WPI Faraday Residence Hall

DOC was excited to work again with WPI to expand their Gateway Park campus. This 258-bed, 89,000-square-foot, apartment-style student residence hall was designed by Boston-based ADD Inc. to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification standards. The fast-track design-build project was completed in time for occupancy in the fall semester of 2013. The residence hall houses upperclass, undergraduate, and graduate students. The building features four-person apartments with full kitchens, living rooms, and compartmentalized bathrooms. The air-conditioned building also includes recreation facilities, technology suites, and full wireless access. The design of the building called for significant green space including a plaza and sitting walls.
