Integrated Sciences Complex Most Diverse Public Project in Massachusetts History

The University of Massachusetts Boston recently released an article praising the workforce diversity on the Integrated Sciences Complex. The project is being touted as the most diverse public construction project in Massachusetts history and is being highlighted in a manual written by two members of Policy Group on Tradeswomen’s Issues (PGTI). The manual provides checklists of best practices specifically designed for each stakeholder involved in the construction process. For more information please follow the link below:

Walsh Brothers is proud to be a part of this groundbreaking project and to display our commitment to creating a workforce that is diverse and that represents the local community.

The 220,000 SF Integrated Sciences Complex represents UMass Boston's first signature building on campus and marks the first phase of the Campus Master Plan. The facility will house clean rooms, a growth center for developmental science teaching labs, classrooms, offices and conference rooms. The building's multiple façade systems will consist of metal panel, glass systems, and a complex “jewel” curtainwall.
