Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Building 2 - Cambridge, MA

BOND has been selected to complete the 120,000 s/f comprehensive renovation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Building 2. Part of the Institute's historic, Bosworth-designed Main Group, Building 2's renovation marks a significant step in protecting and enhancing MIT's world-class education and research. The Main Group will celebrate its centennial anniversary in 2016. Incorporating many elements of sustainable design, Building 2's restoration will target LEED Silver certification.
BOND is currently collaborating with Imai Keller Moore Architects to complete the first phase of Building 2's renovation. Focused on the update of the chemistry department, this phase will revitalize classroom and laboratory space, update building systems and infrastructure, and restore an exterior wall at the adjacent Building 4.
Designed by Ann Beha Architects, the project's second phase, beginning this month, will renew 97,000 s/f of math department classroom, office, seminar and laboratory space. BOND's team will complete the historic building's exterior restoration during this phase. The renovation of occupied spaces will require a strong awareness of adjacent building users, particularly around sensitive laboratory areas housing ongoing research.
"BOND is honored to renew a landmark structure at MIT's historic Main Group," said Robert Murray, BOND president. "We look forward to delivering a revitalized building that upholds this campus' tradition of design excellence and innovation."
BOND has led the construction management effort for some of the Boston area's most iconic college and university building projects, including Harvard University's Northwest Laboratories, Boston University's East Campus Student Services Center, MIT's Media Lab Expansion and Wentworth Institute of Technology's Ira Allen Center for Sciences and BioMedical Engineering.
