College in Beverly plans for expansion

March 30, 2018 by  

Endicott College in Beverly is planning several changes to the campus over the next couple of years.

One of them is the construction of a new academic facility, which Dr. Richard Wylie, President of Endicott College, said will replace the centrally-located Wax Academic Center. He added that it was determined that trying to repair it was not feasible.

The new academic building will be built adjacent to the current one, and will include more lecture halls and classroom space, seminar rooms, and other amenities. All the faculty will be housed in the building, and professional studies and graduate programs will be brought to this part of the campus.

The building is expected to be completed by the summer of 2019, at which point the old academic building will be torn down.

An addition, 50,000 square feet in size, to the Judge Science Center is also planned. This will include space for a new engineering program at the college, incubator space for the growing interest in biotechnology, and laboratories. It is expected to be completed a year from now.

A parking structure will also be built on a piece of land which has limited use and will be completed by the fall of this year.

Poster printing companies can be hired to create posters that can be displayed throughout the campus so that students and faculty will know about these upgrades.
