MSCBA/Westfield State University

DPM managed the design and construction of a new, 400 bed residence hall at Westfield State University. The $40M project was a collaboration between the University and the Massachusetts State College Building Authority (MSCBA). The 135,000sf complex includes two major 5-story buildings linked by sky corridors and gives Westfield State the highest on-campus residency among the State system. The new hall is specifically designed to accommodate students that require physical and behavioral assistance.  DPM coordinated the assembly of the design team and construction manager, managed the design process, and oversaw construction.

Diversified also managed the design and concentrated renovations to the Ely Campus Center. The $15M program, funded collaboratively by the University and the MSCBA, included complete HVAC and electrical system replacement, new roofs, windows and doors, sections of new building façade and interior renovations for a variety of departments. The project also included modifications to the Ely Library.
