UMass Amherst South College Academic Facility

Work is underway on the historic South College building at UMass Amherst. Designed by Kliment-Halsband, DiMella-Shaffer, the project includes renovation of 30,000 sq-ft of the original building built in 1886, and an addition totaling 67,500 sq-ft. Renovations to the existing building encompass all mechanical, electrical, plumbing and life-safety elements. A four-story addition will add common areas, faculty offices, classrooms and auditoria. The new building is targeting LEED Silver certification with super-efficient HVAC systems, advanced storm water control, and extensive use of recycled materials.
