BOSTON, MA – Siena Construction is proud to have an ongoing partnership with Harvard Business School. Since 2021, Siena has acted as construction manager on a variety of renovation projects for the private research university on their Boston campus:

Spangler Hall  

The Spangler Center is a 122,000 square foot campus community located at 115 Western Avenue. The building includes an auditorium, student and administrative offices, and event spaces. In 2021-22, Siena oversaw Dish Room renovations on the building’s lower level and first floor. The 12-week project schedule called for demolition of existing spaces, including tile flooring, walk-in cooler, sink removals, MEP relocation, ceiling tiles, light fixtures, sprinkler heads, dishwasher exhaust relocation, wall partitions, and plumbing fixtures.

Construction involved quarry tile flooring installation, new paneled walls, millwork, and floor sinks. Extensive food service equipment installations included accumulators, food waste collectors, hand/mop/soak sinks, sorting tables, dish machines, silverware sorting tables, shelving, and work tables; and reuse of existing faucets, sinks, and eye-wash stations. Project plans were created by Goody Clancy, with Food Service details by Ricca Design Studios, and MEPs by CMTA.

Teele Hall  

Located at 230 Western Avenue, Teele Hall is a 49,000 square foot, five-floor building, home to various administrative offices. Siena oversaw the renovation project, which included 1,000 square foot renovation of the first-floor bistro, adjacent storage room and replacement of the security desk. Renovations included alterations to the existing plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems. Project plans were created by MDS Architects.

Construction was overseen by Siena’s Project Executive Brian Ford, with assistance from Project Manager Kate Kepler and APM Areej Siddiqui. The team collaborated closely with the design team and Harvard’s facilities management to ensure building specifications were followed, and on-site activities were coordinated to limit the impacts to the campus community.
