BOSTON – November 18, 2015 – Kaplan Construction, a WBE general contractor and construction management firm providing comprehensive building programs across Greater Boston, announced today that it has been selected by Northeastern University to renovate a laboratory for the College of Engineering.
In its first project on Northeastern’s Boston campus, Kaplan will renovate an existing interior laboratory at the Egan Engineering/Science Research Center and install new mechanicals, lighting, fire alarm, finishes and millwork to create a new experimental laboratory. The research facility includes a grouping of labs that currently serve multiple professors and students. The new lab will contain a 1,300-gallon acrylic water tank for experiments and an adjacent space with workstations where graduate students can plan and review experiments. In order to minimize disruptions, the lab space has sound proofing features in the walls, ceiling and doors. During construction, the neighboring labs will be operational so Kaplan and its sub-contractors will coordinate work closely with Northeastern faculty and staff to reduce interruptions to ongoing experiments.
Founded in 1898, Northeastern University is a global, experiential, research university built on a tradition of engagement with the world, creating a distinctive approach to education and research. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools, and select advanced degrees at campuses in Charlotte, North Carolina, Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Toronto.
