Amherst College endowment offices

Project Description

The Newbury Street office for Amherst College Endowment is underway, which includes 3,500 SF of fit-out and renovation work to a 4th floor penthouse overlooking Newbury Street. Structural work includes the removal of masonry bearing party walls to open the space and reframing of structural beams at the roof line to maximize ceilings heights. The existing elevator shaft will be altered to relocate the entrance for improved circulation and visibility.  Glass office walls from Transwall will demise the common and private areas while maintaining a visual connection throughout. In general, the space will receive all new metal framing, insulation, mechanicals, plumbing, sprinkler and electrical work, finishes will include new wood floors and custom built-in cabinetry with stone tops.
