COMPLETE: Weissman Foundry
Construction Winter 2018–fall 2018
The Weissman Foundry will be a new building centrally located between the hearts of Babson’s and Olin’s campuses on Map Hill Drive across from Trim Parking Lot. The approximately 9,800 square foot building will have space available for student project workspaces, prototyping resources, experiential teaching spaces, social kitchen, and conference and group study space. The purpose of the building is to serve the needs of students pursuing entrepreneurial ventures where physical prototyping is central, promoting greater collaboration with the Olin College of Engineering, and Wellesley College; and complementing existing "innovation spaces" on campus available in the Olin Graduate School of Business and the Leonard A. Schlesinger First Year Innovation Center, particularly by providing a dedicated "messy" project workspace where students can work on projects at all hours.
Work is completing and ready for Fall classes.
Steel has been completed over the building and interior concrete flooring has been poured
The project is underway with site clearance complete, concrete foundation poured and walls beginning to rise.
