Bowdoin Wins ABC “Merit” Award for The Rivers School New Campus Center

November 2012

The Associated Builders and Contractors of Massachusetts has selected Bowdoin Construction as a Merit Award winner for The Rivers School Campus Center project. Winners were selected by an expert panel of judges to recognize the very best construction projects that ABC members have been a part of over the past year.

The project, located in Weston, MA, required the demolition of an existing building, and the construction of a new two-story, 30,420 s.f. state-of-the-art facility on this active independent school campus. The campus center, designed by Dario Designs, Inc., was constructed of structural steel, brick, cultured stone, aluminum/glass curtain wall systems, and a combination of asphalt shingle and EPDM roofing. Interior spaces feature a large student dining hall with servery, a commercial kitchen, and a café with a fireplace on the upper floor. The lower level includes twelve classrooms, a large art gallery, math and language department offices, five faculty offices, and several student gathering areas. The finished product displays maple millwork, sloped linear wood ceilings, and varied flooring systems, including carpet tile, terrazzo tile, quarry tile, and VCT, as well as extensive landscaping around the building. The project was completed within twelve months.
