Finegold Alexander Architects has completed the renovation and reconstruction of Kilachand Hall at Boston University. The project, initiated in 2014, focused on enhancing the facilities of the Kilachand Honors College, reaching its final stage. The ninth-floor reconstruction aimed to create flexible, accessible study and gathering spaces, including a seminar room and small group study rooms with scenic views. Building-wide accessibility improvements, life safety upgrades, and sustainability measures were integrated into the project, to achieve LEED Gold certification. The project has received recognition for energy performance and features photovoltaics as part of a broader campus-wide commitment to renewable energy. Finally, extensive masonry restoration at Kilachand Hall’s exterior helps to secure the future of this historic building. The renovated Kilachand Hall is seen as a significant improvement for the living and learning environment of the Kilachand Honors College community.
