Brookline High School Unveils 118K-SF Building for STEM Learning
Skanska and the Town of Brookline, MA have completed a 118,000-square-foot building for Brookline Highschool that spans partially over the MBTA Greenline Brookline Hills Station.
The building — which places a special focus on physics —broadens the school’s capacity to teach and inspire students in a variety of versatile, state-of-the-art learning environments. It features lab space, classrooms, event space, dining and food service areas, a library and various collaboration spaces.
Skanska also demolished a large portion of the existing high school in order to build a new, fully equipped 70,000-square-foot STEM wing addition with biology and chemistry labs and classrooms, collaboration and maker spaces, a culinary arts kitchen and student restaurant/café seating.
“STEM education opens doors for students to pursue any job they want in any industry. In construction especially, skillsets learned through STEM education are imperative to our daily operations,” said Bryan Northrop, Skanska EVP and general manager.
