Kilachand Residence Hall
Finegold Alexander is designing the renovation and reconstruction of Kilachand Hall, the site of Boston University’s Kilachand Honors College. FA’s comprehensive study recommended an internal stair and elevators to service the increased occupant load of the ninth floor and to enable the removal of exterior fire escapes. Through creative repurposing of found space on the residential floors, FA has been able to plan accessible bedrooms and bathrooms without reducing overall bed count. The renovation will include significant life safety upgrades, exterior masonry restoration, infrastructure renewal and flood proofing of basement mechanical areas for enhanced resiliency.
