General contracting and construction management firm Lauring Construction commenced work on a 41,000-square-foot Health Sciences Building at Assumption College in Worcester. The building is slated for completion in time for the fall 2020 semester.
Lauring has constructed a number of facilities at the private, Roman Catholic, liberal arts college, including the 64,000-square-foot Tsotsis Family Academic Center, the hub of academic life on campus as well as the Tinsley Campus Ministry Center.
For the Health Sciences Building, Lauring has completed site demolition, relocated utilities, and excavated in preparation of the foundations. The foundations are roughly 90% complete and Lauring has begun to erect structural steel. A small parking lot for the Emmanuel d’Alzon Library was removed, and will be replaced with a new driveway and parking lot.
