Dyer Brown has been working with Boston University - Information Services & Technology (IS&T) to assist with its master planning efforts that address the campus’ on-going space needs, and meet the University’s overall efficient and economic campus planning objectives that are ever-evolving.
Scheduled to be completed in multiple phases, Phase 1 will consist of a 28,000 SF gut renovation at a Commonwealth Avenue property. The scope of work includes minor exterior renovations and interior space planning and build-out that will provide a mix of workstations, private offices, conference rooms, training rooms, and numerous areas dedicated to team collaboration. Based on Dyer Brown’s expertise in workplace strategies, design standards were developed for IS&T through a rigorous interview process involving all of its eleven departments. This will not only ensure that the needs of the staff are met, but by condensing the departments and reconfiguring interdepartmental adjacencies, the new design will create workflow efficiencies, and yield a more collaborative team environment. Future phases are pending approval and will be scheduled accordingly.
