Wentworth Institute of Technology will use a $41.3 million MassDevelopment bond to build a 78,000-square-foot multipurpose academic building on its Boston campus.
The facility is the first new building in 45 years for Boston-based Wentworth, a private university that specializes in technical design and engineering, a representative from architectural firm Leers Weinzapfel Associates Architects said at a February presentation.
The multipurpose building will house myriad programs, including biomedical engineering; biomedical, civil engineering and experiential learning programs; science and manufacturing labs; office space; and presentation and gathering areas for students, faculty and staff. It will also house Accelerate, Wentworth’s innovation and entrepreneurship center, which serves as a launchpad for interdisciplinary extracurricular programs.
