Bridgewater State University
Weygand Residence Hall

Architect

Perkins & Will

The new George A. Weygand Hall dormitory at Bridgewater State University was designed with a mission of sustainability and green technologies in mind. The 159,000 sf building is now home to 500 students in suite-style units, living-learning communities, a health services office, and a counseling center.

The structural design comprised steel framing with a composite slab on deck structural floor system. Using shallow members and carefully placed beam locations coordinated with the design team, the structural floor heights were minimized. Odeh worked closely with the Perkins and Will team to create unique architectural "bay window" protrusions using an economical steel hanger system. The "bay windows" cantilever in various locations along the facade and appear to float above the courtyard below.

The project was developed and is owned by the Massachusetts State College Building Authority (MSCBA).
