Boston Technical College Announces Groundbreaking of New Campus

Franklin Cummings Tech, a private technical college in Boston, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of a new, 66,000-square-foot facility as its new campus, according to a news release. The college partnered with Studio G Architects and Studio ENEE for the facility’s design. The building will stand three stories and cover 66,000 square feet. The non-profit college provides affordable technical educational opportunities to help students advance their career growth.

“The groundbreaking of our new campus marks a pivotal moment in our mission to deliver transformative technical and trade education that leads to economic advancement for our students,” said Franklin Cummings Tech President Dr. Aisha Francis. “Our new campus will provide an environment that not only meets the needs of current students but also anticipates the demands of future educational programs.”

Amenities will include shared classrooms, technical labs, outdoor gathering spaces, student lounges, and more. A rooftop learning lab will offer experience with mechanical systems and renewable energy technologies. From a design standpoint, the campus is targeting a LEED Gold certification through use of passive design strategies, renewable energy sources, and an energy-efficient mechanical infrastructure.

"At Studio G, we are deeply committed to designing spaces that not only meet the functional needs of our clients but also contribute positively to the communities they serve,” said Sally Gibson, Senior Project Manager at Studio G Architects. “The new campus for Franklin Cummings Tech exemplifies this commitment, as it will not only provide cutting-edge educational facilities but also serve as a catalyst for the revitalization of Nubian Square.”
