To make the campus more attractive to students, the University of Massachusetts constructed a new residential complex for its Commonwealth Honors College. The complex includes seven buildings sited around several courtyards. In addition to the dormitories, which houses 1,500 students, the project also brings a new cafe, administrative, and classroom space. SGH consulted on the building enclosures and flooring.
