Xaverian Brothers High School - Science Facility Expansion

Westwood, Massachusetts

Beacon Architectural Associates worked with Xaverian Brothers High School to complete additional campus improvements in time for the Fall 2015 school year. The project entailed a new academic wing which includes two laboratory spaces and five classrooms for their science and engineering programs. BAA designed the space to resemble what a typical lab and classroom space would look like at a college or university level. The lab area opens up to the classroom without being separated by a wall or partition, allowing for easy transition between lecture and hands-on learning. Each lab is 1,700 square feet with six-foot fume hoods, gel electrophoresis equipment for analyzing DNA, balances, new microscopes, and various other state-of-the-art equipment for the students to gain the most out of their learning experience. This new science and engineering wing will also allow for XBHS to expand their science curriculum. The design/build project team successfully completed the 8,300 square foot addition in five months.
