Serving as the central location for Massachusetts College of Liberal Art’s STEM programs and science resource for the community, this 65,000 sf Center required an equally innovative façade. Utilizing a combination 30mm thick terra cotta, true zinc panels, ACM and profiled aluminum, these timeless materials created a modern look befitting of a state-of the-art science center. All 344 exterior wall panels were outfitted with exterior insulation contributing to this building receiving LEED Gold Certification.
