The complex is a key component of Northeastern’s Institutional Master Plan to strengthen ties with the local community and the city. VHB is working in partnership with the design team to integrate the stormwater water management with the site landscape architectural features, creating a picturesque and functional open space that both Northeastern and the community will enjoy.</p><p>This LEED Certified facility will provide 230,000 square feet of research and educational space with a construction cost of $225 million. The project is the first private research development in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood and is expected to create 600 jobs created during construction. The ISEC will be completed in Summer 2017.</p><p> “This project is truly special for the VHB ISEC project team. The entire VHB design team is made-up of Huskies including principle-in-charge, project manager, project engineers and co-op interns.  We are not only contributing to a great project, but also giving back to our school and our community using the education and training we received at Northeastern,” said Chi Man, PE, Project Manager. </p></div>
