Project Summary

The Simth Campus Center Floor 4/College renovation project is a 7,730 square foot renovation undertaken by the Harvard Faculty of Arts of Sciences (FAS) to renovate existing leased space for the College’s Advising Program Office and the Program in General Education. Smith Campus Center, which is owned by Harvard University Real Estate Services (HRES), is a ten-story concrete building that provides leased office space for numerous Harvard organizations. The project included the north wing of the fourth floor of Smith Campus Center. The renovation was an opportunity to reconfigure spaces to meet programmatic requirements for twenty-seven occupants – such as additional conference room spaceupdate finishes and furnishings, and increase the efficiency and quality of the fourth floor lighting and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls. Construction began in the spring of 2009 and was completed in August 2009.
