Mixed-Use Research Building

Northeastern University

Burlington, MA


Reflecting Northeastern's commitment to addressing issues of global security, this leading-edge facility will serve as a research hub and the cornerstone for the University’s emerging Innovation Campus. Laboratories will support a diverse array of academic, government, and private industry partners collaborating on solutions to enhance the capacity of communities, critical systems, and infrastructure to withstand, respond to, and recover from man-made and natural catastrophes

Our integrated AE design optimizes building efficiency, providing more net assignable space while reducing gross building area, and offers innovative, energy-saving MEP systems to save on first costs while reducing operating costs over the life of the building. The Design/Build team of EYP and Gilbane is taking a fast-track approach to meet a targeted completion date of Spring 2019.
