Wellesley College Residences
Finegold Alexander Architects, together with Suffolk Construction, were initially engaged in late 2018 to complete selective renovations at Pomeroy Hall, a part of the historic Hazard Quad. That fast track summer work led to a series of projects, including a study for Severance Hall, review of code conditions and accessibility at Beebe Hall, renovations across the Tower Court complex, and a review of sleeping rooms across all the major halls to determine optimal capacity and increase equity. All projects were in support of the College’s efforts to address issues of deferred maintenance, life safety, accessibility, and energy use across the entire residential portfolio.
Our team assessed which areas of the building were more critical for current restoration and worked hand-in-hand with Suffolk and Salvucci Corporation to adjust scope and methods at the century old structures. This allowed the team to completely restore the stonework at a particularly beautiful arched entry to the Tower courtyard.
“You (Finegold Alexander) are both creative and practical, meeting the highest priorities of our competing needs. You are engaged and focused, accurate and competent. All while being personable and professional. A true pleasure to work with all of you.”
