Northeastern University Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Building

Payette has been obtained by Northeastern University to design a new 257,000sf Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Building (ISEB). The new facility will support teaching and research programs for the College of Science, College of Engineering, Bouvé College of Health Sciences, and College of Computer and Information Science. ISEB will be planned and designed as generic, open laboratories that are efficient, flexible and adaptable to support the changing STEM and STEAM nature of teaching and research. The new facility will have wet and dry labs, core facilities, laboratory support space, offices for faculty and post-doctoral and graduate students, instructional space/teaching laboratories, and meeting space to accommodate meetings/conferences for a variety of academic events.

Our services included a cost estimate, reconciliation, and value engineering during the preliminary design, schematic design, and design development phases. We are contracted to deliver a cost estimate and reconciliation during the 50% contract documents, 90% contract documents, and 100% contract documents (update) design stages.
