construction waste recycling and utility rebates were incorporated into the LEED design strategy.
