April traditionally brings showers, but more importantly this year it marks the achievement of several milestones in the construction of the new student residence at 815 Albany Street on the Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC).
Foundation work has now been completed! Work on the grading for the underground drainage and waste pipes will continue and beginning Friday, April 8, the crane will arrive at the site. This means that the erection of the steel will begin on Monday, April 11.
The nine-story, $40 million structure is designed by Beacon Architectural Associates with a brick and limestone façade. Its 104 two-bedroom suites that include bath, kitchenette and living spaces will accommodate 208 students, each with individual bedrooms, the standard for graduate student housing. Walsh Brothers is the contractor for the building, which is expected to take 18 months to complete.
