Nantucket Field Station

University of Massachusetts Boston, Satellite Campus

This project was a renovation to an existing laboratory located on Nantucket and owned by Boston University. The project reorganizes the existing space and enlarged the toilet room, for code compliance, while maintaining the existing footprint. Existing wood siding, windows, and framing had begun to rot in areas along the exterior of the building and required replacement.

The building is located within the Nantucket Historic District and required coordination with the local preservation society when choosing new materials for the exterior repairs, that would be both appropriate and durable.
